There’s no question which hotel along the Dead Sea delivers the most over-the-top experience: the Kempinski, with its mega-size amenities and top-notch location. This Byzantine resort on the north east side of the mineral-rich sea clocks in with the largest Anantara spa in the Middle East; it also claims the longest private beach in Jordan. Of the 201 345 rooms, 117 115 in the Ishtar wing are set on private, lagoon-dotted grounds and but all roomsprovide the shortest are a short walk to the resort’s nine freshwater swimming pools. Added luxuries in two on-site villas include private steam rooms, saunas, and dual living rooms—perfect for families on a Middle Eastern vacation. Outdoor adventures—including a hike to the Wadi Mujib Gorge, home to a 66-foot waterfall—can be arranged by the hotel’s concierge.

Room to Book:

Spa Simplex rooms are conveniently located near the property’s Anantara Spa.

Insider Tip:

Drop the kids off at the fully supervised Kids Club ($14 a day), where there are movies,  Nintendo Wii games, and face-painting.
