A historic castle restored and turned into a luxurious boutique hotel, overlooking the sea of galilee

dona castle

Dona Castle boutique hotel is located up the picturesque Dona Gracia Street, along which is a succession of ancient and historic buildings, at the highest place on the ridge overlooking the Sea of Galilee.

The hotel set within a historic building in the Chulavey Citadel built in 1745 by Dahar’s son El Omar the Bedouin ruler of the Galilee.
The castle, which was restored with great sensitivity while maintaining all the original features, including restoring the stone arches, the original plaster in the rooms and maintaining the original partition, is designed to give the guest an authentic, periodic and intimate experience that combines history and hospitality with the highest standards.

THE STORY

The castle was built in 1745 by Chulaybee’s elder son Dahar to the Bedouin ruler of the Galilee. The castle was joined as part of the Ottoman wall that surrounded the city of Tiberius.

Since the Castle was acquired in 2007, it has undergone a long process of restoration and reconstruction that began with experts in restoration, engineers, the Society for the Conservation of Ancient Buildings and of course the IAA. A lot of complex work has been done that has restored most of the damages. The arches were restored in the rooms, the periodic plaster and the stone reconstructions. Outside the building is preserved as it is.
The intimate structure allows hosting groups or families for workshops/events or seminars.
