The public segregated beach does not have spa facilities, at least I have never noticed it.
There is something up the road I think, closer to Ein Gedi IIRC

Not really separate. The pool might be separate.

Probably talking about the business lounge where they have some fruit, drinks and canapes.
I would speak to the mashgiach to figure out what you are comfortable eating there. Even fruit and vegetables can have big issues in Israel.

I often find more things I can eat in a hotel in China or Poland than in an Israeli hotel  :)
I always think Israel's one of the only countries you can go hungry in.

If you are careful what you eat. Like Hechserim.

I was there a dozen or so years ago so my memory might be rusty but I recall a building with facilities to change for the segregated beach as well as indoor sulfur and salt water pools. not a spa per se but pretty nice

Yeshivas don't teach bochrim who don't eat rabbanut fruits/veggies how to separate trumot and maasarot themselves?

crowne plaza is overall my favorite at the dead sea. they have private beach at hotel not across the street like many hotels, minyan if you are lucky, its large recently renovated and get the most of your$
Wow, i remember that place being full of arab women when i checked it out years ago, is it nice now?

does CP Dead Sea recognize Plat Elite for getting into the lounge? Usually u get nothing for that level in israel...

Anyone have any recent experience at the CP Dead Sea Club Lounge?  Do they serve breakfast in the lounge?  Other meals?

They both have lots of steps...
There is a cable car that goes up Masada.
