The Nobu Hotel Tel Aviv, situated on Rothschild Boulevard, a luxurious and picturesque street at the heart of the city, will offer 38 rooms, a pool and fitness center, outdoor spaces, and a private rooftop for events.
Tel Aviv being a major tourist and business destination makes it a perfect fit for Nobu’s global clients, Nobu CEO Trevor Horwell said in a statement.
In the first 11 months of 2017, over 3.6 million tourists visited Israel, representing a 25% increase from the year before, according to a report published in December by Israel’s Ministry of Tourism.
The first Nobu hotel opened in 2013 in Las Vegas. With existing locations in Palo Alto, London, Ibiza, Manila and other locations worldwide, the hotel in Tel Aviv will be the company’s 17th location. Hotels in Toronto, Sao Paulo, Barcelona, and Atlanta, were also recently announced.
