Only stayed here for one night to experience the dead sea as it was our last stop whilst travelling around Jordan. The hotel was very nice. The dead sea was very enjoyable to float around in albeit an extremely weird feeling. The pool areas were very nice and enjoyed a late sunset swim whilst watching the sun set on our... More

After touring Jordan for a couple of weeks we stopped here for three nights. Upon arrival you are made to feel like royalty as people grab your luggage, give you towels for freshening up, a drink and sit you down for check in. We were bumped up from a standard room in the main hotel to a villa room which... More

I have been to many five star hotels all over the world and in Jordan but this is by far the worst 5-star hotel i have been to Nobody cares! Nobody cares about the costumer service! If you are not royalty or a celebrity- or not important enough, you have nothing to do here. They igonre you, they treat you... More

Has that 'wow' factor visually in terms of layout, pools, views etc. Got upgraded to 'junior suite'? Huge room with great fittings and private balcony. Very nice. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Pool areas are great, esp the infinity pool - great views. Only ate buffet in Obelisk restaurant. Nice terrace, food OK but nothing special for an otherwise...

We arrived Thursday 17th of July afternoon for two nights; first impression was marvellous when we were greeted and welcomed by a very nice staff, and they gave us a cool wet face towel, then a cold glass of juice while we are waiting for our turn to check in.

Wonderful experience from the first moment to the last. Attendants receive your luggage, and you are soon whisked away on a golf cart through the winding terraced pathways to your villa. Beautiful view of the sea, with easy access, though we preferred to spend our time at the infinity pool and the lazy river. Complimentary mini-bar, nice bathtub with thoughtful... More

This is a great hotel! The resort is large and spread out which makes finding a romantic corner on a balcony or the beach or the pool a very easy task! The service from the moment you enter the security gate until you depart is excellent! The dinner buffet has quite a selection and the desserts were a bonus, especially... More

It is a great hotel, everything is simply perfect: service, food, location, rooms, swimming pools, ....The main difference between the Kempiski hotel and the other Dead sea mega hotels is the charm, it is not a classic, standardized mega hotel, it respects the Arabic style, and that's contribute to be part of the country!

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
