This was a unique experience alone however I imagine I would appreciate the resort a lot more with a group. The hotel was a bit dead and they were nice enough to upgrade me to a villa room, although not facing the sea. Breakfast facing the Dead Sea with a view of Israel across the way..... Nothing beats that. Great...

Is really a nice place to relax yourself and also you can enjoy the quietness, where you are free from your daily work. The room are very clean and all the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very nice and they have lots of variety to choose for.

What can I say. The service here is outstanding. The lady at the front desk was so cheery and friendly. We got a room upgrade and it was spacious and offered a great view of the dead sea. Food and drinks are pricey here so plan to indulge. The included breakfast was abundant and the selection vast (more than I...

One of the best hotels i've ever been to. The theme of the hotel is so beautiful that you actually enjoy walking around the hotel. There are plenty of swimming pools around the hotel which is really nice. The hotel is really clean and neat. My wife never uses hotel towels, she always uses her own, but in Kempinski she...

We booked one night at this hotel and wish we had stayed longer. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite, this might have had something to do with the fact that the second room was only available close to 16h00. The suite was impressive and the closed verandah a lovely idea. There was a smell that permeated through the hotel...

Maybe our expectations were too high, but when we were paying considerably more than neighbouring hotels, we expected a higher quality. We have stayed in two of the neighbouring hotels and unfortunately this just didn't compare.

The Kempinski Hotel Ishtar gives you the opportunity to enjoy its riches where Queen of Sheba and Cleopatra once strived to unravel mystery.

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
