Movenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Sweimah
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

The hotel is nice but one has to be aware that it is a very touristic hotel. The food at Luigi's is Ok, but the service is not very enthusiastic. Belly dancing show and singers are nice.

The pools are fine with an 'infinty' look towards the Dead Sea. Clearly the one closest to the sea with lounge style is the best and offers the best view for the sunset.

The breakfast is rich and tasty, though the service is certainly not fast could be friendlier.

Overall, OK for a short stay.

Dear Valued Guest,
Many thanks for your review on Tripadvisor and I have taken careful note of your comments.
This is to inform you that by the middle of September, we will re-open our Chopsticks Restaurant, however, this time not only as a Chinese Restaurant but as an Asian Restaurant. We have now hired 2 Indian Chefs, who will be responsible for the Indian dishes at Chopsticks. As of September and until November, we are planning to organize as well a Streetfood Festival at the Valley Café, with many local specialties, life cooking stations, and of course also international cuisine. This all will surely give you more variety in terms of restaurant and food selection.
I hope to have the pleasure of being your host again during your next, maybe a bit longer visit to the Dead Sea and assure you already in advance of our best care and attention to your comfort.
With kind regards and best wishes.
Peter Hoesli
General Manager

The dinner was hosted by the Pakistani embassy in Amman for the visiting Pakistani exporters delegation, of which I was a part in Dec 2006. Benefitting from my previous experience of exhibitions and conferences, I went around and appreciated the place.
The open air restaurant for the reception was marvellous and made me feel like being in Rome, in the good old days where the famous duels were held.

I stayed one night in June 2014 at this lovely hotel. This hotel is almost like a self-contained little city, designed like a Moroccan palace with lovely courtyards and fountains. The gardens are very beautiful and all the public plazas, restaurants, pool and spa are elegant and pleasant. The rooms are nice size decorated in Arabic style with lovely colors. I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and will stay at this hotel again when I visit the Dead Sea.

This hotel is on the Jordan side of the Dead Sea. The entire hotel is first rate - the rooms, dining facilities, etc. I recommend it very highly. Although this is desert area it has the attraction of the Dead Sea. Access to the Sea is very convenient. There is even a shuttle service to and from the beach. There is also a salt water pool and a fresh water pool. The morning and evening buffets were very nice. The staff was very professional.

Room Tip: We only had one room which was excellent.

We were staying at another hotel nearby, but came to Movenpick to use the ATM machine, since our hotel didn't have one. We stayed for drinks and a couple of us had dinner as well. From our short tour of the property, I was very impressed with the facility. The elaborate furniture and ambience was luxurious. The layout of the hotel was an adventure in itself. At the outdoor patio/dining area, we had drinks, which were the only disappointment in our experience; they were all watered down. There was a belly-dancing performance followed by a solo singing performance. It was a nice warm night with a gentle breeze, the perfect way to enjoy the Dead Sea region with friends.
