Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea is thrilled to announce the completion of its 1.5 million dollars renovation project for the Ishtar Royal Villas, the only luxury villas in Jordan, offering a new enriching travel experience at the shore of the Dead Sea.

The Ishtar Royal Villas at Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea are the perfect retreat for those seeking the ultimate luxury and private getaways. It is the ideal sanctuary to relax and indulge in the magnificent views across the Dead Sea, the world’s largest natural spa, which is quite literally on your doorstep. Whether you choose to enjoy the views from your own private infinity-edge swimming pool, outdoor whirlpool or, best of all, on the beach of the Dead Sea, the choice is yours.

“The renovation of the Ishtar Royal Villas enables us to create a new opportunity to design for a luxury experience that is uniquely situated on the shore of the Dead Sea, embedded with Kempinski’s creative offerings and, most importantly, surrounded by the Dead Sea’s wealth of natural beauty,” says Marc Guenther, General Manager.

The designers took inspiration from the Babylonian architectural concept of the hotel and paired it with a streamlined contemporary approach to suit all tastes. Embedded with a homey feeling, relaxing yet luxurious, the different colour schemes of both villas have been chosen to integrate the Dead Sea soil and beach patterns to immerse the elegance of the architecture with the natural beauty of this unique destination.

The newly renovated Royal Villas are housed over two open-air floors with a skyline ceiling and oak-wood walls decorated with beautiful patterns to immerse in the overall ambiance. The Villa also boasts three master bedrooms, all with ensuite marble bathrooms featuring deep soaking bathtubs and separate glass-enclosed showers. Also, there are two glass-fronted living rooms with access to large terraces overlooking the Dead Sea; a dining room for up to 12 guests with panoramic view of the Dead Sea and connected to a fully equipped kitchen; outdoor deck with an infinity-edge pool and whirlpool; a garden; and a state-of-the-art entertainment system throughout – you can even listen to your favourite music in surround sound outside whilst having a dip in the pool or relaxing on the beach. Needless to say, a wide variety of personalised services are available to cater to your every need and prepare your special preferences on request. The Royal Villa also provides guests with their own private wellness area. Our personal masseuse will whisk you off for a complimentary massage in the privacy of your own treatment room. Other facilities include a steam room, sauna and shower room.

The award-winning Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea lies gracefully on the shores of the world’s oldest natural spa – the Dead Sea – set amidst gardens dotted with lagoons, waterfalls and private pools. A true haven of wellness and ancient olive trees mingle with palm trees in a most fantastic and stylish fashion. Designed in affectionate tribute to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Kempinski Hotel Ishtar features 345 rooms and suites within a stylish Arabesque monument building that weaves clean and simple lines into an Arabian theme.

For a more luxurious and exclusive stay, the hotel offers Ishtar Villas designed with a tasteful contemporary decor. The hotel also features one of the largest spas in the Middle East at 10’000 sqm. For bookings, click here
