The pinnacle of the accommodation options are the two Ishtar Royal Villas, which feature three master bedrooms, two livings rooms and a private dining room and an amazing location right on the beachfront
  • Location
    Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea is situated on the edge of the famous sea, the lowest point on earth, and provides uninterrupted views across the vast sea towards Israel and access to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, including religious sites and majestic countryside. Accessible via car from Amman, and in close proximity to the vast Wadi Rum desert, it’s an easy escape for those in the region.
  • Food and Drink
    Dining options within the grounds are delightful, and of unrelenting quality. The flagship Obelisk Restaurant is a fusion of international cuisine mixed with oriental charm, brought to life in a natural environment that embraces views of the Dead Sea. For something a little more laid back, there is the Ashur Pizza & Grill restaurant that thrives in its poolside setting and delivers gourmet Italian dishes alongside a wide selection of wines.
  • Leisure
    Leisure facilities at the hotel centre around a collection of celestial pools that include a stunning private beach, infinity pools, a lazy river pool and a sunken pool, each adding up to a calming and inviting experience, no matter what your preference. The majestic water features are complemented by a fully equipped fitness centre, a tennis court and even a hair salon. The highlight though is clearly The Ishtar Spa by Resense, where the rich mineral sea water and famous Dead Sea mud are used to provide first class treatments in a luxurious setting.
