At a very different end of the Med is the new Efendi Hotel (www.efendi-hotel.com; from about £228), overlooking blue waters in the 3,000-year-old crusader port city of Acre in northern Israel. A decade of work has seen two adjoining 19th-century Ottoman palaces renovated to create this light-soaked, 13-room luxury boutique hotel with a world-class restaurant from owner Uri Jeremias – the name behind the city’s (if not the country’s) greatest seafood eatery, Uri Buri.
