Magnificent Sukkot


Join us for our fabulous Sukkot at the boutique Elma Luxury Hotel. The Elma Luxury Hotel in Zichron Ya’akov has 95 rooms and suites, and sets a new standard for luxury, with a staff and amenities that cater to guests’ every desire.
In our main building, guest rooms of various sizes all offer spectacular views of the Mediterranean. Separate from the main building are cottages, each of which can serve as either a two-floor unit with 2 bedrooms or as two independent units for different guests. Each floor has complete facilities and its own entrance.
All of our rooms, in the main building and cottages, are extraordinarily well appointed. Art works invite the eye to linger. And the beauty of the world beyond our walls – the yellow sun, the blue water, and the green plants – is reflected in carefully chosen fabrics and colors. As captivating as each room is, it may be difficult to take your eyes off the breathtaking views of the sea offered by every balcony and terrace.
