Enjoy a magical Pesach vacation with Zvi Lapian at the enchanting Hacienda Forest View Hotel in Northern Israel.
The Hacienda Forest View Hotel spreads over 17 acres of natural forest with breathtaking views of the Western Galilee. Built in the style of a Spanish estate, it includes 168 luxurious rooms and suites for couples and families. The spacious grounds includes gardens for relaxing, a spectacular spa, a large swimming pool and toddler pool, plus a gym, ball courts, mini golf and a kids club.
The Hacienda Forest View Hotel is one of three highly professionally-run C-Hotels set in rural locations around Israel, and their expert management team will be supported by Zvi Lapian’s own event management team. They also own the Neve Ilan Hotel in Central Israel.
The kashrut of the program is Rabbanut Mehadrin, with top quality, glatt kosher cuisine, using only shmura matza meal and without kitniyot, with Shmura Matza provided for the Sedarim.
Our expert food and beverage team will be working with the Hacienda chefs to provide top quality meals, with plenty of options for all the family. We will do our best to accommodate other special dietary requests – please notify us well in advance.
Included in our pricing, we provide full board with three sumptuous meals on Chag and Shabbat, plus half board on Chol Hamoed (breakfast and dinner). A delicious Seder meal in our communal dining room is included in the price, and overseas guests can request a Second Seder and Second Day Chag lunch (not included).
We provide afternoon tea with cake and refreshments on Erev Pesach and every day during Chol Hamoed. Lunch on Chol Hamoed is also available on request.
Throughout Pesach, Zvi Lapian’s expert team will provide a full program of activities for children, plus daily entertainment and evening shows for all the family. On Shabbat and Chag we will enjoy stimulating shiurim and lectures in English and Hebrew from our scholars in residence.
During Chol Hamoed, guests at the Hacienda Forest View Hotel will be well-placed to tour the many stunning sites of Northern Israel, and we will offer a program of daily tiyulim. Our guests can also use the hotel’s heated indoor swimming pool, with hours set aside for separate swimming and family swimming.
Zvi Lapian’s Pesach Programs are renowned for paying attention to every detail, particularly to the religious aspects of Pesach. We have a limited number of private rooms available for family Sedarim – available on a first-come-first-served basis.
Davening takes place in a comfortable setting for men and women, and the schedule is designed for the convenience of the guests. Zvi brings his own Mashgiach to oversee the kashrut, and we are one of the few programs in Israel that prepares ‘gebrocht’ dishes using Shmura matza meal.
We keep the atmosphere relaxed and tolerant – live and let live! We try to accommodate families with special requirements, and Zvi goes to great lengths to ensure that every guest feels relaxed and happy.
