Still, the Best Place to Experience the Dead Sea, However...

The Ein Gedi Spa used to be owned and operated by the nearby Kibbutz of the same name. Mismanagement and debts forced the kibbutzniks out. Parallel to this, the Dead Sea is... read more

I made a trip from Jerusalem to have a dip in the Dead Sea and arrived to Ein Gedi to found that the free beach have been closed, and the next free beach was in Ein Bokek, like a half an hour drive away to the South. Luckily, I found this spa and this way I could have a nice... More

I have been going here for almost 40 years to enjoy what used to be the best hot springs because of the hot mineral water (38-39 C.) and the high concentration of healing chemicals. Most days the water is no longer hot. Three times, I left and received a refund because the water was lukewarm. The reception staff says it... More

The Ein Gedi Spa used to be owned and operated by the nearby Kibbutz of the same name. Mismanagement and debts forced the kibbutzniks out. Parallel to this, the Dead Sea is shrinking, causing the beach to recede almost a mile from the spa! You must take a shutttle (a very uncomfortable cart attached to a noisy tractor) to the... More

The hot spring indoor pool was not pleasant. Can't really say why. just felt that way. The place where the hot spring water splashes at you is much more fun, also the mud experience and of course the dead sea it self is a must to go into the salty water. However, the maintenance is poor - the mud is... More

This place used to be a gem. Now it is in a very poor condition. It is simply filthy and not cleaned properly. Showers were worst than my army service, with many broken equipment. Elevator does not function properly. Pool area is not cleaned as it should making it to put it somewhat bluntly-gross. It is a shame, as this... More

This place is a little long int eh tooth. it is not well kept. Overall feels pretty tarnished and not well taken care for. Spas are nothing special. I would choose another.

We visited the Ein Gedi Spa in November 2015 for 1 day and mainly spend our time at the Dead Sea and the beach. The beach is clean, even though we missed some sunloungers - they have just some plastic chairs available. The entrance fee per person is 95 NIS (for non hotel guests), you can use the pools and...

The warm water pools are the main attraction in this complex. You can find sea shores for free, swimming pools and massage at hotels nearby. But when i entered the pools area it reminded me my work, and I work in a steel plant... The noise there was so loud, instead of silence to help me relax, I couldnt stay... More

Came here on a group tour. Upon entering here there is a very expensive gift shop. Towels are 15 shekhels and you can keep the towel. Lockers are also 15 shekhels to rent. Outside a bus (free) takes you to the Dead Sea. The bus only runs on the half hour. At the Dead Sea stop you need to walk... More
