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.
How to Get There
This hotel is beautiful. What makes it even better is the incredible and detailed service by each and every person working there. They really exceed any expectations!! The perfect retreat as you enter Jordan!
We stayed here for four nights and had a wonderful stay. Close to the centre of town in Aqaba which is rather shabby and has little to do so you can't wait to get back to the luxury of this hotel. Our room was great and the bathroom perfect, great view from the spacious balcony. So many nice touches, turn down service and free minbar (non alcoholic). Pool was lovely and a small beach. The staff who are predominately from the Philippines are professional, friendly and go out of their way to provide excellent customer service. Couldn't fault our stay at this hotel.
