Six Continets offers extensive choice

Some of the leading spa properties of the group are:

Luxurious treatment rooms will offer full range of face and body treatments for toning and relaxing. Exotic spa heat rooms with delicate aromatherapy scents will contrast dramatically with an icy 'igloo' which is designed to chill the body and leave one feeling refreshed and invigorated.

A Rasul mud chamber will allow guests to apply a cleansing and exfoliating mud clay scrub to the body after which 'tropical rains' open in the Rasul chamber and wash the mud away.

A small gym provides state-of-the-art cardio-vascular equipment essential for a balanced work out.

The InterFit Spa at InterContinental Jordan: The spa opened in 1997 and offers guests a 'look good, feel good' formula for better living.
