An incredible resort hotel on the edge of the Dead Sea. The rooms are beautiful, with big balconies overlooking the Dead Sea. There are multiple pools, including an infinity pool that bans under 14s. There is a private beach onto the Dead Sea, where attendants fill buckets of mud and there are fresh water showers. The range of restaurants is...

We spent one night here at the resort, and I think we could have easily done one more night. The resort is nice, and is sprawling over a large area. In general, the rooms were comfortable (although not necessarily 5 star). The only real negative that we faced was on our first day there, we hadn't had lunch and had...

The room was trendy minimalised type but only two plugs for our phones/ipad which is quite difficult especially if they are not close to...

Check in was good and smooth. The room size is good. The room furniture is getting old. The paint is chipped. The door to the mini bar was broken. Lights and lighting in the room are inadequate. The shower knobs are old and the full COLD water was still very hot. On the good side, the Buggy Cart Service was...

This hotel is so large it is disorienting. There are many pools but only two are really nice: the long family pool and the round pool for over 14. The over-14 pool and the baby pool are the heated pools. My kids enjoyed the long pool. When we checked into the hotel, it felt like the receptionist just wanted to...

Feels a bit like the hotel has been built in several waves. It takes a good 20min to walk from the reception to the dead sea. The hotel is extremely big, there is no central walkway and finding your way is more by luck than by logic. We got a room with a view of the dead sea which was...

First i will say the hotel is lovely. Clean, nice overlook at dead sea, great pool area with free towels and water. Good staff in the pool area, and by the dead sea. Always enough mud. We had a junior suite with acces almost right out to a pool in the main building. Arriving before check in time, so we...

We stayed here on the last night of a week long tour around Jordan. We were looking forward to 2 days of luxury and relaxation after a busy week. Upon check in we learned that 2 gigantic weddings were taking place that evening (our travel agent was not informed of this in advance). Any rooms away from the weddings were...

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
