Ritz-Carlton Makes Its Way to Israel
New luxury accommodations to open on Mediterranean waterfront From Boston to Paris to London, the New York mainstay, The Ritz-Carlton, keeps expanding outward and moving forward. The company, whose establishments in Battery Park and Central Park seem to be monuments, will look to Israel for its latest endeavor. Next month they'll be opening The Residences at the Ritz-Carlton, Herzliya, their "first-ever Kosher luxury residences." The first in Israel, The Residences is Ritz-Carlton's 77th establishment worldwide. The Ritz-Carlton currently has hotels in 25 different countries, as west as the U.S. and as east as Japan. Designed by Rani Ziss, the famous architect whose resume includes spearheading the renovations of New York's Plaza Hotel, and New York-based Studio Gaia, who in the past designed the interior of the W hotels in Seoul and Mexico City, The Residences, styled after a "luxury marina lifestyle," has its own marina and is on the Mediterranean waterfront in the opulent city of Herzliya. The city is also the center of Israel's own "Silicon Valley," Silicon Wadi. The Residences, though, are not your normal hotel. The 12-story central building is a five-star hotel on its bottom six floors, but on the upper six floors are 82 vacation condominiums. "Residents," or owners of properties in the top half of the building, are allowed 180 days per year in their respective room, and, of course, have access to the Ritz-Carlton's roof-top pool, fitness center, and restaurant. Properties range in price from $1.3 million for one-bedrooms to $15 million for penthouses. To learn more about The Residences [click here. ](http://www.rcr-herzliya.com)
