My experience at Kempinski was simply fabulous, it was the highlight of summer. Great hospitality, awesome pools and nice scenery. If you are looking for a memorable experience at the dead sea, make Kempinski your first choice

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. The place can be cold in the mornings early in...

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...

The Kempinski Ishtar Dead Sea never fails to deliver! Every year we go and it just gets better. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly, I would have the say the recreation manager (Mohammed) and his team (Youssef, Sameer, only to name a few) top the charts, with their humor, hospitality and flexibility. The Kempinski offers great dining experiences...

Spent two nights here at the end of our Jordan trip and had a really great time. The facilities are high quality and the service was top notch.

Swimming pools are great but everything else is very very average and should be a 3* hotel.

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
