We spent several days at this hotel last December and I must say that it is not a five star place. Firstly, the services range was as expected but the quality of these services was generally not too impressive as the staff was apparently just doing a bare minimum required. The main attraction is obviously the Dead Sea but we...

One night here did not feel like enough but we took advantage of the winter deal (much cheaper than the price for a night in the summer) and drove down from Amman to get some warmth. It's not like the other hotels next to the Dead Sea in Jordan which you can go to for the day - if you...

Only had one night and will stay longer next time. Views are fantastic over the dead sea. Hotel and surroundings are fantastic. Infinity pool was a delight and staff attentive and courteous. Food very good but more local produce would be a plus. Alcohol expensive but it is an arab country. Will definitely go back.

We spent 3 nights at Kempinski Dead Sea and had an excellent time over there. The staff and the service provided by them were top notch. Especially Firas who worked at the beach was extremely helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect, especially since we would wake up with views of the Dead Sea and beyond thanks to the...

I am the first to admit that I have never stayed in a hotel this nice with as great as services. Thus I am sorry to give them only 4 out of 5, but by doing something helpful (as they perceived), they upset me. The check-in was great even though my room wasn't ready. You can literally walk into the...

My family and I stayed here for Christmas. What a fantastic resort. This is simply the best hotel on the Dead Sea. The property design, layout and landscapping is fantastic. The roos are large and very well appointed. The service is outstanding. The gym and spa are outstanding. The food is excellent. Simply superb.

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
