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. Front desk team and the check in procedure were quick... More

This is an excellent hotel- if you appreciate excellent service, you are looking into the right place. They really followed the moto of meeting your every needs- for example- 1. When my iPad was just not charging at all, I left it with them and they returned it fully charged 2. When I requested a wake up call, they sent... More

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!

Our first contact with the lobby was terrifying: it looked like one of those mega hotels with families and children yelling everywhere around you... but the trauma did not last long. Once we where safely checked in everything went as expected. The location is a dream, the rooms are really nice and the general layout is amazing. It could be... More

A great hotel and ideal for the dead sea. I stayed here whilst attending a conference at the convention centre which is a short taxi/walk away. You will be greeted with a smile and a complimentary refreshing drink on arrival. The rooms were large, clean and nicely furnished with a separate dressing area. The complimentary bar was a nice surprise... More

The welcome drink was great and refreshing, and staff is very friendly! Since it was the beginning of Ramadan, the hotel was very empty and most of the restaurants were closed but it was understandable.. The entry to the dead sea is perfect(but the floor is very hot, be careful!!). The multiple pools are just great and the food service... More

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
