By far the most luxurious hotel I have ever stayed at in decades of international travel! My husband and I felt like royalty-- the staff was available and helpful for any request as soon as we needed something, and incredibly helpful. The grounds are to die for-- none of the pools were too crowded for us to enjoy reading beside,...

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
