Fairmont Amman spa with Dead Sea pool to open in Jordan

21 Dec 2017
A Dead Sea pool will form one of the main attractions when the Fairmont Amman’s Willow Stream spa opens its doors in January.

The soft-open will offer guests a first look at the wellness facilities, which span 2,200sq m (24,000sq ft) and include five treatment rooms, a couple’s suite, relaxation lounge, hammam and co-ed vitality pools.

The treatment menu draws on the essence of the Dead Sea and the healing properties of its salt, minerals and mud.

“Jordan is known for the healing qualities of the Dead Sea and we wanted this to be present for a retreat-like feel,” said Lindsay Madden-Nadeau, director of wellbeing for Fairmont.

“The Dead Sea pool – which holds actual Dead Sea water – and the mud room, combined with the authentic Trinitae Dead Sea products, brings the experience from the coast to the city.

"All the special touches in the spa – including artwork, amenities and uniforms – are inspired by the local culture, ensuring guests feel connected when they arrive."

In addition to Trinitae’s Dead Sea products, the spa will bring Swiss-based Dr Burgener to Jordan for the first time to provide facials.

The spa will also house a Life Fitness customised wellness area and dedicated personal trainers, a Pavi gym and virtual training by Fitness on Demand. A hair salon, nail studio, children's pool, whirlpool, mineral pool and outdoor swimming pool will complete the facility.

The spa concept focuses on a connection to the elements of earth, air, fire and water, with the willow – wood – representing the fifth element and symbolising a strong centre and flexible spirit.
