The Dead Sea region is full of life and has generated a feeling of well being amongst tens of thousands of tourists and health spa enthusiasts from around the world, who have visited the Dead Sea over the past several decades.
It’s in the mineral-rich Dead Sea water, 400 meters below sea level. It’s in the health-giving and mineral-laden thermal springs. It’s in the famous therapeutic black mud. It’s in the sun’s rays. It’s in the very air you breathe. And, along with all the health-enhancing properties, the region is filled with opportunities for adventure, exploration, touring and luxurious relaxation.
The water of the Dead Sea contains 21 minerals including magnesium, calcium, bromide and potassium. 12 of these are found in no other sea or ocean and some are recognised for imparting a relaxed feeling, nourishing the skin, activating the circulatory system and for easing rheumatic discomfort and metabolic disorders. As an example, the Dead Sea contains 10 times more salts and minerals than the Mediterranean Sea. The high salt and mineral concentration enables everyone to float in its waters but doesn’t allow the proliferation of fish and other marine life.
The array of hotels around the Dead Sea all offer bars ranging from relaxed wine bars to sophisticated and trendy hotspots many with fantastic views over the Dead Sea at sunset. Relax over drinks in the Lot Hotel bar and view the sunset as it transforms the mountains into a kaleidoscope of brilliant colour.
