My husband and I have just returned from 3 magical days at the Kempinsky Hotel at the Dead Sea in Ishtar Jordan. The staff were incredibly efficient, kind and helpful and could not do enough for us...even down to applying the Dead Sea mud to our backs where we could not reach. The hotel itself is magnificent, the pools were...

This is a fabulous hotel on the edge of the Dead Sea. Great service, impeccable rooms and multiple outdoor pools and restaurants. Start the day floating in the Dead Sea (wow!), cover yourself in healing mud and wash off, then wonder up to the infinity edge pool and have a delicious lunch at The Grill. Spend the afternoon sunbathing on...

Really disappointed in this hotel.......we had spent 3 nights at the Kempinski Aqaba (Red sea), and we were really impressed, and looked forward to coming to its Dead sea counterpart. First impressions were good, and the room was nice. However, it quickly became apparent this hotel was driven more from a commercial perspective, and it felt quite hierarchal. For example,...

Beautiful hotel in a lovely setting by the Dead Sea. The rooms are well appointed although the suite I am in is on the ground floor so does not give you much of an expansive view - make sure you ask for a higher floor if you are in the main building. The facilities are lovely and staff well trained....

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
