This hotel was rated as the best in the Dead Sea by friends that live in Jordan and now I can say the same. The infinity pool is fantastic, The food is amazing and the service is quite good. The rooms aren't that impressive as they seem old and not very modern.

I was lucky to stay just on the cusp of low season, so got a free upgrade to a villa room, which was fantastic. They also offered me free late checkout till 2pm which gave me time to use the excellent onsite spa, which was HUGE but surprisingly empty. This is a great accompaniment to a dip in the dead...

If you decide to let a resort prevail over a boutique hotel, it needs to versatile: manage the space with interesting design; be private yet hip, luxurious but not snob. This Kempinski has it all. The rooms and interiors are spacious, the staff is friendly, your balcony gives you restful privacy and the DJ at the pool makes you feel...

I cannot add much to previous reviews except that the dining there is too expensive even for a five stars hotel. One burger and fries for more than $ 25 is really expensive. The staff in general are polite and helpful. The life guards near the pools near more training on how to deal with noisy people. We had to...

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
