Sweet deals at the Dead Sea
The Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea is offering special rates of JOD196 ($276.8) per night for a superior sea view room, until October 31.
The offer is part of Kempinski’s Hotel of the Month promotion and is inclusive of breakfast and either a salt scrub or mud wrap at the boutique Anantara Spa.
“The Hotel of the Month promotion is a fantastic opportunity for new and returning guests to sample the Kempinski Ishtar Dead Sea experience with a value added package that ensures a truly rejuvenating break,” said Duncan O’Rourke general manager, Kempinski Ishtar Dead Sea, Jordan.
He added, “For GCC residents, the Dead Sea is the ideal destination for a short break or family holiday, with plenty of leisure and adventure activities for everyone.”
The 318-room resort sits directly on the shores of the famed Dead Sea and boasts a luxurious collection of facilities that cater to leisure and business travellers alike. Comprised of the exclusive Ishtar Villas and the main Arabesque style building, the Babylonian inspired hotel provides a truly special experience for guests through a combination of spectacular surroundings and attentive service. For gourmet aficionados there are a variety of restaurants and lounge venues where guests can sample the finest in international and ethnic cuisines. Obelisk Restaurant, Akkad Pool Grill, Ashur Pizza and Grill, The Codes Restaurant, Kish Bar, Sumerian Bar and the Contemplation Tents offer distinct culinary creations suited to every palate.
The Hotel of the Month promotion is the ideal package for guests travelling from the UAE for the weekend, offering a combination of superior accommodation, dining and relaxation.
Rising above the Dead Sea like a Phoenix is the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, ripe with Babylonian-style architecture, lush wandering gardens and azure swimming pools draped over cascading levels as if into infinity.
Within this haven of inspired luxury is the Anantara Spa, a slice of tropical bliss in the midst of a Middle Eastern paradise. Cultivating the freshest and most potent natural ingredients from the shores of the Dead Sea and far off Thailand, the spa boasts a selection of delectable treatments that would sound at home on the menu of a gourmet fusion restaurant.
Exclusively located in one of the elite Royal villas, the five treatment rooms are an exercise in serenity. Unlike other spas where a common relaxation area forces socialization with other spa goers, at the Anantara each treatment room is a dedicated spa suite and includes a private outdoor area, changing room and bathroom for a little extra bliss and privacy.
At present, the boutique spa offers a select service within the Royal Villa, but later this year the Anantara will have expanded to become one of the largest spa complexes in the Middle East encompassing 10,000sqm of holistic wellbeing facilities including 20 treatment rooms, a large studio for Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation and Pilates as well as outdoor therapy lounges, 28 spa suites, Hammam pools, outdoor and indoor Jacuzzi, ice cave, steam room, Ayurveda, Asian therapies and local salt and mud treatments.
The spa will also boast Watsu pools – Watsu is a soothing form of Shiatsu massage that takes place in waist-deep water.
Just a short flight from Dubai, Jordan is the ideal destination for a weekend spa getaway. Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea is offering the Couple Body Symphony package for two at Dh1000 which includes a floral foot bath, Dead Sea Salt Scrub, Aromatic Massage and Thai Herbal Facial, all accompanied by healthy refreshments.
