Kempinski open hotel on shores of Dead Sea

Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea The new Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea (named after a Babylonian goddess) sits on the shores of a sea in which no-one will ever swim or splash. For millennia, the high salt and mineral content of the Dead Sea has attracted travellers in search of cures and beauty – of which a potent ingredient is floating in the sea – but never swimming. This beautiful, new hotel will allow you to sample some of what Jordan has to offer – that’s assuming you get beyond the confines of the hotel and its beautiful gardens littered with waterfalls, a lagoon and private pools.
