This hotel is near the northern tip of the Dead Sea and is about 40 minutes away from the international airport. Hotel lobby, environment, grounds are excellent. Our room was a Junior Suite and is also very good but not quite the best we've stayed in for a Kempinski. The hotel has no shortage of very very nice swimming pools for you to enjoy in the grounds leading down to the Dead Sea.
Whilst the "beach" is very rocky, the hotel has placed 2 steps with handrails leading down to the water. The Dead Sea is an incredible experience and the waters are actually quite clean and clear. One could float on the sea with absolutely no effort whatsoever - awesome sensation !
The service from the hotel staff especially the Concierge is truly second to none - they were extremely courteous. knowledgable and helpful even BEFORE we checked into the hotel (we had asked for all kinds of information to plan our trip to Jordan) - congratulations to the hotel management for having such great staff. One of their recommendations and arrangements was for us to visit the Ma'In springs and spa which was EXCELLENT - more on this spa in another review.

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.
