Dead Sea Facelift: $276 Million, 5,000 Hotel Rooms

1

The Dead Sea Preservation Government Company founded by Israel in 2007 has decided to upgrade the entire area into “one of the world’s top tourism destinations,” Haaretz reported.

The government will spend $276 million upgrading the two main hotel zones at Ein Bokek and Hamei Zohar and join them with a promenade and bicycle path. 5,000 hotel rooms will be added, some on three new hotels located on artificial promontories – a first for Israel.

The hotels draw a million tourists annually who come for the environment and therapeutic water.
