In Europe, Easter sunshine can be a bit temperamental, but the ancient city of Jaffa, on the outskirts of Tel Aviv, is as renowned for its orange blossom as its biblical associations. Here, the high-style W Hotels chain has just launched a set of branded residences (www.wresidences.com; from $1.2m), its first in Israel. Located in a newly constructed wing next to the 19th-century French Hospital and due for completion next year, the 38 luxury apartments, co-designed by master of minimalism John Pawson, combine the best of the old (vaulted ceilings, stained-glass windows) with W’s ultra-chic contemporary approach. Owners will be able to enjoy floor-to-ceiling views of the Mediterranean and the picturesque streets of Jaffa’s artists’ colony, as well as all the services offered by the adjoining W Hotel.
