Often seen as the younger, more irresponsible brother of the chain, the Dan Panorama has recently developed its own, mature personality as a viable option for leisure and business minded travellers. Dominating the beachfront landscape of Southern Tel Aviv, the hotel offers magnificent vistas of the Mediterranean, ancient Jaffa port, and the picturesque Neve Tzedek neighbourhood. The property is a few minutes’ walk from Alma beach, and is complemented by the recently opened Hatachana culture and shopping complex. Claiming to be a true four-star hotel, the Dan Panorama offers an array of services and amenities for those attempting to blend work with pleasure. Gatherings of most sizes and requirements are accommodated for conferences and conventions. The business lounge is simple yet efficient and caters towards smaller, more informal gatherings. While, fully staffed and limited to those over the age of 18, the lounge is an asset for those in need of a ‘business break’. As with most hotels in the city, the breakfast buffet features an eclectic mix of cheeses and salads, as well as a la carte hot dishes and fresh juices. The pool and spa facilities are top rate too but the highlight of this property is its location. Nearby Neve Tzedek and Jaffa are not to be missed. And the nearby beach is a local favourite as it’s often empty of the tourist hordes.
