Kempinski to manage beachfront property in Aqaba


Kempinski is set to manage a luxurious resort on the Red Sea, on the Jordanian side, due to open in December 2008.

The Kempinski Hotel Aqaba Jordan is being developed by the United Saudi Jordanian Hotels & Tourism Company, who also own the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, due to open in early 2006. This will be Kempinski’s third hotel under management in Jordan, after the group opened its first property, the Kempinski Hotel Amman earlier this year.
Located in an oasis of calm on the shores of the Red Sea and set within three acres of lush gardens, the resort will feature 216 rooms, suites and cabanas set throughout the grounds. All rooms and suites within the hotel will enjoy sea views, which is possible due to its curved modern structure. The hotel will offer a variety of international and regional dining options, including a Club Lounge and large deck with panoramic views over the Red Sea, as well as an exclusive nightclub. A wellness centre and spa can be accessed from the guest floors with a separate elevator and a shopping arcade will house several exclusive boutiques.
