The hotel is located right in front of the Dead Sea. They even have people at the water front who will cover you with Dead Sea mud for free (that was an experience on its own). Rooms, restaurants and facilities are awesome. The infinity pool is heated so even in winter time is welcoming. The gym has amazing equipment with...

This hotel is both very beautiful and very comfortable. Right by the dead sea it has the most incredible sunset view from the terrace. The very friendly guys down at the water suggest the bathing and mud ritual and you even get a massage! The spa was the most beautiful spa I have ever seen. The hammam treatment was spectacular!

The drive into Ishtar was spectacular through the mountains. From Madaba we hardly saw another car as we wound around the isolated and circuitous route through the mountains. Dropping down from the altitude we hit the main highway, a police check and then a row of grand hotels hugging the edge of the Dead Sea. Our checkin at Kempinski was...

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
