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.

Bring your ear plugs. This is a massive 5 star hotel/resort with multiple pools and dining options and two spots for entering the Dead Sea. We went in January when the weather was cool, but warm enough to go in the Dead Sea. The staff are very friendly. The food is great. The

Too far to travel in a day, if you look at a map and if you were the other side of the Dead Sea, you could do it easily in a day, but you need to go around the Sea and over a border to get there.

Does it have a private sweet with a private pool?
The Suites are large...... suggest you select one in the 1500 number range......and there are NINE individual private pools with the Hotel complex. The end result is with nine pools, there is no overcrowding...... exactly the opposite. However, Ivan the guest relations manager will only be too pleased to advise you. This is a highly unusual property and you will be impressed.

if I remember rightly only the main building has open views to the Dead Sea. They have indeed enclosed terraces but you can open the front of the partition en 2 parts.
