This classy hotel is a first choice for families in the beachfront resort of Ein Bokek.
Just a few minutes' walk from a private beach, this stylish resort is a popular choice for families visiting the Dead Sea. Cosy, homely and full of modern comforts, there are plenty of peaceful spots to relax in, and even a library in the lobby if all you want is a quiet read. Both contemporary and unpretentious, the outdoor pool is an oasis of serenity with its palm trees, sun loungers and indulgent double day beds. The kids' facilities are stand out; children will love the Kidos Club, where activities include a puppet theatre, children’s pool and a cosy multimedia room fitted with PlayStations and Wii consoles. At the other end of the scale, adults will appreciate some soothing downtime in the hotel's all-natural Esprit Spa.
When it comes to rooms, generous floor-to-ceiling windows overlook great views of the Dead Sea or the misty Moav Mountains. Standard Rooms are cosy retreats while Deluxe Rooms are more spacious, and include an elegant interior with a comfortable sitting area and modern en suite. Family Garden Rooms have been superbly designed with families in mind, and include a generous second bedroom complete with two single beds and a flat-screen TV.
Whether you’re craving Mediterranean and Moroccan or Asian and Italian, there’s nothing quite like the variety of food styles available at the Dining Room, the hotel’s main buffet restaurant. For refreshments, lap up the casual vibes and drinks at the lobby bar, while in the summer months take full advantage of the fresh fruit shakes and salads at the open-air Chill Out Pool Bar.
