Pleased to meet you. We are Amit and Ariella Ronat, your hosts at Yama - Suites and Wine Spa, and though we have not yet met, there are some things we wish to tell you. 😊
We launched our project in 2009, initially as the first wine spa in Israel (read the full story here…) and from the start it was the ultimate family business. The complex was designed by Ariella’s parents, Eunice and Peter, renowned Jerusalem architects; the full range of treatment options was chosen and implemented by Amit, a qualified physiotherapist; while the management details, large and small, and the ceramic vessels are Ariella’s responsibility.
What we wished to create for our guests is the experience that we personally seek out when on vacation... relaxation, indulgence, to cast off the tedium of day to day routine, and on the other hand, to immerse yourselves in the pure ambience of the place. That is the reason why we, as owners, have paid attention to the smallest details. We have personally checked how pleasant it is to pad barefoot on the deck, which herbs to pick from the garden to infuse our tea, the exact angle at which to hang the hammock to catch the cooling breeze and the panoramic heart-expanding view. Each detail, from the bedlinen to the strength of the Jacuzzi current, from the softness of the sofa to the cup of coffee, is an expression of our pleasure that you are our guests.
When you stay with us you are part of our extended family, and it is important that you enjoy your break. Attentive to your every request and query, we are happy to advise and direct you to restaurants, attractions, beaches, vineyards and all the other surprises our region offers.
Our enterprise, established in 2009 is exclusively a family business. The place is designed, managed and maintained by three family generations. Architects Eunice and Peter were the designers; we, your hosts, have built sections of the place with our own hands, and our twins contribute mainly with smiles and infectious laughter. We have created for you the perfect vacation experience of indulgence, relaxation, a break from the daily routine, spiced with the local experience of someone who lives facing the most beautiful view in Israel.
When you stay with us you are part of our extended family and as such, it is important that you enjoy your vacation. We are attentive to your every query and request.
