Very professional hotel with high levels of security. Interestingly, the staff we found to be the most exceptional were the guys on the golf carts who welcomed and farewelled us so warmly that it gave this big resort a heart.

The staff is very attentive, the hotel beautiful and clean, the pools are amazing and the dead sea at your feet. We had dinner by the pool at the Ashur restaurant, it was perfect, with a thousand stars above us. They have the best lemon-mint frozen drinks.

I really cannot believe a colleague highly recommended this hotel! We'll be having words! My room is straight out of the 1970s. Never good. The terrace overlooking the sea is weird, closed in, with wooden windows. If you sit down, you can't actually see out! Who designed that? It is so unattractive and unwelcoming I can't imagine anyone sitting there.... More

This is a really beautiful hotel situated on the Dead Sea Jordan. Stayed for 2 nights - probably enough for most visitors as too far from Petra, Jerash etc. Check-in very efficient - upgraded to a Junior Suite (main building). Large modern room with king size bed, complimentary bar (soft drinks) and free WiFi. Bathroom was ultra modern with bath,... More

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
