here. I know I always go overboard, but like I said earlier, I’m a very visual person.
These pictures were taken over the last week at Moevenpick Resort Dead Sea, which is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. The Dead Sea by itself is an amazing place, and like I said, I’ve never been there before, so I found it mind blowing. Swimming in the sea was an amazing experience, and the weather was wonderful there although it was really cold in Amman(going from 1300 kms above sea level(Amman) to 300 kms below sea level in 45 minutes at 100 kms/hour.Hehe, the drive back was terrible with my 1300 CC car!)
The architecture and design of the hotel reminded me of Al-Hamra Palace of Spain. It’s basically based on a similar water system that starts in the reception area and runs under the glass floors, down the walls, and into the outside where it flows into a beautiful stream that flows into the pool. The two pictures above are of the stream, and the picture below is where the stream flows into the sand pool:
The sand pool has an infinity edge so that it looks attached to the sea:
Sunset(pool ends where people are swimmung)
The architecture of the actual buildings is also amazing, and it portrays the architecture and history of Jordan, which I thought was a wonderful change from modernism and Western style architecture.
Update courtsey of Dad:
“First of all, you went to Dead Sea when you were 2, 3 and 6. We went to the area were Zara Falls end and join the sea, you and your brothers swam there before anyone else did.
The altitude is not 1300 KMs, it is 1300 meter. Altitude of Dead Sea surface is 392 m below level of ocean or other seas.”
