“Superb Hotel - Fantastic Spa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stayed in one of the luxury Arugot rooms, overlooking Wadi Arugot. the room was immaculate, the bathroom big enough to have a party.
the view from the balcony was fantastic from the mountains to the Ibax who roamed the hill in the morning.
we had Dinner & Breakfast at the dining room - where the huge quantity and selection of the buffet style dining reached the verge or ridicules.
the first rate spa in the resort is free for guests and includes warm salt pool, sauna, Turkish hammam , as well as heated outdoor pool, loungers etc..
we paid for treatments which were very good value for money.
the resort and its amazing botanical gardens which are all around you is highly recommended.

I have nothing negative to say after my stay at Ein Gedi Resort Hotel. I wish I could have stayed there longer. The atmosphere, location, food and service were top-notch. The rooms were fine. There's a spa in the resort and another down by the Dead Sea. There are lots of other amenities and attractions, and a lovely relaxing mood.

The new spa at the hotel is very nice and quiet. There is a great view to the dead sea.
everything is green in the kibotz.
We had a very relaxing swedish massage.
Clean facilities and friendly staff, perfect escape for a day excursion.

From the entrance to the rooms this was more like a kibbutz guest house than a hotel. The rooms were very basic. The worst thing was the cats strolling around everywhere. Also I had gone for a retreat to relax and all weekend there was a psychiatrist or neurologist conference and the whole entrance hall, the only public area to sit in, was taken over by their posters for medication!

Room Tip: Apparently there are some new rooms which are better

This hotel is located in an oasis by the Dead Sea. The surrounding botanical gardens are a treasure trove of exotic plants including extensive range of succulents as well as baobab trees.
We were upgraded from an older "garden" room to a newer "arugot" room due to a problem with rain leaking in. The newer room was very comfortable and well equipped, with a spacious bathroom, with adequate towels and nice bathrobes. Staff were helpful and pleasant. Because of a severe winter storm we could not leave when scheduled which was not a problem with the hotel

In spite of what is written in other recent reviews the food in the dining room (buffet style) is excellent. There is a wide range of fresh and tasty salads, excellent breads, eggs, baked goods, cheese etc for breakfast. With dinner there is a good choice of meats, fish, etc. The meals where one of the highlights of the stay. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area with hikes to Nachal David and Nachal Arugot, as well as Massada (all weather permitting).

This was our second stay at Ein Gedi Kibbutz hotel and wold be happy to stay there again on a future trip to Israel.

The rooms are very comfortable, in a utilitarian sort of way. The food in the dining hall was excellent. There was a musical performance on the bar patio on the night we were there.

You get a pass to use some of the facilities at the Ein Gedi spa on the Dead Sea. It is very commercial. Check in was easy. They say they offer use of their laundry facilities. What they don't tell you is that there is no dryer, only a washing machine. There is a tiny clothesline outside the door to your room - about big enough for 3 bathing suits -. That is where you are supposed to dry your clothes. Unless you are staying for a while, don't count on them being dry when you are ready to leave. The grounds are beautiful, lush and green, and the air smells sweet. It is about a 10 minute drive to Masada.

Check out took longer than it should have. The management needs to learn how to handle guests with problems. Both lines were held up for nearly half an hour by guests trying to sort out problems of their own making. It would make sense to have someone take these folks aside and help them, allowing everyone else to go on their way.

Room Tip: Its a long walk to the dining hall from the rooms around the lobby and bar, and if there is a musica...

The location is beautiful. We stayed (couple) at the newly built guest rooms in the "arugot wing". Rooms are very nice but also expensive. The major issue of this place is that there is no decent food. You may get a good healthy spa treatment...but the food is quite the opposite. The buffet serving suffers from a rare combination- lack of basic understanding how to treat food and what looks like recycling of products. Not fit for consumption. The cafe at the lobby is even worse, but with a spin - a very armature level of service. NO other place around to have a decent lunch or dinner...so consider using this as a jump start for you long awaited diet. Seriously, it is difficult to understand why such a special place in such a unique location does not make the relatively easy effort to improve this.

Room Tip: if you come to Ein Gedi, it is not for the rooms. It is in order to travel in the nature around it.
