Having stayed at Kempinski at other locations before, I knew what I got myself into by choosing Kempinski again. The layout of this resort is so beautiful; there is a private beach and you could spend time floating on the Dead Sea or simply chill in the infinity pool. I had a room with a sea view. The bathroom was... More
