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...

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
