Immaculate interiors and a striking desert backdrop combine with a natural spa at this Dead Sea resort.
One of the most luxurious hotels to be found on the shores of the Dead Sea, this elegant resort sits in a relatively secluded spot in the town of Ein Bokek. From an inviting laid-back vibe to the chic and stylish décor, it's an idyllic and calming lakeside escape with its glorious outdoor pool, landscaped gardens and a private beach that's just steps away. The hotel includes a superb all-natural spa, where body and beauty treatments make great use of the surrounding waters and mineral-rich mud. Overlooking glorious lake views, relax with a signature mud or seaweed wrap, relieve stress with a warming patchouli peel or choose an all-over body massage that refreshes from head to toe.
Start your day with a delicious breakfast spread at the hotel’s main restaurant Zer Hazahav. In the evening, this setting transforms into a multicultural food heaven, where a fantastic variety of flavours and food styles cater to each and every palate. There's also a great selection of Israeli and Arabic dishes available if you're keen to experience the local fare. For a change of scenery, the Ranch House Restaurant promises an American-style evening of grilled Nebraskan meats and decadent sweet-toothed desserts.
The rooms at the hotel are both comfortable and contemporary in design, with large double beds and generous en suites with a bathtub. Standard Rooms look over views of the Dead Sea, while the Suites are more spacious, with a living room and two balconies furnished with sun loungers and a private Jacuzzi.
