This May 2017 was the second time we are in Jordan. Last year we travelled along the country and experienced different hotels at the Dead Sea (Kempinski Ishtar), Aqaba and Amman in order to understand that Kempinski Ishtar is the best one in Jordan, so no questions were raised and this year we returned especially for this hotel. The most...

We have been kempinski advocates and loyals for the past few years up until today, the service level has gone down from 5 to 0 in our eyes be it in relation to the staff reciprocation, the bias for action, and their policies.

The staff were incredibly efficient, kind and helpful and could not do enough for us...even down to applying the Dead Sea mud to our backs where we could not reach. The hotel itself is magnificent, the pools were...

This is a fabulous hotel on the edge of the Dead Sea. Great service, impeccable rooms and multiple outdoor pools and restaurants. Start the day floating in the Dead Sea (wow!), cover yourself in healing mud and wash off, then wonder up to the infinity edge pool and have a delicious lunch at The Grill. Spend the afternoon sunbathing on...

Really disappointed in this hotel.......we had spent 3 nights at the Kempinski Aqaba (Red sea), and we were really impressed, and looked forward to coming to its Dead sea counterpart.

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
