The Hammamat Ma’in complex is situated in the Wadi (which means valley in Arabic) Zarqa. Here you’ll find many springs and waterfalls. It’s like a little oasis with many flora and fauna. The water goes via little rivers towards the Dead Sea. Due to the high level of minerals in the water there’s a beneficial effect on your health which has been known for a long time: even the Romans visited this area and bathed in the pools. The average temperature of the springs lays between the 45 and 60 degrees Celsius. The complex offers several facilities like the Evason Ma’in Six Senses Resort, cafes, a bathhouse and even a mosque.
For the kids: There’s a special family waterfall with small pools where even the smallest kids can enjoy!
Zarqa Ma'in (biblical Belemounta), 58 km south of Amman and 120 meters below sea level, is the thermal mineral hot springs and waterfalls, where Herod the Great was said to have bathed in its medicinal water, and where people have come for thermal treatments, or simply to enjoy a hot soak, since the days of Rome.
It is now being restored and rebuilt as a comprehensive spa and natural clinic providing treatment for people with skin diseases, blood circulatory problems and bone, joints, back and muscular pains. With a 4-star hotel, leisure, bathing, and therapeutic facilities.
Visitors to the Dead Sea should also take advantage of another nearby wonder, Hammamat Ma’in (Ma’in Hot Springs). Popular with both locals and tourists alike, the springs are located 264m below sea level in one of the most breathtaking desert oases in the world.
Thousands of visiting bathers come each year to enjoy the mineral-rich waters of these hyper-thermal waterfalls. These falls originate from winter rainfalls in the highland plains of Jordan and eventually feed the 109 hot and cold springs in the valley. This water is heated to temperatures of up to 63° Celsius by underground lava fissures as it makes its way through the valley before emptying into the Zarqa River.
Situated in this exquisite spot is the 97 room Evason Ma’in Hot Springs & Six Senses Spa offering a wide variety of professional services including mud wraps, hydro-jet baths and showers, underwater massages, mud facials, electrotherapy and cosmetology treatments.
