The Dead Sea
Marriott Resort & Spa

In an effort to establish the area as a destination spot and tourism hub in Jordan, and when there was only one other 5-star resort in the area, BTC took a calculated leap of faith. In 1999 BTC acquired a plot of land on the eastern shores of the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, and commenced with its design phase for a Marriott Resort & Spa.

In 2003 the 200 room Jordan Valley Marriott Resort & Spa, a luxury resort and health tourism facility opened its doors to its first guests. Since its opening several developments took place at the resort to serve the heavy demand and to enhance its offerings.

When BTC signed a contract with Marriott International to develop their first resort in Jordan, the Dead Sea market only had two hotels with approximately 450 rooms at the time. While some dubbed it to be risky, the owning companies saw this as an opportunity to develop a unique product to establish the Dead Sea as a separate destination in and of itself. So, with an internationally recognized brand (Marriott) as operators and with the experience of the owning companies The 200-room Dead Sea Marriott Resort & Spa (DSM) opened its doors to its first guests 2003, creating unparalleled hype and adding lots of character to the area. In the few years after that, the eastern shores of the Dead Sea saw the development of several other hotels and brands. Today the Dead Sea is an established destination in Jordan with several hotels including internationally recognized brands such as Kempinski, Movenpick, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and other local brands.
