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. We really enjoyed the clean beach area with buckets of dead sea mud replenished for bathers to slather on. There was always an attendant with fresh towels and bottled water when we...

Swimming pools are great but everything else is very very average and should be a 3* hotel. Service in the restaurants and around the pool is awful, everything is overpriced and the rooms are very basic. There's also a note in the room saying you will be charged if you take items such as kettle or towels however it's an...

I stayed here with my wife for a getaway weekend. We ended up more stressed as a result. The entrance to the hotel. Well let's just say they hire thugs that are very rude and have no idea of customer service. My wife is 8 months pregnant and they made us wait half an hour in our car under the...

First and last time in a Kempinski. The rooms are extremely dark. Food is very poor in quality and variety. Someone said the restaurant looks like a restaurant in a the motorway in France, and that is completely true, nothing to do with a five star hotel. The service is of a very low standard. Children are clearly not welcome,...

This hotel is certainly really nice and luxurious, and the breakfast is really good. My room had a huge, very funky terrace and a great view. But, the layout of the rooms and the resort itself is really weird, and kind of inconveniently annoying. Lots of empty space, long confusing walks to get to things, and an overall aesthetic that...

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
