This hotel is absolutely the best by all means, it is very luxurious and fancy. The staff is very friendly and helpful especially front desk team, they welcome you with a generous smile on their faces. Food is amazing, atmosphere is even greater ! Kempinski beats all other hotels by far !

Great location with a few pools and direct access to the dead Sea. Convenient and away from the crowd at the public beach. Good resort overall. Rooms were quite big and clean, bathrooms were decent and breakfast spread was pretty good.

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
