Hilton has expanded its resort portfolio with the official opening of Hilton Dead Sea Resort & Spa, its first property in Jordan.
The 285-room contemporary hotel is located on the eastern shore of the Dead Sea, which is, at 410 meters below sea level, the lowest place on Earth. The property is adjacent to the award-winning King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Centre, which has 27 meeting rooms.
“The Dead Sea is one of the most unique places in the world and has evolved into a major hub of both religious and health and wellness tourism in the region,” said Andreas Lackner, regional head, full service brand management, Hilton. “As the first Hilton Hotels & Resorts property in the country of Jordan, this project marks an exciting addition to the Hilton portfolio as we continue to deliver distinct hospitality experiences to travelers from around the globe.”
Features and amenities at the property include:
- guestroom terraces with views of the Dead Sea
- 24-hour fitness center
- infinity pool
- executive rooms, suites and lounge
- seven f&b outlets: Spectrum (all-day dining); 1312 (Middle Eastern cuisine); Bacchus (authentic Italian cuisine); Infinity (casual poolside snacks and refreshments); Beach Bar; Sky Bar (contemporary roof-top lounge); Vue (lobby lounge)
Guests also enjoy easy access to the Dead Sea and its curative black mud and salty water, via two elevators that lead to a floating pool surrounded by a sun deck.
“Hilton is a well-reputed brand that has an established presence in the region,” said Elias J. Moukarzel, general manager. “With the opening of the Hilton Dead Sea Resort & Spa, we come to the Jordanian market with the highest levels of standards delivering our founder’s promise of ensuring every guest feels card for, valued and respected. The new resort comes with a variety of unique offerings and we promise our guests an unparalleled experience coupled with ultimate service levels.”
The property is 45 kilometres from Amman, Jordan’s capital city, and 65 kilometres from the Queen Alia International Airport. Nearby tourist attractions include Wadi Mujib, Ma’in Hot Springs and Madaba, the city of mosaics.
