When: July 2005

I died and went to heaven at the Movenpick Resort at the Dead Sea! At their Zara Spa I spent two days getting massaged, pampered, tanned, and wrapped in hot mud.

Ahhh. I would go back there at moment's notice. Actually, I hope to convince my husband to take us there in the spring. My therapist for the day (Chen, a licensed acupuncturist and reflexologist) gave me a prescription for Chinese herbs so that I can balance my overactive yang as well as the best massage that I have ever had. All the more reason to go back!

It's right on the dead sea -- which you float in! (See photo.) The lowest point on earth (400m below sea level); the saltiest sea in the world; low humidity; warm climate; ozone-rich air; mineral-loaded seawater; the atmosphere over the Dead Sea is rich in bromine, magnesium and other minerals. The prices were affordable for the rooms. Around 100 dollars a night (see their website for current rates). The rooms are carved rock oasis in the Jordan desert. Wonderful array of restaurants on premise to choose from. The atmosphere of the hotel is relaxing and full of beautiful antiques and works of art, gushing streams, and picturesque views of the Dead Sea. Just the best!
