A large, family friendly resort on the Dead Sea opposite the Palestinian Territories. You can see the lights of Jerusalem at night. The resort, being Kempinski, strives for luxury and it almost gets there. The staff is smiley and friendly even if most if them don't quiet understand English. The famous Kempinski service isn't quite there though - we spent...

I have spent the weekend at this decent hotel. Regardless of the splendid architecture, the check in went smooth, quick, with real care while offering a welcome drink. The person whom took us to our room is pleasant, polite and informative. The room is spacious; yet, the cleanliness could have been better. The floor is dirty especially under the bed...

Service slow. Food is not so good . I went more than once thinking it would be better every time. It didn't ! To be fair the only reason why I pick it every time because it doesn't allow anyone to enter unless they have a room so it's a bit more selective !

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
