Movenpick Dead Sea

I just returned from a few days at the Movenpick Dead Sea spa and I thought I'd post a few comments.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Movenpick. There are several types of rooms from the main building, the "village" and the new "Wadi Rum" complex that contains beach rooms and suites with views of the Dead Sea. I spent the first night in one of the suites in the Village. The accomodations here are more traditional and full of character. The village location is more convenient to the main building as well as the group of restaurants in the "Village" and the Souk shop.

However, I preferred my following nights spent in a beach room in the Wadi Rum complex. These rooms are far from the main builiding, but the closest accomodations to the Dead Sea. The rooms are sleek and modern and mine had a large private terrace overlooking the Dead Sea with an outdoor seating area and two lounge chairs for sun bathing. There are two smaller pools in the Wadi Rum complex with a smaller amount of guests than the main pool.

There is a small incline elevator that takes you from the complex to the top- closer to the main pool and spa, but still far from the main building. If you have difficulties with mobility, I would not recommend staying in this complex, otherwise, I highly recommend it to get it away from it all.

The Dead Sea itself is an amazing experience and to float in the quiet, early in the morning is an experience I soon won't forget.

The Zara Spa, also on site, is noted to be one of the best in the Middle East and it did not disappoint. The number of guests using the spa is limited, outdoor daybeds are available, and there is a large outdoor hydrotherapy (thalassotherapy) pool with a full circuit included in the day rate or free if you have an appt booked. There are also two other "Dead Sea" pools and a Kneip foot bath pool inside. The outdoor pool is very relaxing and away from the commotion of the main pools. If visiting on a Friday - reserve well in advance for one of the Spa daybeds to get away from the weekenders.
