Perfect location, excellent design, very good restaurants with good variety of menus. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The staff is very attentive and dedicated with many wonderful people that genuinely care. Not to be missed is the spa. I took the Arabian massage of Bedouin inspiration and exquisite Thai execution. The Ishtar is one of those special places...

Stayed at this property on a business trip in mid-November, 2015. The staff was friendly, the views of the Dead Sea were terrific, the golf cart service to get around was quick, the spa was large and beautiful (don't miss the dead sea pool), and the food was delicious. Consider upgrading to the villa section and/or a suite for even...

This is a large, comfortable, classy hotel with good facilities. With direct access to the beach and the Dead Sea it's in a good location for enjoying a dip in the water. Nice restaurants, good food, decent sized rooms. Service ok but it's a large hotel so not personal.

So magical. The hotel is LARGE and it's slightly difficult to find your way around at first, but this is the most luxurious way to experience the dead sea. The views and the landscape are breath-taking.

The hotel is located at the red sea with access to the sea and mud available everyday. The rooms and amenities are really great and the staff members are all very nice and helpful. Perfect place for a short getaway at the dead sea.

Warm welcome in the Dead Sea, It is a nice, clean, comfortable hotel. They offer an awesome breakfast buffet and top service. This hotel is clean, in a good location with wi-fi, and nice decor.

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
