Travelers' Choice
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.

Lama A wrote a review Yesterday
I would like to thank the lady in red ms celini for standing out and really was the only one to help me and resolve my issue. I spoke to many reception desk staff none were able to resolve. I had booked 3 rooms for 3 nights for me and my kids. I got the worse room with poor ac , non functional fridge and most importantly for me no terrace just a small balcony despite booking a dulux room with terrace. Thank you celini for insisting to show me a replacement room and offering an upgrade. Really changed my vacation as i can sleep now. Besides that the staff in the ishtar restaurant are all extremely helpful and very pleasant ie. ibrahim, mohammad, noureddin , yehya and actually all of the staff including the managers . They all excel at what they do. Housekeeping and room service are super fast and very generous they just wish for u to ask and they deliver with delight and pleasure. This time the main dishes buffet was not fantastic as we stayed for 4 days thought there was reception and dullness in main dishes. Unlike the desserts very talented chef with presentation and variety. Thank u kempinski for making out stay exceptional. I cant forget the ongoing service and generous services at pool side like cleaning glasses, passing fresh fruits, lemon shots , freezing water bottles and cold towels. Same exceptional service at dead sea shore. Thank you everyone
