The solarium is a specially designated area on the rooftop of every hotel at the Dead Sea. These areas are segregated between men and women. There is also a public solarium on the beach. These areas are specifically designed for men and women to sunbathe separately from each other and feel comfortable. There are a couple of hotels that do cater for couples and have a joint solarium on their rooftops. It’s a great place to be able to chat with other women or men (depending on which side you’re on) and this can be a great fun part of the socializing side and hugely beneficial to chat with people with the same condition.
This is also advantageous to people who have religious beliefs and therefore may not want to sunbathe with the opposite sex.
