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.

Just returned from unforgetable stay in Aqaba. Modern facilities, big rooms with Red Sea View. Sandy clean beach. Very good service and attention of employees every moment. Nice Christmas tree and decorations. Good food for breakfast and dinner, big variety: especially I liked lamb dishes... The only slightly negative impression - coffee quality during breakfast. We complained, then it improved, but.... But you can get sparkling wine during breakfast complimentary. Bars in the rooms are filled with soft drinks every day. The prices for alcohol are very high, you may go to the town and find cheaper places ( e.g. Buffalo...). Everybody speaks English, so you get advises and help immediately. Especially surprised by excellent internet quality. Ordered the driver with the van to Petra, everything was good. It's really a safe and nice place for high quality holiday. December is really warm for Nordic people, but it's not a season, less people, no music in the restaurant (I read that in summer there is live music). Plus that it's more quiet.

Memorable experience

Service needs help

Having just stayed at The Kempinski Dead Sea, I expected the same high standards of service, which we did not get.

The property is at a great location and it’s clean with good facilities.

The breakfast service is terrible. The staff are Grimm and the not ready to help. Our omelettes were burnt (and one had egg shell) not the level you would expect from a luxury hotel.

I wished I had ended my holiday at Kempinski Dead Sea. This hotel feels like the tired sister hotel.
