Biankini Dead Sea Resort
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Kalia
Reviewed 1 March 2013

We went there to spend a romantic holiday, which finally didnt happend due to the poor conditions of that place.
From stinky bed linen , to 7 minutes of hot water to shower .
The room is old and full of Moskitos....
Food, better no to talk about it, the breakfast remind me those we see prisoners take at jail .
Good location , but not good intentions of the owners to improve this place.

The dead sea bay is not furnished at all, with not any place to lie down to rest, just a bunch of chairs and thats it.
By all this description, ou may think is a cheap please ; Well is not, the price is the same or more than any 5 stars place in the zone. Our recommendation , dont even get close to there.

Room Tip: Rather to go to another place

The owners of Biankini clearly made an impressive and thoughtful start-up investment in this place. The scenery is outstanding, located on he northern end of the dead sea, away from the cookie-cutter large hotels of Ein Bokek, merely an hour from Jerusalem, in a quiet and secluded area. The village was built with an elegant Moroccan theme, offering a unique combination of rooms, suites, and to house all sorts of guests.
Unfortunately, the initial investment appears to be the last time anyone invested in the place. The upkeep, service, and dining facilities are anywhere between poor and absurd. The 'palace' area is lined with two tiled outdoor hot-tubs. Unfortunately, they do not work, and they're full of dirt instead, providing an apt metaphor for Biankini as a whole. The Friday night dinner buffet was mediocre, which was much better than the chilly chicken and forgotten orders of Saturday's dinner. The place is understaffed, so getting anything from the restaurant takes an extremely long time. Even the breakfast buffet was unimpressive. Meanwhile, flies and birds fly throughout the restaurant while we waited to be served. In the rooms: The bathrooms are not that clean. Faucets are a bit rusty. Not all light-bulbs work. And it was noisy as anything at night. The Sea itself is a long and steep walk from the rooms (in part because the darn thing is receding, so that is not management's fault). Management itself is not particularly attentive.
Will take along time for us to give this place another shot.

I've been there for two nights with my wife as part of a festival (spiritual) and we both liked it a lot. When you think of the Dead Sea you think of that line of 4 stars hotels which comprise 90% of the hotels on our part of the sea (Israel :-)). I always hated those old and charmless hotels, which is why I rarely go there. But this was different. You get a villa-like room, some with awesome view, which is very private. The dining is great too... I loves the atmosphere of the marocoan style Decore etc

Luckily We did not stay at the "resort", Only went to the restaurant.
I've bee here twice unfortunately.one should expect something will be improved after two years . but not here.
Where should I start ...
Rude service ,
Terrible food (not good is a compliant) absolutely disgusting. .
Lack of sanitary,in my opinion this placed should be closed by department of health .
Its a shame that someone allow this restaurant to operate .
Do yourself a favor and keep away .

Interestibg architecture spoiled by tent settlements for neighbours, rubbish everywhere, people who used our spa (left half bottle of champagne - payment?). Breakfast wasn't at 7, nor 8, maybe 9 ... Who knows, we gave up waiting.

This place could be much better. Until it is don't go there. Very expensive

Positive - Very nice pool. Dead Sea Mud. Negative - Rooms very dirty with mattresses ripped. Complained about bugs and they gave us bug spray and bug zapper. Linens - Dirty. Towels - stains. Restaurant - dogs inside, smoking, got sick from their food. Dead Sea - long walk down a big hill to get there. Pictures- very deceiving online. Video is even animated. Customer service - hardly even exists. Had reservations for 2 nights. Stayed 1 so we didn't lose our money. Made a bed with my own towels and slept. oh and air conditioner. - very loud!

Room Tip: Don't stay there!
