In the shimmering turquoise waters, the reflection of the majestic mountains of the Dead Sea has attracted visitors for centuries. Whether you need to indulge in the pampering of world class spas or relax and soak in the rays of the warming sun, you will find it all in the many available Dead Sea hotels.
One of the finest hotels is the rejuvenated Royal Rimonim Dead Sea Hotel: spectacular, elegant, and sleek and there is possibly no better way to enjoy the region.
As the sun rises on the sun bleached desert mountains of Israel, the Dead Sea’s sparkling turquoise waters come alive with tourists. This is the lowest point on the face of the earth and it has a historic mystique about it that is hard to forget.
Today Dead Sea hotels offer guests an opportunity to bathe in its healing waters and reap the restorative health benefits sought after by so many. One of the Dead Sea’s best hotels, the Kibbutz Ein Gedi Resort Hotel is found on top of a hill with a dazzling view of the Dead Sea.
The Dead Sea is famous for its minimalistic beauty and therapeutic waters and at the lowest point on the earth it possesses some amazingly unique properties. Those interested in its healing therapies but traveling on a budget will enjoy their stay at the Masada Dead Sea Hostel. Perfect for those touring Israel and trying to pack in as much fun as possible.
The Masada Guest House and Youth Hostel is just as unique as it surroundings, with each room featuring its own private bathroom, television, and mini-fridge. Very simple but up to date décor with fresh open spaces and terraces allowing you to enjoy the expansive desert and turquoise sparkling jewel, the Dead Sea.
Nestled in between the borders of the Jordan and Israel desert, sits the legendary Dead Sea. Known for its therapeutic density of minerals and salt, the Dead Sea has a historic reputation as a restorative resort since the days of King Herod and David.
Many people however fail to realize the multitude of world class spas housed in the Dead Sea hotels today. The Isrotel Dead Sea Hotel and Spa is an oasis in this salt laden desert area. With mineral mud baths and very professional spa treatments, this hotel places an emphasis on indulging you with relaxation and hospitality. It’s no surprise that it regularly features in the Top 5 hotels in the Dead Sea chart.
For centuries people have flocked to the Dead Sea in search of the healing and curative properties of its heavily salted waters. An ever-growing range of Dead Sea hotels have sought to serve the increasing number of tourists in search of restoration and increased vigor, not least the popular Lot Spa Hotel.
The Lot Spa Hotel, recently ranked as the best hotel in the Dead Sea according to travel website Trip Advisor, is one of the few Dead Sea hotels that has a private beach. There’s easy access to the gazebo shaded peninsula beach that gives the opportunity to float in the midst of the sea at leisure.
The Royal Rimonim’s recent relaunch party in March saw FashionTV tag along and create this video…which will give you a great idea of what a holiday in the Dead Sea, and at one of the best Dead Sea hotels, is all about. There’s a lot of Israeli celebs, lots of massages, and lots of beautiful Israeli models, not a bad thing we say!
And after seeing their great relaunch party, it’s no surprise to see the Royal Rimonim ranked as one of the Top 5 Dead Sea hotels. Worth a visit we think..
The Daniel Dead Sea Hotel is situated at Ein Bokek, the main hotel strip in the Dead Sea. The Daniel is located right on the shore of the Dead Sea, its superb location allowing guests to take advantage of everything the remarkable Dead Sea has to offer, from its therapeutic waters to its magnificent desert views. Moreover, the Hotel offers proximity to historic sites such as Masada, Qumran, Ein Gedi and many more.
The Hotel has 302 cozy and comfortable rooms, 12 luxurious suites, and rooms customized for disabled guests. All rooms offer breathtaking views of the Dead Sea, the desert and the mountains.
