In a region unlike any other, hidden away for centuries in the cradle of time and located 400 metres below sea level, nature and history have so wonderfully conspired to create the backdrop of the Kempinski Ishtar.
Offering three luxurious enclaves set amidst gardens dotted with lagoons, waterfalls and private pools, where ancient olive trees mingle with bamboo palms, Kempinski Ishtar provides guests with absolute privacy in a serene and exclusive setting.
Designed in affectionate tribute to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the resort is built with local stone and boasts 345 rooms and suites designed with tasteful contemporary decor that weaves clean and simple lines into a stylish Arabesque setting. All rooms and suites benefit from stunning views of the Dead Sea and spacious patios or balconies – the perfect place to enjoy the region’s dramatic sunsets.
From celestial heights to the lowest point of dry land on Earth, the Dead Sea region is conducive to creating an authentic spa environment and provides a perfect complement to the hotel’s Anantara Spa. The ozone and oxygen-rich air, low pollution and the Dead Sea’s mineral rich waters and sea mud are renowned throughout history for their naturally therapeutic healing properties. Spa treatments use elixirs and oils made from the freshest indigenous ingredients, earthy tonics such as skin-nourishing mud from the Dead Sea and natural volcanic pumice to restore your entire being to perfect balance while delighting all of your senses.
