The perfect Luxury hotel

This is the second time that I stay in a Kempinski hotel. Based on my earlier experience, I was preparing myself for an above average 5 star hotel, both in the richness of facilities and hospitality of staff. But this Dead Sea resort proved me wrong on both fronts!

The receptionist Mr. Hijjawi understood very well what kind of room interests me. I was assigned a room with a balcony on the sixth floor overseeing the grounds of the resort, the Dead Sea and the West Bank. Just sitting on the balcony and enjoying the view and the breeze was enough to transform my mood and ease the tension of several hours of travel and ground transport to the Dead Sea.

The room was spacious and modern. The bed and linens were new and fresh. The room was regularly checked in the evening. The housekeeping staff did their best to make feel at home.

The resort grounds were very beautiful. In the walk down to the beach you pass several areas where the guests can enjoy the scenery. I didn’t have time to swim outdoors, but I think they have at least 4 outdoor pools. I did enjoy the Dead Sea water pool in the Ishtar Spa.

Having visited Dead Sea resorts before, I believe that the Kempinski is by far the most luxurious one.

Lovely Resort. The staff is super courteous and helpful. It's a massive complex resort with a lot of facilities. Swimming pools galore. Nice breakfast and good restaurants. The spa is upmarket and is huge. We were given a free upgrade. The room was fantastic.

I travel a great deal for business so I am all over the globe. The Kempinski is one of the best properties I have stayed in.recently. The service is fantastic, the view gorgeous and my room was very spacious and glam. Everyone was very kind and professional. They make me feel very comfortable and it was more like being in a home than a large resort.

The breakfast buffet is lovely with a large assortment and so fresh & delicious.The nightly belly dancing was fun and being able to sit outside and experience the music with the amazing weather was a plus. .
