TRAVEL IN STYLE: The Dead Sea, Israel

The Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth, surrounded by stunning desert landscape. What makes it even more unique is its salty water which has health properties. The famous Dead Sea’s black mud is used for healthier and smoother skin and therefore it’s one of my favorite things to do while there. It was given its name due to the fact that there is no life in the water, since fishes can’t survive in salty water.

Few weeks ago I had the opportunity to spend a weekend at the Dead Sea while visiting home (Israel is home!) and taking a break from abroad traveling. Even though I been to the Dead Sea many times before, I still felt excitement about visiting this unique place.

My weekend was a total luxury experience; I stayed in a gorgeous hotel by the beach, ate amazing food and enjoyed resting by the pool and beach.

ROAD TRIP:

To arrive to the Dead Sea we had to take a two hour road trip. Luckily, it felt like a part of the experience since the road leading to it is picture-perfect. We drove along the Negev desert and made a few stops on the way to rest and gaze at the view.

WHERE I STAYED:

I spent my weekend at Isrotel Ganim, a luxury hotel by the beach. My room was spacious enough and it had a gorgeous view from the window, overlooking the pool and the sea.

THE BEACH:

When visiting the Dead Sea, the most obvious thing to do is to spend your time by the beach. Soaking the sun, cover yourself in mud and floating on the salty water are normal activities for visitors of the Dead Sea. I’m no different every time I go there, it is so much fun!

WHAT I WORE:

Every time I go somewhere on vacation I carefully plan my outfits for each day. Sometimes, or more than often, I over-pack and just decide what to wear on the spot. This time however, I kind of knew what I wanted to wear.
