Despite the absence of volcanic activity in Jordan, this is a country with a large number of thermal areas, especially in the nearby Dead Sea mountains. Many of them are open to the general public and others have been reserved for large hotel chains such as Hammamat Ma'In, giving additional luxuries. In any case, whatever way we visit these places, we will go out with a completely new body, especially in Winter.

On our trip to the Dead Sea, they told us about some hot springs surrounded by mountains and only 30 minutes away from the main hotel zone. Since we weren't bad, we decided to take a detour between the roads of Madaba and the great salt water lake.

That detour led us toHammamat Ma'In ó Ma'In Hot Springs. A complex of natural hot springs where water leaves the earth at more than 40 degrees Celsius. However, about 500 meters from the Ma'In Hot Springs hotel, there is the hot spring area used mainly by those who do not stay in the luxurious hotel. These are more neglected and not as beautiful, but they are a good option, especially since they are free.

Although the hotel looks very good, it costs more than 100€ per night But this does not mean that to enjoy its thermal area we have to sleep there, at all, we can enter without problems paying an approximate amount of 15JDN.

The first part consists of a large swimming pool and two waterfalls, one natural and the other artificial. The artificial one is at an excessive temperature and inside it hides a cave that in turn acts as a sauna. Presumably, all this is fed back from the hot springs.

There is a second hot spring area about 500 meters below the hotel. It is accessed through a private transport that will leave you in a small building where they offer all kinds of massages, so this area is outside the 15JDN initials. His private character makes one feel more intimate but at the moment of truth one will never be alone.

But that the eyes do not deceive you, this waterfall is artificial and was created after diverting the channel of one of the thermal water streams. This does not mean that the water is great and one does not want to leave the water in hours.

In short, a site that we can combine with the Dead Sea, provided that our hotel does not have its own spa. Ideal for two or three days to soak.

Where to sleep?

We have options for all tastes, from modest hotels to modern 5-star facilities. As a general rule, prices are high, especially hotels with direct access to the Dead Sea.

  • Crowne Plaza Dead Sea resort: our choice and the truth is that the hotel is a great reference. Private beach, comfortable rooms with terrace and one of the best SPAs in the area.
  • Mövenpick resort Dead Sea: probably the best hotel in the Dead Sea area.
  • Mujib Chalets: economic option south of the Dead Sea without having to leave us all the savings.
  • Ma'In hot springs: having the Dead Sea so close may not be a good idea, but if you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the area, it may be a good place to rest from everything.
