The location - Western Galilee

Nahariya is a small beach town. In 1934, it was established by German immigrants who wanted to do agriculture, but failed, but the lovely location by the beach and Western Galilee has turned Nahariya to tourist attraction. The city has a nice promenade and beach, a diving school, and plenty of bars and restaurants.  It is a starting point for trips in the area, including Rosh Hanikra, the Acre Bahai Gardens, Akre, and the Western Galilee mountains. The hotel offers spa treatments, they have excellent massagists!
