Queen of Sheba Eilat
Rising majestically up from the Red Sea waterfront – and fringed by the boat-cluttered Lagoona – this resort combines modern essentials with an old-world sense of place. Ancient Egyptian-style detailing adorns the lobby dome; floors are patterned with animal mosaics in a nod to King Solomon; a rambling swimming pool is lined with statues and fountains. Rooms are classic and bright, with balconies that let the warm air wash over you. As for the spa? Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna are all part of the deal.
