Expert Review

For years, Jordan's biggest tourist draw was the ancient carved-in-stone city of Petra. But a slate of new luxury hotels and spas suggest the country may become the Middle East's premier spa-resort destination. The best offering is the revamped Evason Ma'In and Six Senses Spa, a cool outpost at the base of scorched cliffs, just inland from the Dead Sea and an hour's drive southwest of Amman. The resort is surrounded by hot spring waterfalls, fertile olive groves, and burgeoning gardens. Its 97 rooms, outfitted with fine woods, lend stunning valley or waterfall vistas. Embracing sustainable practices, the five restaurants at the Ma'In serve cuisine largely sourced from nearby farms. The spacious spa favors resort-grown ingredients like olives for signature treatments performed beside a natural thermal pool. There’s an outdoor movie theater and a tented outdoor restaurant serves traditional meals prepared by local Bedouins in charcoal-fired pits in the ground. 2009 Smart Luxury Award winner
