Situated right at the Dead Sea, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea is one of the top beach resorts in this area. This luxurious five star resort has been set up as a village. Walking around this resort is like walking on a movie set. Although the resort has opened many years ago, it still looks up to date. The entire resort is maintained in an excellent way!
The gorgeous entrance truly is spectacular. You enter the beautiful lobby area and immediately notice the fantastic view all over the resort. The floor to ceiling windows feature amazing views of the turquoise blue colored Dead Sea! I couldn’t believe my eyes, it is so beautiful… so peaceful and oh so romantic. When I think of a luxury resort, this is exactly what I would expect. Check-in was very efficient and personal.
The brand is well known for its service and overall quality. When I entered the hotel, everything felt right here. After check-in we were escorted to our beautiful Premium Room. The room we stayed in was very spacious and I loved the contemporary and modern design. The beds truly were among the best I have experienced! The comfy couches were great. I also appreciated the large balcony with the perfect lounge chairs to relax. Our Premium Room had access to the private pool area. That’s right, Premium Rooms have their own adults only pool. It is the perfect spot for relaxing.
Bathroom with marble furnishings was also super nice with separate bath and a great walk-in shower and large sink. Fancy toiletries with Dead Sea minerals were a treat! Bathrobes and slippers are provided for your convenience.
There is so much to do here and even just walking around the resort is so much fun. It is almost unbelievable how well maintained this place is. I saw staff working and maintaining the gardens every time of the day. There are several main pools located right at the beach. The infinity pools are large and very clean and offer amazing panoramic views. There’s a great laid back ambiance around the pool and beach area with a lot of comfortable loungers. No need to put your towels here to ‘reserve’ your spot in the sun. Pool service was great too, they greet you as soon as you approach the pool area and make sure you’ll have everything you need.
Make sure to take a swim in the Dead Sea! The salty water make you float around. Oh and don’t forget to use the mud afterwards. It is great for your skin.
There are several secrets spots to be discovered at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea. Let me share some secrets: there’s a super nice Wellness & Spa area. This is the place to book relaxing spa treatments. There’s also a sauna and steam room available and a fully equipped fitness center.
Breakfast at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea is something to look forward to each morning. At Gaia, a gourmet breakfast buffet was waiting for us each morning. The freshly prepared omelets and waffles are a must try! They are sooooo yummie! I also appreciated the fresh and unique contemporary design of this restaurant. The food was amazing, each item we tried was fresh and tasted excellent. The panoramic views are fantastic!
At night, we had dinner at Luigi’s, their signature Italian restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. Service was so friendly… They will make sure you are enjoying your time here and every single request has been taken care of with a smile! The pizza was outstanding!
There was even live music and a belly dancer when we were there which made our evening even more perfect! Did you know that Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea is the only hotel in the area with live entertainment?
Another great dining option would be Almyra Beach House for delicious sushi. I love the location of this place. In the large semi open area right at the beach, it’s great to hang out and soak up the stunning views. There are other stylish bars and restaurants all over the resort.
Our Mövenpick experience was amazing! From the beginning to the end, everything felt right here! Highly recommended for a romantic getaway near the Dead Sea!
