Boasting tree-lined outdoor pools overlooking the waters of the Dead Sea, the 5-star Kempinski features a private stretch of beach and a spa offering sea mud and sea salt treatments. Home-made pasta, Lebanese dishes and signature chocolate desserts and watermelon granites are served at Kempinski Ishtar’s restaurants. Try a drink at the Babylonian-inspired cocktail bar, or enjoy a whiskey and cigar at the lounge bar. Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea offers rooms set among palm trees and olive groves. All rooms and suites come with a balcony with sea views. They are carved in natural stone complemented by contemporary details. Guests can refresh in the 9 freshwater pools, or relax in the spa with traditional Thai massages or hammam sessions. The state-of-the-art fitness center has personal trainers available on request, and yoga and meditation classes are on offer. The closest airport is Queen Alia, about 43 mi away, and private parking is available on site. Due to health and safety precautions we do not allow any food and beverages including alcohol, from outside the hotel to be consumed in the hotel.
