This hotel is most probably the best at the Dead Sea, it makes you bade in luxury with very nice pools, great restaurants and pleasant staff. You walk from the hotel to the sea where you can cover yourself in nice mud and then slide into the sea. The choice of restaurants in the hotel is already enough to spend...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and we both felt it was too short. The hotel is very luxurious, peaceful and clean. The pools are very beautiful; you can choose for a more busy pool (e.g. with kids) or a calm and relaxing one. The service around the pool is very good; regularly you get a bottle...

very nice hotel, good service, very good breakfast buffet, the price in off season was a very good bargain. The only inconvenient was that the outdoor swimming pools were not open during our stay. Beach facilities are great

The hotel is a very ubiquitous place to be in, the stuff working there are kind, polite, and careful enough to keep us satisfied. The gentleman working in the receptionist called "Farah" was grateful and helpful to us in getting want we needed and keeping us happy during our stay in the hotel.

The setting and location of this hotel is just perfect, overlooking the Dead Sea with plenty of green. The Ishtar part of the resort, which is made of little one level buildings is the one I would recommend as you are very close to the sea and to the main pools. The main building has very little interest. We stayed...

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
