We went 3 days to this hotel . The rooms are nice and the Bathrooms are excel·lent. The Building is huge, with different levels and gardens . You have a lot of palms and a private beach where a nice guy is putting mud on your body! Very nice this! The restaurants could be better but the views of the...

We were looking for a quality hotel as a base for the sights of Jordan. This hotel ticked that box. We had a slight issue at the start of the holiday but this was resolved quickly and effectively by Sebastien and the team and actually ensured the rest of the holiday was a first class experience. The staff were super...

We stay here the night before Christmas for a short 4 day trip across Jordan. Upon arrival we were upgraded the the Villas on the beach front.... The resort is excellently maintained, and the "mud service" on the beach is an outstanding perk! Submerge yourself in the Dead Sea, at the Kempinski!

Was given a free upgrade to a suite. The place is huge and very relaxing. It definitely feels like a resort (which I get can be a bad thing) but at the end of a busy and fast paced road trip across Jordan, it was a really nice relaxing way to finish. The staff were great and I do love...

Great hotel with amazing situation and very nice property, great swimming pools and nice fitness area. Rooms are expensive but all nice.

This hotel is stunning whichever way you look at it, location, ambience, service, et all. You will have to however put up with a drive that can last 90 minutes from Amman airport but when you arrive the sheer stunning scenery of the Dead Sea will take your breath away.

I stayed here for two days after my Jordan tour and while an expensive hotel, it was worth every penny. For comparison, the tour had us booked at what was called a 4 star in Aqaba, which if true, means the Kempinski would warrant 10 stars. I stayed in one of the Villas and that was the right choice for...

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
