Kempinski Hotel Ishtar
Those fancying a float in the Dead Sea are best off staying at a coastline resort, with luxe accommodation such as the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar offering direct access to the sea’s healing waters and excellent beach club facilities. Post-salty submersion, the sweeping outdoor terrace gives unfettered views of the Dead Sea, complete with the atmospheric haze caused by the hyper-salinity and low elevation of the lake. The hotel spa’s Dead Sea mud treatments are a more refined alternative to the usual DIY mudwrap, and probably more effective at beautifying the complexion.
Rooms start at Dhs700 per night.
