Based in Acre, Israel’s ancient port city, The Efendi blends in seamlessly with the warren of stone alleys, markets, and heritage sites that surround it. The hotel is reminiscent of a 19th-century sultan’s place, and upon arriving, guests will find themselves embraced by an unbelievably attentive and welcoming team of world-class staff.

Whilst conjuring an atmosphere of impossible grandeur, The Efendi is actually a small boutique property, with just 12 high-ceilinged rooms and suites. Every space a the hotel has been individually and lovingly designed to reflect an aesthetic ethos defined by a fusion of contemporary and traditional Israeli elements. On The Efendi’s ground floor, guests will find a small spa and treatment room, complete with a 400-year-old marble hammam. In addition to a wine cellar and basement wine bar, the hotel also boasts a sister restaurant in the form of Uri Buri – a delectable seafood-focused establishment.

Israel is a country where despite strong religious influence, LGBTQ+ individuals can live openly and freely. Although same-sex couples can not marry in Israel, the country was one of the first to recognize civil unions between same-sex couples and validates many LGBTQ+ marriages performed overseas. The country inherited anti-homosexuality laws from its British occupation, but formally repealed these in 1988.
