We all deserve a break from our hectic work life to rejuvenate our mind and pamper our soul and body. Jordan is blessed with some natural therapeutic sites with luxury resorts which offer a diverse range of amenities.
These luxury resorts aim at providing its visitors a unique and relaxing experience catering to all of their health and fitness and beauty needs.
Dead Sea is the world’s largest natural spa. Its facilities like Dead Sea mud bath and a relaxing experience at private beach of the luxury resorts are worth an experience.
At 410m below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth. Jordan’s Dead Sea coast is one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world, and it remains as enticing to international visitors today as it was to kings, emperors, traders, and prophets in antiquity.
A large amount of investment in the area has provided the Dead Sea with new roads making the new and 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 easily accessible.
The main attraction of the Dead Sea is the soothing abnormally 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.
Studies have shown the combination of the Dead Sea water and the rich black mud found along the shoreline to have significant health benefits including increasing circulation, easing discomfort from arthritis, healing allergies, and revitalizing skin.
A trip to the Dead Sea would not be complete without a visit to one of the first class health spa facilities of the luxury hotels. Here the visitor can enjoy year-round a massage, Dead Sea mud bath, use the excellent fitness facilities, or just spend the day relaxing on their beautiful private beaches.
The Dead Sea region is blessed with ozone and oxygen rich air, low pollution, year round bright skies with UV filtered sunlight, and perhaps most famously, its mineral rich water and sea mud. Indeed there are few places on earth that are as naturally therapeutic or so conducive to spa wellness journeys, and spa treatments at the Dead Sea capture unparalleled wealth in extraordinary journeys.
Here are the unprecedented treatments offered at the spas at the Dead Sea:
1. Dead Sea hammam ritual
This indulgent ritual cleanses, refreshes, polishes and replenishes the entire body using nutrient rich ingredients from the Dead Sea, and concludes with an application of silky moisturizer.
