The Best Dead Sea Hotels Resorts Jordan | 4 & 5 Star Hotels

A visit to the Dead Sea in Jordan is one of the top things to do in the Kingdom. It is located just 45 minutes by car from Amman and it is possible to do as a day trip from Amman. However, it is well worth allowing at least one night at the Dead Sea. There are quite a few hotels at the Dead Sea, from familiar brands to independent hotels. Whether you are visiting for one of the many conferences that occur at the Dead Sea or are visiting to float at the lowest place on earth as part of your Jordan itinerary, you will find everything you need to know about choosing the best Dead Sea hotels and resorts below.

The Best Dead Sea Hotels and Resorts

Dead Sea Spa is the most economical choice for a nice hotel on the beach. It is considered to be a 4 star hotel according to Jordan’s hotel ratings and is the best 4 star hotel at the Dead Sea. It offers a great hotel for a mid-range budget. It is locally owned by a Jordanian family (with a Palestinian background). It was actually the first resort built on the Dead Sea. It opened in 1990 and features 265 rooms and suites. The 5 pools are nice to cool off in, the staff is friendly and the rooms are good. They have a small waterpark for kids and a larger waterslide, perfect if you are traveling in Jordan with a family. The Dead Sea Spa Resort has a good chunk of beach access with mud for guests. They actually have the largest beach of all the resorts at the Dead Sea. There are showers right by the Dead Sea to shower off or get water or mud out of your eyes (trust me it stings). They have evening entertainment on the outside deck and guests can opt for a breakfast only room, or breakfast and dinner options.

Hilton Dead Sea Resort and Spa is popular for loyal Hilton members. It offers luxurious, modern rooms, multiple bars, two swimming pools, private beach access and a fitness centre.  Rooms can be booked with breakfast only or breakfast and dinner. If you choose the Hilton, you will not regret the upscale atmosphere. There is also a kids club for those traveling with kids. This gives mom and dad a break or time to float at the Dead Sea, as few kids enjoy the experience.

Crowne Plaza Dead Sea Resort and Spa often offers rates that are close to that of Dead Sea Spa but you get that little bit of extra 5* service. It offers a luxurious feel and modern rooms. It also caters to families. 

Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea is also one of the most beautiful properties on the Dead Sea. Its pools offer ultimate relaxation and views of the Dead Sea below. It is exceptionally clean and staff are friendly. It offers beach access for guests to float.

Ramada Resort Dead Sea is an economical option at the Dead Sea, but it is not located on the beach. It is a nice hotel, rated as a 4 star. It has two pools, one of which is heated in the winter. There is a shuttle that will take you to a private beach that runs all day. You can also walk if you do not mind. If you are visiting on a budget, this is probably your best option, but compare it to the other 4 star properties. 

Holiday Inn Resort Dead Sea is one of the most economical options to stay at the Dead Sea. The one downside to this hotel is that it is located across the street from the Dead Sea so it does not have direct beach access. For the price, I personally think you are better off with the Dead Sea Spa.
