The Dead Sea is dying. It's sad but true. The sea is now a lake, and the constant siphoning of the Jordan River for agriculture has left the shoreline a mile or more away from this resort and what used to be the coastal road. Coming back here after 25 years away made me profoundly sad about our environmental values.... More

We went to the Ein Gedi Spa during our trip to Israel and had a great time there. The spa itself was nothing amazing but that wasn't really what we came for. What we really came for was to go to the Dead Sea. The experience of floating in the Dead Sea was amazing, and then to come back and... More

We wanted to show the kids the Dead Sea and let them experience the feeling of stepping into boiling hot salt solutions once. Nowadays there is no nort (or northern) public beach at the Dead Sea anymore, so you have to use one of the paid ones. As I was here as a child myself, we went here. The place... More

This spa is marketed like its luxury but it's far from it! I don't think I would go there again. The food in the restaurant is the worst food I have ever had. Cheap cheap cheap! Pay a little extra and go to one of the hotels in Ein Bokek which is where hotels are about 20 minutes in the... More

I've been in the Dead Sea over a dozen times, and love what the water does for my skin. Doing a mud treatment is part of my routine, and while at several others getting mud is difficult here it isn't. The sea, however, gets farther each year from the buildings as the shoreline is receding g, so a tram is... More

We came to the Sea of Spa in Ein Gedi because we were told it was a great way to access the Dead Sea if you are not staying in a resort nor going to Jordan. We bought a package that included the buffet lunch, towels, lockers, and gifts from their spa collection. We had full access to showers, changing... More

This underwhelming spot is incapable of making a once in a lifetime experience at the Dead Sea enjoyable. Overpriced for the lack of services, cleanliness is lacking in the spa, staff is less than friendly and incapable of thinking beyond mandated job functions, foot traffic is not addressed, beach accessibility is one sided and you will wait for it. Sure,... More

We stopped because we had been driving for a while and it seemed like a good choice from a distance. We proceeded to their "restaurant" which was just not showing appetizing options but we were starved so we decided to give it a try. Apart from being expensive it was horrid and sent two of my family members directly to... More
