‘Ein Gedi botanical gardens at Ein Gedi kibbutz are lovely. There is a restaurant at the reception building that is part of the spa hotel there.
Absolutely beautiful gardens set in stunningly dramatic scenery. Cool and shady places to sit. Kosher l’pesach bar restaurant attached to the reception building that is part of the spa hotel also run by the kibbutz. There is a pool, but that may be private to hotel guests. Worth a visit in its own right. Also a good stopping point to rest and refuel if exploring the Dead Sea.’
