Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, Dead Sea

Jordan

The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth and a classic travel bucketlist destination. You won’t want to miss taking an unusual swim in the incredibly salty waters. But the Dead Sea isn’t just about floating in the water. This is also a very relaxing destination, as showcased by the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, a large resort set along its own Dead Sea coastline. With nine pools and the biggest spa in the Middle East, this can initially seem a behemoth of a hotel. However, while it is not boutique, the resort is large enough to ensure everybody has their own space. It’s a wonderful place to relax before or after a longer Jordan trip. And it’s within reach of the country’s other extraordinary travel highlights.

Day 2 - The Wonders of Petra

Petra by Day and Night

Jordan

Magical and mysterious, Petra is one of the world’s greatest ancient sites. Mausoleums are carved into sandstone cliffs, secret caves cover the landscape and camels wander past. Temples and monasteries change colour from red to pink as the sun crosses the sky. This now-abandoned city was once the capital of the Nabataean Kingdom. It has a remarkable scale and beauty. Travel by horse-drawn cart then walk down the narrow corridor that guards Petra’s entrance. The fissure opens and the city extends before your eyes, sculpted in natural hues of pink and orange. A local guide takes you around the most mysterious sights, including the Royal Tombs, Burial Chambers and the treasury made famous by Indiana Jones.The sandstone city is even more mysterious after dark. An evening tour is a great complement to a historical discovery during the day, complemented by the places of Petra that other tourists do not see.

Day 3 - Wadi Rum Adventure

Wadi Rum Desert Glamping Safari

Jordan

Strange colours glow in the Wadi Rum desert. There is scorched yellow, blunted ochre, shimmering orange, and a kaleidoscope of reds. Sand dunes rise and sandstone cliffs cover the landscape, making this desert a place of natural artistry. Spend the day admiring the silence and sand formations, cruising around Wadi Rum in a guided four-wheel drive adventure. Then admire how everything changes colour at sunset. You will glamping out in the desert, reliving Lawrence of Arabia times, enjoying the simple luxuries of a desert camp. It’s all surprisingly spacious and very comfortable. Think Persian rugs, tea ceremonies and complete privacy. This Wadi Rum desert safari can be adapted as a single day activity, or even as a two-night safari.
