Leisure and Wellness

Relax and enjoy

[T]here’s a lot that Jordan does well and providing total relaxation is one of those things. As a country it is in a perfect position to accommodate the increasing worldwide popularity of the spa vacation which many people are now choosing as part of a healthier lifestyle.

[A]t 410m below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth and Jordan’s Dead Sea coast is one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world. The main attraction of the Dead Sea is the soothing, salty water itself. The salt content of the water is 31.5% making the water so buoyant that it is impossible for the visitor to sink. The water also contains 21 minerals including high levels of magnesium, sodium, potassium, and bromine and 12 of these minerals are found in no other body of water in the world. The combination of the Dead Sea water and the rich black mud found along the shoreline, have been shown to have significant health benefits.

[J]ordan has complemented its natural therapeutic sites with first class resorts offering an excellent range of amenities, where visitors are given a unique and relaxing experience catering to all of their health and fitness and beauty needs. A large amount of investment in infrastructure in the area has provided the Dead Sea with new roads making the luxurious 5 star hotels like the Movenpick Hotel and Resort, the Jordan Valley Marriott, the Kempinski Ishtar Hotel, and the 4 star Dead Sea Spa Hotel all easily accessible.

[M]any visitors to the Dead Sea also take advantage of the nearby wonder, Ma’in Hot Springs. Popular with both locals and tourists, the springs are located 264m below sea level in one of the most breathtaking desert oases in the world. Thousands of visiting bathers come each year to enjoy the mineral-rich waters of these hyper-thermal waterfalls, where the water is heated to temperatures of up to 63° Celsius by underground lava fissures as it makes its way through the valley.
