They are not honest at all, I requested a quiet room, so they offered us an expensive room with big balcony, so we accepted because we had a special occasions, the room was nice, but at night we start hearing a very annoying noise, and after we investigate it seems there was a wedding party (which we have not been...

This Hotel is like no other! Deluxe to the max right on the Dead Sea! It isn't cheap but well worth the $$ for a treat. Rooms are luxurious and huge, the number of pools around the property are amazing! Entry in to the Dead Sea is easy and staff on hand to help with a mud bath experience. Can't...

This was our last stop on an amazing trip to Jordan, the service was impeccable and the staff friendly and very helpful without being over bearing. We were given a free upgrade, which was a very pleasant and enjoyable surprise. All in all a great place to stay, fantastic location and outstanding staff and service

Spent 2 fantastically relaxed days at the Ishtar Kempinski. The property is right on the Dead Sea and it is luxuriously spread. We ate at the Asian and the Italian restaurants. Great food. The breakfast was superb​ and overlooked the Dead Sea. Multiple levels of heated and cold pools, spa and facility to bathe in the Dead Sea. All in...

Room was nice and spacious. Bathrooms are very comfortable with separate tub and shower. We found itit easy to get around...

What strikes you immediately is the resort set up with multiple tiers of pools and direct access to the Dead Sea. There is a staff member by the beach willing to treat you to a quasi-spa treatment of Dead Sea mud. There are towels and even a shower by the beach. By far the most luxurious hotel on the Jordanian...

I chose this hotel because it is revered as one of the best hotels in the Middle East; it certainly lived up to expectation. The hotel is divided into two main areas; the main building and the Ishtar village. I opted for the Ishtar village to be closer to the pool area, and this was certainly worth the extra money....

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the Kempinski was luxury. The rooms are beautiful, breakfast outstanding, staff friendly... Note that if you don't chose to stay in one of the 'villas' you will be up in the main hotel/conference centre. For the extra $ it is well worth the upgrade to be down by the pool...

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
