Tel Aviv, a city known for its grand beachside hotels, is now debuting a much cozier alternative with a hotel suite built inside a lifeguard tower.
The tiny hotel, located on Frishman Beach, fits just one person or a couple. At about 11 feet at its widest, the hotel is two stories tall with a living room upstairs, a bedroom downstairs, a small porch and a full bathroom. It has working electricity and running water and a killer view.
Unfortunately, the hotel suite can’t be rented by the general public. A project of the Tel Aviv municipality and the Ministry of Tourism, the hotel was built to promote tourism to Israel’s White City.
The only guests will be the winners of an international competition run by the Tourism Ministry in conjunction with hotels.com as well as other pre-selected guests.
