Shirat Hayam Boutique Hotel

4 Stars

The Shirat Hayam Boutique Hotel lies on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, in front of the Golan Mountains scenery. This rare structure was built entirely of basalt blocks and arches typical of numerous Ottoman style constructions, and in 1850, it opened up with the name “Haifa hotel”. The hotel is among the first hotels to opened in Tiberias, in a time that hotels were called the names of cities in Palestine. In 1946, the hotel was hosted a famous Egyptian singer, Umm cul-tum, nicknamed “the star of of the East” and following the her visit – the hotel was renamed “Oriental star”

After the establishment of Israel the famous artist Shimshon Holzman lived in in the building, where he created an art gallery that was available to visitors. Among the numerous bohemian visitors that stayed at the hotel, a few are many famous artists: Nahum Gutman, Reuven Rubin, Amos Yaskil, and obviously, Holtzman himself. One of the most famous paintings of the place drawn by Gutman called “the promenade in Tiberias”.

For several years the hotel was reconstructed from its foundations, the unique rooms and porches were preserved and its now knows today as “Shirat Hayam” boutique hotel. Preserving the nature beauty of the structure, while creating a perfect harmony and well-planned integration between the old and the new, the compound provides an atmosphere of peace and tranquility in front of the scenery of the Sea of Galilee.

Shirat Hayam Boutique Hotel is located on the “Yigal Allon” promenade in the city of Tiberias, on the shores of Lake Kinneret. The Hotel is located in the heart of an open museum where sculptures are displayed of the best-known sculptures, among them Ilana Goor, Amos Yaskil, Payne and many others, and represents the renewing core of the Tabernacle of culture and Arts.
