Dead Sea, Jordan

Dead Sea

A visit to Jordan would simply be incomplete without a stop at the lowest point on earth.

Not only is it a great novelty to float effortlessly in the saline water but the thick brown mud on the seabed will exfoliate and soften your skin in the most natural way possible.

The Dead Sea valley is typically Mediterranean with mild winters and hot summers and is a natural greenhouse rich in minerals. In ancient times it was one of the most fertile places in the Middle East and some of the world’s oldest civilisations sprang up here.

Located on the shores of the Dead Sea, Movenpick Resort & Spa has been built in the style of a traditional Arabic village with the 346 guestrooms connected by walkways, stairwells and courtyards, planted with bougainvillea and plumbago. From the main building, an artificial river runs through the valley gardens towards a central square where shops, a restaurant, pools and the spa converge on the shores of the Dead Sea. Each of the rooms has a balcony or terrace and the vast spa takes full advantage of its location in an area rich in year-round filtered sunshine, ozone-rich air, high barometric pressure and mineral-loaded sea waters.
