Relaxation and Well-Being by the Dead Sea


For those twho love to kick back, the Dead Sea provides ultimate leisure and natural beauty. Known for its rich mineral content and prized for its many health benefits, the Dead Sea is not only one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, but also a place of relaxation and comfort. Multiple 5- and 4-star hotels line the Jordanian portion of the sea, each offering a variety of spa treatments. Ever wondered at the rejuvenating powers of a salt bath and detoxifying treatment? Find out yourself at one of the many resorts. After spending a couple days floating in the sea, laying out by the pool, or staying fit at the hotels’ tennis courts and fitness centers, couples can mingle with locals at the nearby Hammamat Ma’in (Ma’in Hot Springs), the gorgeous mineral-rich waters that feed the hundred-plus hot springs in the Jordanian Valley.


Coast Through Wadi Rum
