Fodor's Expert Review Evason Ma'In Hot Springs
, Madaba, 17173, Jordan Fodor's Choice
A literal oasis in this desert country, Jordan's Ma'in retreat is far away from pretty much everything except the soothing sounds of the hot-spring waterfall out back. A renowned international spa, sustainable eco practices (among other things they purify and bottle their own water), understated-but-top-notch service, and eye-calming dark wood furnishings make a stay at this luxury property pampering for soles and souls. The public hot springs are nearby but book a treatment at the on-site spa and you get access to the private hot pool fed by its own waterfall and with its own natural cave sauna. There are several on-site dining options, including the Brown Barn and the Springs restaurant; the Panorama restaurant, on the edge of a nearby cliff is the place for sunset dining: it's a 15-minute drive from the hotel and shuttle buses leave frequently.
- wonderful Jordanian hospitality
- soothing atmosphere
- excellent food
- out of the way from Amman
- need to plan for the shuttle to the Panorama restaurant
