Marc Guenther Named General Manager for Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, Jordan


The new general manager of Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, Jordan, has been recently appointed: Marc Guenther, a German national, is now at the helm of the hotel at the lowest point on Earth. Joining the luxury hotel after his most recent assignment as General Manager at The Regency Hotel Kuwait, the hotelier holds more than 25 years of experience acquired in various luxury hotels around the world. Not new to Kempinski, Marc has managed several Kempinski hotels in different countries, such as Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Red Sea, in Jordan, and Kempinski Hotel Indonesia Jakarta, in addition to other hotel brands, including Hilton.

Henk Meyknecht, Chief Operations Officer Kempinski Hotels Middle East & Africa, stated: “Marc is an experienced hospitality professional, already familiar with Kempinski and Jordan, and we trust that he will further drive the success of Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea.”

Kempinski Hotel Ishtar, the leading hotel in the Dead Sea, is currently improving its facilities and services to always exceed the expectations of its guests. Promising development plans are upcoming: the addition of Inanna Terrace, the newest outdoor venue, featuring panoramic views of the Dead Sea and perfect for hosting impressive weddings and social events, which will be ready by September 2018; and the upgrade of the luxurious Ishtar Royal Villas, making them the epitome of luxury in the Dead Sea, in addition to a new Lebanese restaurant, which will be complementing the diverse culinary adventures in the hotel and will also be ready next year.

Upon arrival, Marc Guenther commented: “I am delighted to be back in Jordan and to be part of the highly professional team of the iconic Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea. I look forward to continuing the success of this flagship hotel, working on developing more talents, craftsmanship and implementing innovative concepts that will not only promote the hotel as a unique destination in the Dead Sea, but also feature Jordan as an exceptional touristic country in the Middle East.”
