The hotel itself seems to be cold at the first sight but the welcoming and the services are great. The infinity pool is cool and our child could have fun in the other pools. It would be awesome if the spa could be free of charge for the guests as it is quite expensive. we will go back!

Positives: beautiful property, breakfast, fabulous pool areas, great views, lovely rooms and, of course, access to the Dead Sea. Negatives: poor service, rip-off prices and low-quality food. Luxury hotels generally provide exceptional service - in my experience, this is what sets them apart from the...

Stayed in this hotel in a superior room facing Dead sea in the main building. The view was amazing. Though my Brother-in-law got a room upgrade (a suite), we didn't get any. But I was happy with my room. Breakfast has good options with veggies and with so many cake selection. The best part of hotel is the premium service...

It was my 7th visit to this great hotel and as expected I got the best service and food ever especially the Italian restaurant which I always go to whenever I'm there.. From my point of view, this is the best hotel in the Dead Sea area by far.. Great job Kempinski, keep it up 👍 👍👍

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
