Where are you searching? There are whole other threads about the process and details but if you don’t have an ANA account, open one and search “mixed fare classes” (so that if the flight TLV-IsT is economy it will still show up) and they show all the Star alliance options.

Is the OWB option in the Conrad still available for the discounted 95k a night or is that way over?

Got it. I guess for the dates I want it's already sold out.

Just wondering if anyone can chime in here, seems like from 1 or 2 people that the PH isn't nearly as nice as it looks or sounds. I'm planning a trip there in 2 weeks for 4 nights, is there any reason to consider booking Conrad instead? I'm looking mainly for a peaceful secluded hotel, but obviously really nice one too.

Phew! Were they as accommodating with kosher food as people claim the Conrad is?

Only real PH negative, and it is a big one IMHO, is the lack of a pool on the OWB.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

True point about lack of pool but honestly planning on staying in the park pool villa, so I guess for me that's not a negative.

I don't think I'll ever understand traveling for 24 hours and spending thousands of dollars for anything but an OWB in BOB or MLE.

I hear u.

I do think though that every person traveling there has their own agenda and different things talk to different people. For me personally, I'm looking to go with my spouse to the most peaceful and relaxing place, as private as possible, not necessarily the most luxurious rather more the other things like seclusion (in paradise!).. different strokes for different folks ;)
