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.

Hotel's Favorite
A colossal property with an amazing architecture. Apart from the two infinity pools there’s a basin type pool that is temperature controlled and another pool named “Lazy River” that runs across the property. In addition to the hotel spa, we were given a 5-star mud bath and a salt scrub including a dead sea bath by “Jalal and Eid”, which instantly makes your skin soft like butter and relaxes your body and soul. The hotel captures magnificent Sunsets with two gorgeous views, thanks to another extremely helpful soul Waleed, who went out of the way to help us around the pool and also providing invaluable tips on how to get better sunset pictures from two different places. Cleanliness & Safety • Round the clock staff who are responsible for this make sure that all areas of the hotel meet its quality of cleanliness, rooms are cleaned everyday by default and if for any case the “Do Not Disturb” sign is attached to the door, then the staff will have to be requested for cleaning. • Special thanks to Ivan who made us welcomed and cared while providing us a good history of the hotel and the country. Many thanks to his hospitality and special attention tendered to us during the breakfast. Food • Had a continental buffet on both days with a good international spread, which was arranged in the main restaurant. Another special thanks to Era and Desire who looked after us and made us feel special. • In room dining is possible but expensive, as this includes service charge and taxes. • We had dinner from two restaurants, one was Rehan (Lebanese), which had extraordinary Mixed Grill and a mouth-watering lamb dish named Uzi. Thanks to Hassan who made the special recommendation. • The other is Mediterranean restaurant which has huge portions of pasta and beef lasagne. Accommodation • If you are requesting for a Sea View room, I guess you have to have to villas in the beach front with rooms on the top. Rooms 2301 and 2303 seems to have a better view. • We got a deluxe room which was facing the lazy river swimming pool and the distance view of the Dead Sea. Best request for the lower rooms such as 2701/2703/2601 where you get to enjoy the direct access to the pool with an outdoor private lounge. Value for money: • Value for money was satisfying regarding all aspects of the hotel. However, if you are taking a package, we recommend obtaining a Half-board package. Facilities • All rooms had a Dental Kit, Sanity Kit, toiletries, towels, bath robes and Bed Room Slippers. • Tea/coffee and Creamer are also placed in the villas and more could be requested if necessary with unlimited water supply. • Every room comes with a TV and Hot/Cold water for showers. A safe keeping facility is also available to be used to keep your valuables safe. WIFI is also provided for every room and it is superfast. • Hotel provides a buggy car service to get around facility faster and Basem was helpful and gave us an extended tour on the invaluable collection of olive trees where some of them are older than 700 years. Finally has to thank the Guest Relations Managers, Era and Ivan who were extraordinarily helpful and polite. Truly, top class and they made a good stay even better.

The dinner buffet was very bad, taste and quality, i expected an ordinary dinner with 65 JD for two people, when i asked for something to drink they told us we have to pay for soft drinks as well. A very bad experience. The room was very clean and the staff at the pool were very friendly and helpful.
