Occupying a restored 19th-century French hospital, The Jaffa, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Tel Aviv opened last year in that city’s historic waterfront neighborhood. Architects Ramy Gill and John Pawson collaborated on the project, which marries antiquity and modern minimalism. The Chapel lounge is set in a 19th-century sanctuary and the sleek lobby reveals a 13th-century Crusader’s wall excavated under the site. Meanwhile, the hotel’s 120 rooms and suites feature custom furniture, smart technology and stellar views. Rates from $596.
