Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth and a classic travel bucketlist destination. You won’t want to miss taking an unusual swim in the incredibly salty waters. 

But the Dead Sea isn’t just about floating in the water. This is also a very relaxing destination, as showcased by the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, a large resort set along its own Dead Sea coastline. 

With nine pools and the biggest spa in the Middle East, this can initially seem a behemoth of a hotel. However, while it is not boutique, the resort is large enough to ensure everybody has their own space. 

It’s a wonderful place to relax before or after a longer Jordan trip. And it’s within reach of the country’s other extraordinary travel highlights.
