As you can tell by from the many reviews and pictures on TA, this is a large, beautifully landscaped property. There are actually two separate resort areas with two separate lobbies: the Main Hotel and the Ishtar Villas. Based on the TA reviews, we choose a room in the Ishtar Villas for our stay. The room was large with a... More

The service here was incredible. You just had to think it and the staff were there! More like a 6* hotel. The rooms were huge and offered choice of pillows and room fragrances! An amazing hotel. The Dead Sea was a wonderful experience and this hotel catered well for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

After Egypt air lost our luggage, we drove out to the kempinski on the dea sea. This hotel is absolutely beautiful...much like a four seasons in it's decor and level of service. We enjoyed the sea, the mud pots on the beach, and a nice dinner at the Italian restaurant that night. Their facilities are truly best in class...all of... More

Stayed 2 days in Amman at the Sheraton in the Tower rooms and thought that I had stayed in a super hotel, then I arrived at the kempinsky and realised that when someone gets superb service.

We have nothing to complain about. The check-in was very quick. As the room was not ready yet ( we arrived 30min before the advised check-in time so we couldn't say anything ), they offered us a free drink. 15min after we had a room specially prepared for our honeymoon... simply awesome. The service has been perfect during our 3... More

I stayed in this hotel for only 1nt and 1full day after driving from Petra and can't say I was entirely happy with the hotel or it's service. I used the spa immediately upon arrival since my room was not ready(I arrived at noon) and the spa/hotel is quite minimalist, a bit too much for my taste, and the spa... More

It was our fourth stay at this enchanting resort since 2007. It is one of the most luxurious hotels. Jordanians are very welcoming and the staff of this hotel too, especially Naji Abdul Ghani, the assistant front office manager, to whom we carry a great esteem. I highly recommend this hotel and looking forward to going back again. Just take... More

I have stayed at many other 5 star hotels and resorts, including the Kempinski, and was hugely disappointed. The standard of customer service, room and overall impression of the hotel leave a lot to be desired. We stayed in an Ishtar villa, which looked totally different from the website pictures. The room looked worn, was small and dark, even though... More

I stayed at the Kempinski Ishtar for 2 amazing nights while travelling around Jordan, it was an amazing experience. The resort is top class and the staff were all fabulous, extremely polite and helpful.

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
