Overview

Glitzy Red Sea resort curving around a white sand beach with watersports, a spa and buzzy restaurants

The Lowdown

Set on a northern inlet of the Red Sea, this modern property curves around a beach with a floating sports dock for kayaking, parasailing and more. Cool off in a pool with a swim-up bar, kick it in the Jacuzzi or arrange for a lazy sunset cruise. The 201 guest rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, balconies with sea views, predominantly white décor and pale wood floors. Glass-walled bathrooms have deep soaking tubs and rainfall showers. Further relaxation can be found at the Kempinski Spa, which offers organic herbal treatments. The freshest of seafood is available at Fish-In, one of three hotel restaurants.

In the Area

The port town of Aqaba on a northern inlet of the Red Sea offers quality diving with warm water and rich marine life. There’s plenty for history buffs: the big one to check off your Seven Wonders of the World list is the ancient sandstone city of Petra (a two-hour drive north). In town there’s the 12th century Aqaba Fort, which has been added to numerous times over the years, as well as what’s believed to be the oldest purpose-built Christian church, dating back to the late third century. Wadi Rum, 30 miles from town, is known for its stunning cliffs and desert.

Great choice for a relaxed stay in Aqaba and also a family's friendly hotel. Extremelly attentive staff, excellent room service, very good breakfast and a nice beach and pool areas to use and relax. Centrally located for nice walks to downtown and seaside Aqaba.

The hotel is amazing with a beautiful view of the sea . The staff are very welcoming, friendly professional and polite.The buffet breakfast brilliant, we had a light dinner which was lovely. Unfortunately we only had one night here which was the only downside of it.
Would love to return to see our beautiful room. A Big THANK YOU .

We would highly recommend this hotel. The staff are excellent and so welcoming! The pools, spa, buffet breakfast and bars are just what you would expect from a five star hotel. The rooms have a wonderful sea view and are very spacious and comfortable.

A much quieter destination than most Aqaba hotels...basically great service but lack of water slides means its not a hot spot for families. Regardless our family enjoyed it immensely! And they were amazing in catering to our gluten free needs. Highly recommended
