We stayed here during ramadan so got a special rate, however I would definitely pay normal price for this wonderful place, even if it is pricey. Everything about this place lives up to its 5* billing. The service is great (for Jordan) and all the little touches make it a truly wonderful experience. The rooms are spacious with a complimentary...

Staying at the Kempinski Ishtar was such a great experience and I highly recommend it. Very high quality service from employees and front desk at all times. One of the nice things about this hotel is the fact that it is not massively huge; so you can go around to the sea and the rooms without needing to walk alot....

Highly recommended. Special thanks to all the employee especially Mr. Natheer Hijjawi. I also recommend to try the Ashtar Spa with all the facilities. The breakfast was great too, with a lot of varieties. Bedroom was clean and big enough with a lovely view.

Had a mixed experience at this hotel. For a 5* and the price It could have been better. The biggest gripe I had was the staff at the Dead Sea beach. I found them really rude and not attentive to client needs. There are no deck chairs at the beach either you have to leave your belongings on the benches....

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
