“Exactly what you expect in a Kempinski Hotel”
Reviewed 18 July 2007

Professional and perfect! Immaculate property, impeccable service, wonderful location on the waterfront. The staff did anything and everything to make my stay perfect. Need a suit pressed within 30 minutes? No problem. Want a snack at the beach? They're one step ahead of you.

This is a great hotel also for conferences and / or incentives especially due to it's perferct location next to the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center.

Amazing property, excellent service and outstanding rooms. This is what we are expecting form a 5star luxury hotel. Even the staff helped me out with a lot of things and organised an wonderful trip to Petra - they have been always so helpful - bravo to the Kempinski Team - well done!



  • Liked — the entire hotel complex
  • Disliked — due to the size of the complex, it takes more time to get from A to B

I stayed at this lovely property from July 6th - 11th, 2007 and it has been a great time. This huge but nice designed property is an oasis of silence and recovery. The rooms are spacious and have a nice
view to the Dead Sea. The staff is very service orientated and friendly.

This place is outstanding!

The property is just a few years old - everything is in exceptional condition. The rooms are huge - the bathroom alone is pretty much the size of my NYC apartment.

What really stands out is the professional and discreet "old-world" service. You don't even need to mention anything - it seems as if the servers/bellmen etc. were reading our mind....

If you travel to Jordan this hotel is a must....BTW: When I checked in, the King of Jordan just left from a relaxing lunch in one of their restaurants.....

Saw the hotel under construction some years ago and thought I'd like to stay here when it's done. Well, that's what I did and the stay was great!

Was actually staying for a Conference in the nearby conference centre.

Who ever comes to the Dead Sea of course goes to the beach, however, the hotel has plenty of pools, some bigger some smaller and even private ones for the villas. Nice gym, great food - especially the Italian Restaurant.

A short trip to Petra is a MUST although the 600 steps up the hill there are a killer for your legs...

Will surely come back for an extended weekend to escape busy Dubai.

  • Liked — Great Suites, plenty of pools, great food and the fact that it is not as hot as Dubai in the Summer
  • Disliked — That I was here alone for business :-)
