What a green, spectacular perch from which to view the Dead Sea and the mountains. The only other alternative in the area is the high-rise resort hotels south of Masada, which are utterly unappealing to me. We stayed in the Desert Rooms, which are free-standing four unit buildings, all with stone patio entries. There isn't much view from the inside of the smallish rooms, but outside is where you'll want to be anyway. The beds are quite comfortable, and the shower has great water pressure. The dining area is a longish walk on the other side of the compound, buffet style for breakfast and dinner, but of excellent quality. The staff and service is typical Israeli (gruff), so never mind that, the location is what matters. The forest and landscaping is stunning, and such a contrast to the desert surrounding it. My other family members took the Ayurvedic massage which is offered on site (rather than to the mud and spa place which is several miles away), the woman who does it is apparently quite renowned, and Europeans come to the resort just to be treated by her. Beware, you will get about a gallon of warm oil poured onto your forehead and into your hair.
