Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, Dead Sea

The moon hangs like a balloon as you walk along a marbled promenade, between illuminated palm trees. Is this romance, or the effect of 1000 years of history?

Hidden away, in a region completely unlike any other in the world, lies the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar. At 400 metres below sea level it enjoys a unique setting, where nature and history conspire together to bring you a wonderful experience. Definitely one of the most memorable destinations on any luxury, tailor-made holiday to Jordan.

Especially as the luxury Kempinski Hotel Ishtar features a choice of enticing Celestial Pools and private beaches, as well as a luxury modern spa standing on the shore of the world’s oldest natural spa – the mineral-rich Dead Sea with its ozone and oxygen rich atmosphere! Set below sea level, the Ishtar also has some of the world’s lowest haute cuisine – a choice of refined restaurants and bars with eclectic food and brilliant views over the sea itself.
