Easy to do as a day trip, especially from Jerusalem. Great fun to spend time in the sea, cover yourself with mud and spend more time in the sea. Didn't go in the Sulphur pools. Water is now a long way from the building so they have a shuttle to take you down there. Can take your own towels or... More

Pricy, and very dated. The facilities are a long way from the shore now and you take the tractor down to the water. Make sure you wait for the tractor for the return trip walking can cause rashes from salt.

I went with friends here and the experience was certainly unforgettable, since I've wanted to float in the Dead Sea for a while. However, the spa itself is a very simple place with overpriced food. Really, the sea is where you should be, and it is with a 5-minute tractor ride. Apart from that, I spent a great day with... More

When I went with my family, they ran out of running water when everyone was covered in mud and dirt. Like most of the people there, we wanted our money back or at least a voucher to come back. They were nasty and unsympathetic to all the people there. They kept telling us for two hours to wait because they... More

The first time I travelled to this area, we went to the Ein Gedi Spa, but I was very unimpressed (I thought it was dirty, smelly, expensive, and the staff were less than effusive or helpful), and we decided not to stay and try what it had to offer. Now, after living in Israel for several years, I travelled back... More

Great experience with a lot of fun ….!. The mad was great and after washing the skin was very soft. Two hours pass very easy and if we had more time we could send it easily.

After a long journey to the Dead Sea this is a welcome Oasis in its stark surroundings....the inside boasts heated mineral springs fed by the Dead Sea.....venture outside and you are welcomed by a nice sized pool and travellers enjoying the sun. I liked the shuttle that brings you to the Dead Sea. Try the dead sea mud packs, just... More

We stopped through here for an hour and a half during a full day Dead Sea and Masada tour. I think we were probably expecting a little more. The Dead Sea is a short tractor ride away from the complex. Once down there, you can float in the sea and go into a small bath area. I'm glad we went... More

Swimming in the Dead Sea is a must-do but it's a shame how little effort has been made to accommodate bathers at this site. Primitive showers, mud bath just a ditch, no concession of any kind. I took a quick shower at the spa without buying a locker key for my clothes. When I returned 5 minutes later the key... More

For a small fee, 100 NIS your are provided with a change room, access to picnic areas, a beautiful pool and a ride to the beach where you can float on the Dea Sea or bathe yourself in the rich mineral mud. There are also countless packages that include spa treatments and meals available.
