Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Sweimah
Reviewed 30 November 2017

Loved our stay at the Amman Rotana in Nov. 2017 for 1 night (you could actually stay 1 week as there is much to do in the area and the hotel is so relaxing). The hotel is beautiful. A true 5*. They pay attention to all details. The Concierge Rakan Shwayat & staff were marvelous and truly helpful. They have one of the most beautiful infinity pool (over the dead sea) I experienced. We can swim till 11pm. Swimming in the dead Sea was so unique. They have their own private hotel Dead sea beach. We had a room with a balcony where you could see the stars. Will definitely go again if we return to Jordan.

Room Tip: If celebrating a special event (as we did), let the Concierge know before arriving. They made our st...

I have no doubt that Kempinski is the best hotel in the Dead Sea area. It is a huge resort, beautifully decorated in Arabian style and very well maintained. In summary, perfect!
It has nine swimming pools, one more beautiful than the other, but, of course, the highlight goes to the round pool where there is a DJ playing and where everyone wants to see the sunset, which, by the way, is always spectacular.
In Kempinski you will find the largest spa in the Middle East with large pools, small pools with Dead Sea water, fresh water, hot tubes, saunas and many areas to relax and enjoy the massages they offer. The products are all produced with the Dead Sea minerals, which is really cool.
The rooms are large, clean and comfortable, all facing the sea. The amenities are excellent, and are also made up of minerals from the Dead Sea.
The staff is impeccable, many of them are from Philippines, super solicitous. They are always attentive to the guest´s needs and serve you with agility, good humor and friendliness.
The area where we can enter the Dead Sea has guard lives and there you find the mud to pass in the body, plus a lot of mineral water, very important because of the heat and salt water that can not touch your eyes.
The Kempinski's restaurants serve delicious meals and various cuisines, and the hotel even offers evening attractions, such as a professional belly-dancing show. I loved the show we watched while we smoked narghile and the dancer performed very well!
Breakfast is a separate chapter. I have never seen so much variety of itens, and everything has a very high quality! We spent hours having that delicious breakfast!

We traveled as a Family and loved everything. Firstly the Staff from check in to check out were fabulous, super kind, attentive and helpful. The rooms were wonderful, the private beach perfect for a memorable Dead Sea Mud and floating experience, and the pools -WOW. Lovely to spend some time in the heated infinity pool. Very magical place. The breakfast was also fantastic! This places makes your Dead Sea experience so special and memorable.

This hotel is a wow. Incredibly spacious guest rooms, complete with a sitting area and huge bathroom with a deep soaker tub. I love the bathroom amenities, Trinitae, all made in Jordan which is fantastic.

This property has multiple pools including infinity pools and great beach access to the Dead Sea.

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. A special stand out is Ivan, his joie de vivre is infectious.

Room Tip: All rooms face the Dead Sea and are beautifully appointed
