Expert Review

This posh yellow-hued resort made a splash when it opened in May 2006 along Jordan's longest private beach and today remains the place to float in the Dead Sea's famously salty waters. Its lushly landscaped grounds are as compelling as the sea itself, what with nine freshwater pools (infinity and lazy-river pool among them), a 182-seat cinema, and one the largest and most-sumptuous spas in the Middle East spread out across the premises. Its 345 rooms are all elegantly decked out, too, with stone floors, deluxe bathrooms, and seaview terraces, plus rarified perks like complimentary minibar and internet access - not that you'll be inclined to check your email. 2009 Smart Luxury Award winner
