Instead of seeing tourist friendly Petra, Kipp went to a hotel spa in the middle of nowhere, and managed to get away from it all.

The most relaxing part of my vacation was visiting the adjacent Six Senses Spa, which offers a long list of treatments and massages. I first went in for a Zeytoun Olive Body polish for 30 minutes, and followed it with a facial massage

for another half hour. The masseurs are excellent, and the experience left me craving for more. As I dreamily tried to tune back to reality, lounging near the pool, I was served a strong tea and dry fruits. However, all that relaxation comes with a heavy price tag; I had to shell out JD50 ($71) for the treatments.

Despite the price, I would have loved to spend a lot more time at the spa, but the Dead Sea was just 30 minutes away, and I didn’t want to miss the experience. The hotel offers free shuttle services twice a day, but the morning that I left, there was a lot of confusion and delay. However, after a bumpy ride, we finally reached the Amman Beach Tourism Resort, where for JD13 (around $18), we got access to their beach at the Dead Sea.

Jumping or rather wading into the Dead Sea, and then floating in it, is certainly one of the weirdest experiences I have ever had. You have absolutely no control over your movements, can’t swim, and even if a single drop of the highly saline water goes into your eyes, you turn blind for a while. Also, if you have a wound or even a small scratch, you might want to abstain from entering the water, as it will burn and hurt horribly.
