Kempinski signs up for Amman hotel

The Kiragan Palace Kempinski in Istanbul, Turkey.

Kempinski Hotels & Resorts has signed the management contract for a new-build hotel, located in the centre of Amman in Jordan, which will open during 2004. 

The Kempinski Hotel Amman is a complex comprising five restaurants, a health centre, shopping mall, car park, two cinemas and a bowling alley, as well as sports and leisure facilities. 

Amman is the capital of Jordan and houses almost half of the country’s population. It is a vibrant city with its unique history, culture and ancient monuments.  The hotel will be a convenient base for doing business, as well as being a perfect launch-pad from which to visit the many leisure attractions and cultural sites that Jordon has to offer, among which will be Kempinski’s sister resort hotel on the Dead Sea, The Kempinski Ishtar Resort Hotel & Spa, which will open around the same time.

  •  Kempinski Hotels & Resorts has also won the management contract for a hotel being built in N’Djamena, the capital city of Chad in Africa. 

    The Kempinski Sahel & Sahara Hotel is situated next to the parliament buildings.
    The 185 luxury rooms and suites render this new property suitable for delegations and international conferences as well as for individual travellers doing business in the region. The opening is scheduled for early 2004.

    The Kempinski Sahel & Sahara Hotel will have 164 deluxe rooms, each with private balcony and luxury amenities, 10 ambassador suites, 10 presidential suites and one royal suite. 

    There will be three restaurants with a choice of Italian and International cuisine with an Oriental restaurant on the top floor offering breathtaking views over the city. 

  • Kempinski Hotels & Resorts is to manage the Kilimanjaro Hotel, which is currently being gutted and will undergo a full renovation and redesign to re-open by 2005 as a deluxe five-star property with around 190 rooms and suites.  Known by locals as ‘The Kili’, this hotel is a landmark in the city, a reminder of the region’s colonial heritage and a favoured meeting place of discerning locals as well as visitors to the town.
