What can I say?! The check in was very smooth and professional, and the staff is very helpful in a way they act proactively to satisfy you before you even request. A manager is always roaming the hotel asking the visitors about the stay and if they need anything or if having any comments, and in our stay there was... More

I Love this hotel!!! Their rooms are gorgeous with a private pool in the terrace! Excellent service ! Good restaurants! Their infinity pool is so beautiful! I have nothing negative to say! And you can walk to the Movenpick and Mariott next door to change atmosphere as there is no entertainment at the hotel in the evening. Very quiet and... 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
