This was one of the best resorts we have stayed at in terms of the room (huge), view and service. The place was perfect for one to three nights. I wouldnt stay for longer as, although the hotel is beautiful, there is much better stuff to do in Jordan. We had a room with a view over the Dead Sea....

What a resort, romantic, business like , luxurious all rolled into one. Once the sun went down the resort awoke to the sounds of Arabic music, the cool breeze, barbecue aroma. What struck most was the terraces. Such potential for an exciting event, an indian wedding.

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.
