Hilton Dead Sea Resort & Spa is 45 kilometers from the capital city of Amman and 65 kilometers from the Queen Alia International Airport and a short drive to many of Jordan’s major tourist attractions, including Wadi Mujib, Ma’in hot springs, Madaba – the city of Mosaics and the Baptism Site.

Viceroy Dubai Palm Jumeirah

Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai comprises 477 rooms and suites, 221 Viceroy Residences, 10 restaurants and nightlife venues, a spa, a beach, a pool, health and wellness areas, and a children’s club. The hotel entrance has a 15-metre self-supporting glass cube which is entirely free of structural steel and allows natural light to flood in and provides a view straight through to the pool, sea and beyond. Inside, twisting wooden structures reinforced with steel gracefully rise up to support the glass and it resembles a double helix.

Opening date: March 31, 2017
