Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea has completed its US$1.5m renovation project for the Ishtar Royal Villas in Jordan. 

The designers were inspired by the Babylonian architectural concept of the hotel, which they paired with a streamlined contemporary approach. The different colour schemes of both villas have been chosen to integrate the Dead Sea soil and beach patterns. 

The newly renovated Royal Villas are housed over two open-air floors with a skyline ceiling and oak-wood walls decorated with intricate patterns.

It offers three master bedrooms, all with en-suite marble bathrooms featuring deep bathtubs and separate glass-enclosed showers.
