Stay in October 2016. Everything is great at Kempinski Ishtar Hotel. It's absolutely beautiful place. When we came we have problems with skinhealth, but after 3 weeks staying , feel much better , sun and see helped. But the the main thing that helped - people working in this hotel. Mr Muhammad Caudura is the best of the best !...

Excellent room, delicious in-room dining, very good access to the dead sea, very good service around the hotel (water, towels etc), delicious breakfast. Had a hick-up with the valet parking: it took very long to get the car back but we got an orange juice in return for the long wait. Dreaming of the day when I can come back!

We enjoyed our entire time spent in Jordan and will definitely return. The hotel was superb from the service, the rooms, facilities and entertainment! The highlight of our visit was the infinity pool and access to the Dead Sea. We had booked a driver through the hotel and he was superb, patient and helpful. Loved it!!!

This is a wonderful property in an amazing location on the shores of the Dead Sea. As soon you drive up to the lobby, the fire and water features are stringing and make you feel as if you have certainly arrived somewhere special. The staff across the whole property are generally superb and friendly. The only issue I would say...

Great hotel and excellent location on the Dead Sea. All the staff were very helpful and brilliantly friendly. We had a very large bedroom with all the expected facilities - including Wifi which was free and reliable. The food was good, varied and plentiful. There was quite a selection of swimming pools - some beautiful. Swimming in/on the Dead Sea...

My fiance and I stayed here during a one-week trip to Jordan and have nothing but good things to say about our experience here. We only stayed for one night, but service was impeccable, and the hotel was well maintained. We were upgraded upon arrival and were able to check in early, which was great. During our stay we received...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kempinski Hotel Ishtar gives you the opportunity to enjoy its riches where Queen of Sheba and Cleopatra once strived to unravel mystery. Situated gracefully on the shores of the largest spa in the world the Dead Sea, unique for its ozone-rich air, mineral sea water and ultra-violet filtered sunshine. Surely there is no region on earth where nature and history have more wonderfully conspired, where so exciting drama has obtained a so beautiful theatre. ... more   less
