Luxury is definitely the best word to describe this hotel. The facilities and the undying true service of all the staff with their smiles and dedications are truly exceptional, and to MR IVAN CERIO, his professionalism and exquisite care to me from day one up until my check out really made my holiday worth to remember. To Ms. Era and...

The hotel is excellent. When we arrived we got an up grade to the villas. The room was large and very confortable with beautiful views of the Dead Sea. During our bath at the Dead Sea the service was very friendly. The breakfast was good and our only crictic goes to the italian restaurant with a bad service and a...

I had never heard of this chain before we went to Jordan and a friend advised us of choosing this hotel at the dead sea. During our stay in Jordan, we heard great stories about this hotel chain from fellow travelers during our stay in Wadi Rum. We became excited and wondered how good it was. Our expectations were blown...

I visited this property on 20.02.2017 for one night. The room upgrade, late check out option and special surprise as a honeymooner made the visit all the more exciting. The staff is very Courteous and Professional in their approach. The food spread was quite elaborate in the oblersik restaurant and special request for vegetarian cuisine was well honoured. Infinity pool...

This hotel never fails to deliver. Comfortable and spacious rooms, amazing breakfast complete with champagne, the heated infinity pool, delicious Italian restaurant, getting lathered in mud followed by a Dead Sea wash-off and, best of all, the service is excellent. Will keep coming back... thanks. :)

I stayed there for one night. That was more then enough to enjoy the sea and short treatment in the spa. I recommend staying two or three nights for the spa and restaurants. The beach is not like any ordinary beach, it was more like a lake. It is different but worth the experience. The spa is amazing with really...

I've been to most hotels in Dead Sea and this hotel has been my favorite.. I've been here atleast 15 times and never had a complaint. It's perfect for just chilling/ relaxing it's not a "party" type of hotel which is perfect for couples and families.

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
