One of the world's most amazing natural wonders, the Dead Sea lies more than 400m below sea level, making it the lowest point on the face of the earth. Surrounding streams and rivers, including the River Jordan, pool into the land-locked Dead Sea, and through evaporation the waters are a dense, rich, blend of salts and minerals that supply industry, agriculture and medicine with some of its finest products. Pride of place goes to the incredible experience of floating in the Dead Sea; it is impossible to sink due to the buoyancy of the water.


The King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center, located at the lowest point on earth, is Jordan’s largest convention center with 27 halls, lounges and outdoor terraces. It is world-renowned for hosting regional and international conferences and special events. The Dead Sea area is well known for its upscale hotels, which provide top service and modern business amenities.

The Dead Sea is also known to treat conditions such as arthritis, circulatory problems, hypertension and Parkinson’s Disease.


Floating in the Dead Sea

The ultimate relaxation of body and mind. The high salinity of the Dead Sea is inhospitable to living creatures, hence its name. It is also the reason why you cannot sink in this sea.

Hammamat Zarqa Ma'in Hot Springs

Luxuriate in the hot thermal springs at Hammamat Zarqa Ma’in and Al-Himma and take time out to visit some of the area’s historic places. Not far from the hot springs lie two sites linked by tradition to Herod the Great. One is the remains of a palace at Mukawir (Machaerus), where Salome danced for the king and where John the Baptist was beheaded. King Herod was said to have bathed in the medicinal waters of the springs and people have come here for thermal treatments, or simply to enjoy a hot soak, since the days of Rome.
