The elegant Olive Gilboa Mountain, which was developed on the site of Mt. Gilboa’s artificial ski slope, is part of the Olive Hotel Chain’s "Exclusive” brand. Situated on the heights of Mt. Gilboa, it overlooks three valleys – Valley of the Springs, Harod Valley and Jezreel Valley.
The hotel, designed to please lovers of breathtaking landscapes, features 42 rooms, ideally suited for an amazing vacation for families with children, couples looking for a romantic interlude and friends yearning for a holiday at a prestigious, pampering hotel. As though the amazing vistas of the Valley of the Springs and Harod Valley weren’t enough, the hotel provides a unique view of the landscape to guests bathing in its luxurious swimming pool.
The concept of the Olive Gilboa Mountain was inspired by the biblical story of King Saul, his royal family and King David, who succeeded Saul to the throne. Paying homage to these Old Testament heroes, one of the hotel suites was named after King David and the other after Jonathan, one of Saul’s sons.
The hotel’s reception
desk with its welcome station, featuring homemade cold tea, water with mint, a
tea and tea infusion section and coffee and cookies, serves as a warm, intimate
meeting point for hotel guests. On wintry Friday afternoons hot soup and salep ("sakhlab”)
are available too. Friday evenings, a Happy Hour at 18:00 is held for the
pleasure of hotel guests, with snacks and unlimited wine. The hotel’s spacious dining room offers self-service breakfast featuring a wide range of dishes, and lunch for groups also can be arranged.
The hotel’s Valley Spa
compound offers treatment areas, sauna and a fitness room, so that guests will
enjoy a truly pampering experience for body and soul. In addition, the hotel features an abundance of attractions in the spirit of this concept - tours, RZR trips and an observation point overlooking the enchanting Old Testament landscape.
For people interested in
booking a special, memorable event, we can offer our King’s Garden events
compound overlooking the valley’s enchanting vistas, with a capacity of up to
2000 guests. Also available at the hotel is a room seating 40. In the near
future we will be able to offer a conference hall too, an ideal venue for holding
conferences, meetings and lectures in a refreshing, professional atmosphere.
