The Dead Sea and its mud are world-famous for their rejuvenating properties. Enjoy these natural wonders for a full week, as well as your luxurious accommodations at the 5-star Movenpick resort. Stroll among lush gardens in a beautiful village setting on your way to the privately accessed northern Dead Sea beaches. You’ll also enjoy access to the Movenpick’s award-winning Zara Spa, which features a range of thermal, hydro, and mineral pools where you can relax your body and refresh your mind.
Explore first-hand Jordan’s biblical connections via several daytrips: including Mt. Nebo where Moses looked over the Promised Land, Bethany Beyond the Jordan where Jesus was baptized, and the fabulous rock-cut city of Petra, capital of the Nabataeans.
