Luxury at the Lowest Point on Earth
What a beautiful and luxurious resort at the Dead Sea. We recently spent 2 nights here at the end of our Jordan vacation and the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar was the perfect place to relax and unwind after our hectic travel schedule. The resort is huge and I'm not sure if it is because it was low season or just because tourism is down all over Jordan, but we practically had the place to ourselves. As a result we were given a nice room upgrade from the main hotel building to one of the villas closer to the pool. The highlight here is the opportunity to float in the Dead Sea. Several hotel employees are on hand to help you into the water as the shore is a little rocky, as well as take photos of you in the water. If you want to be slathered in the black Dead Sea mud, the hotel employees can help you with that as well. You won't want to spend too long in the Dead Sea so once you have rinsed off the mud and salt any of the lovely pools on the property are the perfect place to relax in the sun.
The breakfast buffet was pretty amazing, with so many different choices. The only negative is that you are pretty much restricted to the restaurants at the hotel because there is no town close by. As a result, food is expensive, however everything is high quality.
