Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, Jordan

Tucked away 400m below sea level at the lowest point on Earth you’ll find Jordan’s Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, which promises to blend nature and history with a truly luxurious holiday experience. Just a stone’s throw from the Dead Sea, the Kempinski has some of the most famous historical sites in the world on its doorstep, including the ancient Roman city of Jerash and the Lost City of Petra, one of the seven wonders of the world.

However, for those wanting to stay within the walls of the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, there is also plenty on offer. Why not take a turn on the hotel’s very own Lazy River, followed up by a relaxing moonlit swim in the beautiful Akkad Infinity Pool?
