From the moment you arrive you are treated like a VIP. All of the staff are pleasant, kind, welcoming, helpful and ready to attend to your every need. The hotel grounds are quite large but they provide a map, which is helpful. If you are tired and do not want to walk, they will gladly take you on an electric...

I had never heard of this chain before we went to Jordan and a friend advised us of choosing this hotel at the dead sea.

Our expectations were blown...

I visited this property on 20.02.2017 for one night. The room upgrade, late check out option and special surprise as a honeymooner made the visit all the more exciting.

This hotel never fails to deliver. Comfortable and spacious rooms, amazing breakfast complete with champagne, the heated infinity pool, delicious Italian restaurant, getting lathered in mud followed by a Dead Sea wash-off and, best of all, the service is excellent. Will keep coming back... thanks. :)

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
