The days until the 2018 FIL World Lacrosse Championships are counting closer to zero, and with the excitement comes more organizations eager to get involved.
Tamares Hotels is the latest to partner with the tournament and enter the world of international lacrosse. The West Lagoon Resort by Tamares, located seaside in the Israeli beach city of Netanya, has been named the Official HQ Hotel of the World Championships.
“We are very proud to be the primary hub of the World Lacrosse Championships,” said Anat Starik-Dahan, Vice President of Marketing and Commercial at Tamares hotels & Chairman of the Marketing Committee of the Israel Hotel Association. “The hotel will be full of the delegations and answer all the needs of the athletes and officials.”

The West Lagoon Resort is well equipped to serve as host for FIL officials, tournament VIPs and several national teams. The hotel’s 15 stories and 272 suites and rooms all fitted with sea-view balconies will allow tired athletes and other world travelers with a spacious and comfortable home, allowing visitors a resort vacation to contrast the championships’ intense competition.
Outside of the suites, the resort boasts a world-class spa treatment at the West & Spa and an impeccably placed pool that provides an elevated view of southern Netanya’s renowned beaches, perfect for recovering from a long day on the field.
“The slogan of the hotel is, ‘Sea for Yourself,’” Starik-Dahan explained. “Even though the athletes, coaches and officials will be busy all day with the games, at night when they come back, they can sit on their balconies and relax with the view and beautiful breeze.”
The resort will also host the FIL General Assembly July 9th-10th with delegates from most of the FIL’s 60 members days before the historic championships’ first faceoff.
Tamares has chosen to partner with the World Championships because of its commitment to showing Israel to the world and the belief in the power of sport.
“We welcome these kinds of sporting events to Israel,” Starik-Dahan said. “We think there is great exposure for Israel in sports, food, music and many other subjects that bring individuals together. Sports connect people. We’d like to start a tradition of sports bringing people to Israel and to our hotels in Israel.”
With mere weeks left before the 13th edition of the World Lacrosse Championships, the FIL and those organizing the tournament are thrilled to bring Tamares Hotels aboard.
“Tamares Hotels is a perfect partner for this historic event,” said David Lasday, COO of Israel Lacrosse. “As the official hotels of the World Championships, they will provide teams and fans from around the world special memories and a great experience they can take home with them.”
