Great Experience

The Very Best in Hotel Experiences
The hotel was amazing. The facilities were excellent and the staff were very attentive. From Qais at the check-in desk to Su at the Codes restaurant, I felt that I was in a home away from home. Ivan from guest services was an additional positive that made sure that all my needs were met. The hookah waiter, Islam, at the Akkad Pool grill made the experience delightful. And finally, Ibrahim, Vina, and Florine made the dining experience first rate. I have stayed at many hotels, but not many have made me feel like I was truly the only guest in the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel and the Kempinski chain of hotels, and that is saying a lot considering I am a die hard Intercontinental Hotel fan.

1st time at Kempinski Dead Sea hotel
My family and I have visited Kempinski during August,2018 for three nights. We booked junior suites in the main building. They were so clean and have private terrace with partially Dead Sea views. The facilities were so amazing, where we used to spend our day time. Fascinating outdoor pools with the infinity views during sunset! I would like to thank AKKAD pool for the spectacular service they have for the swimmers and sun bathers. There is a private beach with helpful team where you can experience the Dead Sea mud on your body. The hotel staff is so friendly, the fastest check in & out I’ve ever experienced. Food! We were only enjoying the breakfast buffet provided by the hotel. Restaurants have different meals but unfortunately with no value and overpriced. For night life, actually there were no clubs inside the hotel,only bars that usually sleep early. Restaurants were offering shows of belly dancing and small band. Thank you Kempinski!
