Have you ever seen three suns set at once? It may sound like science fiction but there is a place on earth where you can witness this breathtaking spectacle.
For travel to the Dead Sea in Jordan and here, surrounded by total luxury, you can soak up a sight that will linger long in the memory.
Less than a four-hour flight from the Sultanate, direct with Oman Air, the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea resort is a sprawling, impressive uber-luxurious resort that has one very special jewel in its crown and that is a perfectly-positioned infinity pool, looking out to the Dead Sea and the mountains beyond.
Your strategically chosen spot by the pool allows you to sit mesmerised as the sun sets, reflected in the vast lake and then again in the infinity pool before you.
The effect is stunning, you sit perhaps for an hour just drinking in the scene. Blues and oranges darken as the sun creeps down behind the mountains, turning their bright sandstone to black in the failing light.
No visit to Jordan would be complete without a visit to the Dead Sea. The lowest point on earth, this natural phenomenon has been drawing tourists for centuries who flock to this highly-salinated lake for the health benefits, or just to float without having to swim in the salty water.
