It was twilight time when we reached the top of the wooded hill where the hotel resides. We exited our vehicle facing the last rays of the setting sun, watched the lights twinkling from the hotel as if beckoning us, and felt we are at the beginning of a romantic date.
Indeed, visiting the “Hacienda Forestview” Resort Hotel and SPA is always magical. Overlooking the city of Ma’alot, the hotel, surrounded by 17 acres of lawns and natural forests bestows upon the visitor a fabulous sensation of seclusion, cool atmosphere and tranquility. The building, emulating an authentic, magical Spanish Hacienda, offers 142 stylish, accessorized regular and special rooms. For example, a family room adjacent to a wood covered “Zimmer” with its own private balcony that opens into the hotel garden and a large Jacuzzi with a pampering “raindrop” shower head.
The hotel is part of the C-Hotels Chain, renowned for the special treatment of its guests, which is particularly obvious here in the culinary area. The hotel offers a culinary experience that is extraordinary in hotels of its level, and includes excellent rich gourmet meals, Galilee style dishes inspired by the region, as well as Asado (Argentinian barbeque) and Poyke (South African outdoors cooking) nights.
The hotel pool is studded like a pearl among the trees and the lawns, in view of the landscapes of the North. The hotel’s spacious grounds offer game facilities and surprises for the whole family; a miniature-golf course, chess site, Poyke facility (“cooking in the ground”), Asado nights in the garden and experience yielding bonfire – are just a few of the experiences awaiting you at the Hacienda. The hotel also comprises a workout gym and a modern SPA center. The hotel is suitable for all guest types – families, hikers and couples of all ages.
