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. The staff is very Courteous and Professional in their approach. The food spread was quite elaborate in the oblersik restaurant and special request for vegetarian cuisine was well honoured. Infinity pool...

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. :)

I stayed there for one night. That was more then enough to enjoy the sea and short treatment in the spa. I recommend staying two or three nights for the spa and restaurants. The beach is not like any ordinary beach, it was more like a lake. It is different but worth the experience. The spa is amazing with really...

I've been to most hotels in Dead Sea and this hotel has been my favorite.. I've been here atleast 15 times and never had a complaint. It's perfect for just chilling/ relaxing it's not a "party" type of hotel which is perfect for couples and families.

I spent my last 2 nights here after an intense and packed Israel/Jordan trip. It was my first time in a Kempinski and I can most cathegorically say that this is an outstanding hotel in every way. The setting is beautiful, the views breathtaking and the private beach with access to the Dead Sea make this very unique from a...

We stayed at the kempinski for our wedding anniversary and it was fabulous. The hotel is hidden away between other hotels but easy enough to find. On arrival, we were greeted with a welcome drink, check in was fast but thorough. We were upgraded to a suite - it was huge - beautiful bathroom with a very deep bath and...

I stayed a couple of nights here as a short break in between a hectic work trip schedule. I chose one day to go out to Petra - which was amazing - but I kind of wish I hadn't as it meant I didn't get to enjoy this place as much as I would've liked. It's incredible! From check-in to...

The property and location is breathtaking. Of course I can't compare it to the other hotels/neighbors along the coast of the dead sea, but I am assuming that the view could not have gotten any better. For that, the beauty of the rooms/property and for a few of the employees that helped us put on mud by the sea, I...

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
