This hotel is so large it is disorienting. There are many pools but only two are really nice: the long family pool and the round pool for over 14. The over-14 pool and the baby pool are the heated pools. My kids enjoyed the long pool. When we checked into the hotel, it felt like the receptionist just wanted to...

Feels a bit like the hotel has been built in several waves. It takes a good 20min to walk from the reception to the dead sea. The hotel is extremely big, there is no central walkway and finding your way is more by luck than by logic. We got a room with a view of the dead sea which was...

First i will say the hotel is lovely. Clean, nice overlook at dead sea, great pool area with free towels and water. Good staff in the pool area, and by the dead sea. Always enough mud. We had a junior suite with acces almost right out to a pool in the main building. Arriving before check in time, so we...

We stayed here on the last night of a week long tour around Jordan. We were looking forward to 2 days of luxury and relaxation after a busy week. Upon check in we learned that 2 gigantic weddings were taking place that evening (our travel agent was not informed of this in advance). Any rooms away from the weddings were...

The hotel itself seems to be cold at the first sight but the welcoming and the services are great. The infinity pool is cool and our child could have fun in the other pools. It would be awesome if the spa could be free of charge for the guests as it is quite expensive. we will go back!

My son and I stopped off here before and after going to Petra. I arranged collection from the airport and transport to Petra through this hotel and it all went perfectly. The staff here are friendly and excellent. It was out of season so very quiet but you could tell the quality of the hotel. There is direct access to...

Staying here was like travelling on a roller coaster: there were many ups and downs. Positives: beautiful property, breakfast, fabulous pool areas, great views, lovely rooms and, of course, access to the Dead Sea. Negatives: poor service, rip-off prices and low-quality food. Luxury hotels generally provide exceptional service - in my experience, this is what sets them apart from the...

Stayed in this hotel in a superior room facing Dead sea in the main building. The view was amazing. Though my Brother-in-law got a room upgrade (a suite), we didn't get any. But I was happy with my room. Breakfast has good options with veggies and with so many cake selection. The best part of hotel is the premium service...

We stayed here many times between 2013 & 2016 and loved it! Highly recommended for food and relax as well as the Dead Sea beach area. Rooms are great especially the ones on the sea front. We loved the Italian restaurant in particular

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
