At this time of year the weather in Jordan is perfect. Head to the Mövenpick Dead Sea Resort & Spa to make the best of it. 

Wow factor This hotel has the best stretch along the Dead Sea – others can be marred with rubbish and/or are too rocky to reach the waters easily.

Smother yourself in ‘youth-giving’ mud before climbing down into the sea, which has such a high salt content it contains no form of life, except for the humans bobbing about like corks on its surface. It’s a magical moment, and the hotel’s gorgeous infinity pool running parallel offers a great dip too for when you are saltier than a Maccy D’s fry.

Rooms Low level with cute balconies or terraces, they are rustically decked out but also mod-conned up.

Bill please Standard doubles from £140pn during September, excluding taxes.
