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.

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.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

Having travelled to different parts of the world over the years it never ceases to amaze me how you constantly learn and evolve from the adventures you experience. I adore working in an environment where I can share my passion for the world and discuss fascinating stories both from my experiences and that of our clients. In the past year I’ve delved into the wintery beauty of St Petersburg, trekked through the colourful desert in Jordan and sailed down the iconic Nile in Egypt.
