It's 6am here in Ma'in, struggling to sleep after a long time fighting with my pillows and bed sheets, so why not grab the iPad and remember my first day at the resort.
Evason is the only hotel here at the springs of Ma'in, welcoming guests seeking relaxation calm and serenity. We arrived in the early hours of the afternoon, checked-in and went straight to the pool.
A large lobby, dimmed lights and wood, lots of wood, taking over the space which reminded me in an island treehouse setup. Thick wooden doors, wooden structures and signs carved in wood as well. Walk around the lobby to discover the cozy bar, the wide restaurant, the cellar private dining space as well as the library, my favorite space in the resort.
Few meters up the resort are the waterfalls: Hammamat Ma’een have been enjoyed for therapeutic and leisure pursuits for thousands of years. The main public attraction is a large spring-fed waterfall, while a number of smaller ones spurt forth within the private resort and spa. The water, ranging from 45°C to a blistering 60°C, tumbles off the hillside in a series of waterfalls and less assuming trickles, and is collected in a variety of pools for public bathing. It contains potassium, magnesium and calcium. Make sure to spend sometime under the falls and feel the strength of the water, its pressure and heat.
Good to know: You can use the free hot springs, open for the public or pay JD38 for a more private waterfall down at the spa.
We had some drinks on the balcony before moving along for dinner. Choose between a Corona, Budweiser, Amstel and Heineken. Beers cost between $7 and $14 depending on the brand.
That night was dinner at the resort's main restaurant where a buffet is served from 8 until 10pm. A nice ambiance and some tasty food, exactly what you need after a busy day running around the premises. Dinner than drinks on the terrace.
