Movenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea
Dead Sea, Jordan
CHALLENGE The design challenge was to create a one-of-a-kind property that would lure tourists from the more mature seaside destinations of Israel and Egypt.
SOLUTION This is the first International-standard five-star resort in Jordan. Working with, instead of against, the sloping, boulder-strewn site, WATG anchored the resort with an ornate main building and guestrooms designed to recall the streets of old Jerusalem. The resort's village includes restaurants, shops, artisan workshops, and a courtyard typical of small Jordanian towns.
SIZE 232 guestrooms; 60 suites 6,000-square-meter ZARA Spa
AMENITIES Seven restaurants and lounges; two pools; state-of-the-art full-service spa; tennis courts; fitness center; 500-seat amphitheatre
