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.

Worst hotel ever-scandal
Reviewed 1 day ago

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel, this was the worst experiance ever. The first room they gave to us was smeeling toillette, to change the room we waited 2h. First night i found big piece of plastic yesss plastic in my cake. Then in the morning i found big piece of STONE. Yess stone inside of kind of brade with spinach. And the hotel by himself never deserve 5 stars. Furniture is tooooo old, dont look the picture what they put in internet... so old and dirty furniture. After all what happened we waited minumum to dont pay the food which i nearly broke my teeth... but when we were check off at the reception, asian women which is responsible came and say to the man in the reseption to let pay us everything... ohhh, its really so far away from the standart of 5 starts and worth for your money. Go to the intercontinantal just beside which is more nice beach and more calm... Becouse at kempinski we had music everynight and many kids that u cant enjoy the swimming pool and beach... anyway only good part of this hotel was to go away from it... never again

The best in Aqaba so far
Reviewed 5 days ago

All rooms are sea view rooms, white sand beach (could be the only one in Aqaba), great rooms and service, pools are very innovative in design for families with kids, outdoor Jacuzzi available until 10 pm. Breakfast might need some innovation.

The best 👍🏻

Excellant hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I visited this hotel a couple of days ago with family. The hotel is excellant. Very good service. Staff are always smiling! I would like to give credits to the bell boy who I think is named Anas as he is always smiling and to the three men on the reception who are Ali, Nasser and Majd.

We had a lovely stay and we for sure do not mind repeating it! I highly recommend this hotel as its staff is always willing to help and facilities are amazing. Thumbs up!
