They are divided between the main hotel, which is housed in a stylish Arabesque building, and the Ishtar Villas - a boutique resort offering a more luxurious stay. The resort is set in gardens dotted with lagoons, waterfalls, olive trees and bamboo palms.

The centrepiece is the Anantara Spa, one of the leading spas in the Middle East, which offers a variety of treatments using the mineral-loaded Dead Sea water and mud, as well as Ayurvedic therapies, a hammam and an ice cave.

Other facilities include a state-of-the-art gym, a tennis court, cinema, bowling alley and a kids' club. The resort has nine freshwater pools, including two secluded pools, one kids' pool and a 'lazy river'. On the beach there are private tented pergolas fitted with individual music systems where you can relax with an iced drink and enjoy the beautiful views of the Dead Sea.

Guests have a wide choice of restaurants and bars, including a poolside grill, a sunset cocktail terrace and the option of 24 hour in-room dining
