Family Packaging: A vacation in the north without leaving the hotel

Many will agree that a vacation with children is not “freedom.” Such a vacation requires running, providing them with activities and in the process also being able to breathe. While there are plenty of families going out into nature, water trails and hiking, there are also quite a few that have their big nightmare. so what are we doing? Find the hotels that offer another vacation, an IN HOUSE vacation, one that you can stay in a small radius of the hotel all the time without getting bored for a moment.

You do not have to stand for hours at Ben Gurion Airport to go on an all-inclusive style vacation abroad. In Israel, too, many hotels have realized that this coming summer they must provide a variety of activities so that the Israeli tourist will agree to stay in the country and pay. After two years of Corona, this is our first “routine” summer, and this is quite an opportunity to strengthen domestic tourism in the country.

The Giladi Hotel, in Kibbutz Kfar Giladi, offers a family summer vacation without breaking a sweat. They have already invested the effort and thought into finding all the solutions. I will start from the beginning – the hotel overlooks a breathtaking view of the Golan Heights, Mount Hermon, the Hula Valley and Lebanon. It has undergone a massive renovation in the last three years and has changed from “Kfar Giladi Hotel” to “Giladi Hotel”, so the village and the villages are no longer part of the new and modern design with 158 rooms and suites. It is spread over a very large area, full of vegetation and lovely corners, a large and spacious lobby that displays beautiful works of art by local artists, a new and pampering spa complex with a variety of treatments and a sauna, and a stunning roof-top with stunning views that make you forget we are still in the country. Having cellular reception).

A critical part of a vacation – food. No matter if you choose half board or full board, the food is good and varied. Chef Eric Gino is in charge of the kitchens, and the meals are just as rich as Israelis like: lots of dishes, lots of types of everything from everything, and delicious. In the mornings (except on Saturdays, for kosher reasons) there is a hot pizza stand straight from the oven, so the kids will be super-satisfied (after all, every kid’s dream is pizza in the morning, right?).

So what did we have? Beautiful views, a spacious hotel and areas where children can rave, great food, a spa to relax (because every parent on vacation with the kids deserves an hour of pampering), and now – to the pool. There are two pools, one outdoor and one indoor (and heated). The pools are large, but people with disabilities will have to wait for the help of a staff member to take them to them, because the road is full of stairs and cumbersome. The indoor pool is open Sunday to Thursday from 06:30 to 21:00, Friday and Saturday from 08:00 to 18:00. The outdoor pool is open all days of the week from 09:00 to 18:00.

And after you have exhausted the pool, know that a very well-equipped gym awaits you, an amazing and pampering gym room for the little ones (the “Giladods Club”) and even a playroom for teenagers with Xbox and treats. This is perhaps the highlight of the vacation, every age has a playroom invested for it. The children’s and youth club holds many activities and baking workshops for children – including a workshop for making fresh challahs with the chef every Friday.

And have we already concluded that this is a vacation for the lazy who do not want to run from place to place in the hot summer? If the activities at the hotel itself (which offers more changing content of workshops and film screenings) are not enough, they also offer activities in Kfar Giladi that are already included in the price and at no extra charge, such as a children’s tour to the zoo (where the animals can be fed), a secret slick tour, The coops “and the roaring lion monument and in the evening fascinating night lantern tours to” Beit Harishonim “or” Beit Hashomer “.

The great advantage of Kfar Giladi is that they have kept a great history, and no matter what your age, do not miss the secret slick tour, a magical tour that tells the story of the village and the north of the country, and a descent to the weapons slick that was preserved as it was. It is fascinating and intriguing and definitely adds to the experience.

Even if you do not feel like joining the hotel tour, you can in a few steps reach the “Poultry Trail”, where a cafe, an amazing bookstore that seems to have every existing book, artisan shops, galleries and even a fine local brewery awaits you. Regional sales fairs are also held from time to time. The trail is short and fun with lots of designed and magical seating areas, so it definitely closes the shopping and extra experience corner. In Kfar Giladi you will also find the “Beit Hashomer” museum – a fascinating museum that tells the story of the Hashomer movement in the establishment of the state. Do not miss the experience there, which also includes costumes and a coloring corner for children.

And if you still have the desire to enjoy all the variety of attractions that the north has to offer, you can enjoy kayaking, jeep and bicycle tours and balloons in the area. At the end of the holiday do not forget to stop at the roaring lion statue of the sculptor Avraham Melnikov. The statue was placed in 1934 in the cemetery between Tel Hai and Kfar Giladi, as a tombstone and monument in memory of the eight killed in the battle of Tel Hai, and allows a spectacular view of the area.
