The legendary Dead Sea, known for its low elevation, hyper salinity and history as a place of refuge and health is the location for the newest Dead Sea Resort by Hilton and Emaar. Attached to the existing King Hussein Convention Centre, the resort provides guests with breathtaking views, unparalleled restaurants and an impressive spa experience.


The lighting design draws inspiration from the sea and the sensation of spa and relaxation, focusing on clean soothing elements interwoven with the naturally carved scenery to create an atmosphere of tranquility and peace. The landscape journey is a sensory adventure achieved through low level lighting which has been designed for elegance, whilst the fa├žade scheme subtly highlights major vertical elements and enhances architectural niches, while most of the building is kept dark.
