Every few months there comes that time when the need for a stress reliever starts tingling. It usually takes a good while from the time I first get restless to the moment I realize it’s time to chillax and unwind, but when I finally do, the one and only solution is loud and clear: Vacation it is.
This time we decided to get ahead of things, and booked our vacation at Mizpe Hayamim months in advance, while we were still giddy from our trip to France.
The plan: traditional R&R time, white robes, and endless hot tub hours. The real deal: all of the above plus the 4:00 PM cake.
Located just between Zefat and Rosh Pina and mostly known be its organic farm and green agenda, Spa Hotel Mizpe Hayamim has a great reputation and I heard quite a bit about it even before my traveling days.
The major pluses of Mizpe Hayamim are easy to spot: The organic farm and the hotel are located on a marvelous piece of land and the classic view of north Israel is one I have a soft spot for. If you’re used to the city’s hustle and bustle, this serene, peaceful place will for sure be refreshing.
The vegetarian menu was one more positive for me personally. For an additional charge you can also upgrade your meal and have yourself a fab dinner at Muscat restaurant just next to the hotel and by all means you should try this option at least once during your stay. I ate the most legendary risotto there.
The overall experience was great for us and this was for sure a fun, well needed vacation. I do think though, I would be much more appreciative of it in 20 years and four kids down the road. I can’t recommend any of the spa treatments since I didn’t try any, but to the best of my knowledge, word down the street is that the good reputation is well earned, so I’ll just leave you with that.
Loving this view of the north. The perfect way to welcome spring.

All green everywhere.
We sure made the most of this relaxing time. Good food (Do yourself a favor and be sure to check out Muscat), Goodnight sleep.
And most important: Endless hot tub hours.
