Harmony and history in Jordan’s unique Dead Sea region
The Dead Sea is one of the world’s great natural phenomena. You can spend a few days here during a visit to Jordan and take the chance to experience this unique body of water – enjoy its legendary healing powers and reach a point of total relaxation.
The Dead Sea is actually 422 metres below sea level and nearly nine times as salty as the ocean, which means you float effortlessly in the saline water – a unique sensation. Once you’re completely relaxed from your soak in the sea, why not try a Dead Sea mud treatment? It’s said to have rejuvenating powers that will leave you feeling like you’ve been born again.
This area is dotted with world-class health spas that make the most of the unique natural conditions, but there is more to a holiday in the Dead Sea region than just the water. Visit ancient sites such as Mount Nebo and discover the historic side of Jordan at Madaba and Jerash. Evason Ma’in is home to natural hot waterfalls. It’s the place to try spa treatments and we’ve also hand-picked the excellent Kempinski Ishtar and Movenpick resorts as stand-out places to stay.
