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.

The hotel was truly amazing and luxurious with a lot of love. People are very friendly and helpful. May in the Italian restaurant was magnificent. Also Salah was truly amazing. Zaher in the breakfast area went above and beyond and made the trip 100 times better. His coworker Yahya was very friendly and Omar just made it perfect. Juliet suggested all the food and was very knowledgeable and professional. The hotel makes your Jordan trip truly epic. If you want an amazing Jordan experience try this hotel the only downside it makes other hotels seem mediocre.

I visited the hotel on new years eve and I had a great time with friends but we had a problem with our booking, at first on the phone they said the dinner time is from 9pm to 11pm and I alone arrived at 7 and at the check in they told me the dinner time has changed to 6pm to 9pm so my friends were coming at 9pm so they couldn't catch the dinner time, so I had to change my reservation to without dinner and they raised the rate on me about 50jd and the guy name was Nour Hijawi I went to him so he could help me because they told me he was the reception manager but he made it even harder for me and the check in took me about an hour and a half plus his behaviour was really tough, so I thought my new years eve was going to be horrible but the other staff was amazing and they really helped and showed us some good times, and other thing I'd like to mention that when my friends arrived at 8:45 we took the dinner with us and the price was unbelievable it was 140 only for two persons, finally the id live to say that it was a good trip but you need to emprove the reception staff specially the manager Mr. Nour Hijawi Thank you.
