The property and location is breathtaking. Of course I can't compare it to the other hotels/neighbors along the coast of the dead sea, but I am assuming that the view could not have gotten any better. For that, the beauty of the rooms/property and for a few of the employees that helped us put on mud by the sea, I...

One night is not enough to make a difference.. You need at least to spend 3 nights at this fantastic hotel. They upgrade me immediately to a suit .. with a nice cold drink welcome. It is definitely your family choice there.

I came to Kempinski Hotel Ishtar at the Dead Sea for a short weekend (February 9-10) with my family. We stayed in two Ishtar Superior Rooms (2304, 2305 to be exact). The rooms were modern, clean and very comfortable in every way. They were full sea view and were close to "The Obelisk" where we had our delicious breakfast and...

My fiancée and I attended only for a massage and spa treatments, so did not enjoy the full range of what this hotel may have to offer. The massage was enjoyed by myself, however my fiancées resulted in bruising along the collarbone area. Afterwards when we wished to relax in the spa, workmen were banging away around a door frame...

I felt like the queen of Sheba. Fabulous space, wonderful spa, warm staff, delicious food and an amazing view. Waking up listening to birds tweeting, having breakfast facing the sea, this is true luxury.

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
