We got Arugot room. The view is amazing. Magnificent dessert with the dead sea in the backgound. THe inside surrounding include impresive botanic garden and the whole interior location is full with all kinds of plants (you can forget for a moment that this is the dessert).
Few animals around like capras and unique bird. The SPA include mineral water pool as well as regular one. THe guests can use the excellent half olymic swimming pool as well. THe SPA decoration is beautifull and the treatment was excellent and professional.
A ticket to the regular Ein Gedi shore is available free for the guests as well.
Food was excellent with a lot of choices.

Room Tip: Arugot Rooms - possibly second floor is better

We have been coming to this resort for years and years now. This year we were extremely disappointment.

The staff was very rude; it felt as if they see a person as an ATM and not more. Everything costs money; the famous mud from the Dead Sea was 100% diluted and very low quality.
In the years before the mud was always black and you could feel its benefits. Now the mud was grainy and was more gray then black. Our friends that came with us just came back from the other side of the Dead Sea in Jordan and they noticed the poor quality of the mud straight away.

The biggest problem was in the mineral bath area. There aren’t any comfy chairs; the towels cost a lot of money and the staff was extremely rude! The way to the lockers is through the gift shop, that’s another way to make you spend more money in a rather common way I must say.

The main reason to arrive to the Dead Sea is to enjoy and relax in the mineral bath area and it was a huge disappointment!

The rooms were ok, the food was very good but the staff and the mineral bath area were very poor.

There is a new spa but it costs 50 NIS just to get in.

Overall it was a disappointment!

the botanical gardens, lovely. Synergic modern spa, hammam and sauna very good.
close to all important places like Qumran, Ein Gedi and Masada and of course the Dead Sea. Delicious varied food. In the kibbutz, you can always pick up an extra bottle of wine or fruit etc. In short, you will soon feel at home. This is recommended even parents with children.

If you are searching for the calm and peace moments visit this place,
Good spa and good service.
The area is full of flowers and trees
Nice view to the dead sea and to the mountains.
The spa has a salt pool, sauna and turkish hammam. I liked the place and the good massage.

Great stay, too bad it was for only one night. We stayed in a 2 room suite on a grassy courtyard, around the corner from the new onsite spa. The lodgings were clean, well-maintained, and well-appointed. We had dinner and breakfast onsite - both very good in terms of quality and quantity. The new spa with the Dead Sea pool was great, along with the sauna and Turkish bath. All in all, a great stay and we will definitely return there again.

Room Tip: Worth upgrading to luxury suites if available... try to get rooms close to new onsite spa.

Had this place cost one third of what we had to pay I would probably have written a much more favorable review. But as it is the place is very expensive and very disappointing.
It is a large rambling place much too crowded and rundown. There are hardly any signs to guide you to your room or to the spa and as for help from the stuff - forget it. Our room was newly refurbished, but everything was of the lowest quality you could get away with. Walls are paper thin and you get noise both from the outside and from adjoining rooms. Worst of all, the Hotel is in one of the most scenic spots in Israel but the rooms are totally cut off from the scenery. Internet is free but very unstable. The food is pure junk and the dining room ugly and unpleasant. There are some redeeming spots. The vegetation is nice and the new spa is not bad. But these are minor compensations. Being almost the only hotel for many miles, the members of Ein Gedi kibutz must have thought they have a hen laying golden eggs in their possession. A great pity.

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.
