Discover a world of relaxation, rejuvenation and beauty bliss at these fabulous Tel Aviv spas
Treatments & facilities: Though not a luxury spa complex, a visit to Ein Gedi – just 90 minutes from Tel Aviv – presents unrivalled opportunities for pampering, as well as cultural and natural wonders, which only the Middle East can offer.
An ancient oasis in the Judean desert, mentioned in the Old Testament, Ein Gedi is replete with nourishing black mud and hot sulphur springs. Positioned on the shores of the salt-rich Dead Sea, it is a natural desert spa offering health benefits that have been known and enjoyed for thousands of years. These unique rejuvenation experiences are complemented by a hotel and small spa center, available to hotel guests, where massages, wraps and aromatherapy are offered. However, the real joy of Ein Gedi is the chance to enjoy the skin-nourishing mud and hot mineral water under a sun that takes so long to reach the Dead Sea – which is the lowest point on earth – that sunburn is rarely heard of. After you have enjoyed the natural spa riches of Ein Gedi there is still more to enjoy as it is home to the ruins of a prehistoric temple, an ancient village and a stunning botanical garden. Here you will find many unique plants and trees, including the biblical frankincense and myrrh.
