I stayed here with my wife for a getaway weekend. We ended up more stressed as a result. The entrance to the hotel. Well let's just say they hire thugs that are very rude and have no idea of customer service. My wife is 8 months pregnant and they made us wait half an hour in our car under the...

First and last time in a Kempinski. The rooms are extremely dark. Food is very poor in quality and variety. Someone said the restaurant looks like a restaurant in a the motorway in France, and that is completely true, nothing to do with a five star hotel. The service is of a very low standard. Children are clearly not welcome,...

This hotel is certainly really nice and luxurious, and the breakfast is really good. My room had a huge, very funky terrace and a great view. But, the layout of the rooms and the resort itself is really weird, and kind of inconveniently annoying. Lots of empty space, long confusing walks to get to things, and an overall aesthetic that...

I wasn't sure which hotel to select at The Dead Sea in Jordan. Choosing The Kempinski turned out to be a very good decision. Firstly, the location is perfect. Having a villa just footsteps away for the shore of The Dead Sea was truly special. The accommodation was of a high standard. Even from the bath there was a view...

This is a vast, vast property, built on a very steep hill sloping down to the Dead Sea. The views are absolutely stunning from almost every point on the property, but if you have any kind of fitness or mobility issues you will need to make constant use of the golf-buggies (club cars as they insisted on calling them). Sadly,...

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
