Aqaba restaurant opens

Last month Mövenpick Resort and Residence Aqaba opened its new contemporary Palm Court all day dining restaurant after undergoing major renovations.
Designed by Sirin Masri of Nilaya Studios, the Palm Court Restaurant will offer guests an elegant modern atmosphere, ambient music and more than 220 seats. It can be divided into three sections, one of which provides a private dining experience ideal for medium to small groups.
 During warmer months, the Palm Court will open an outdoor dining area, giving guests the opportunity to eat outdoors while enjoying the beautiful scenery and weather of Aqaba.
Open daily from 6 am to midnight, the outlet will offer à la carte dining and a buffet set up with live cooking stations for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  The hotel’s chefs will offer a selection of gourmet Lebanese, Asian, grill and pasta stations specially tailored to each person’s preference and palate.
Mövenpick Resort and Residence Aqaba is wholly owned by Zara Investment (Holding) Company, established in 1994 as a public shareholding company. The principal activities of the company as a holding company are to manage its subsidiaries which operate in the tourism sector and which have built hotels in various parts of Jordan. The hotel portfolio of Zara includes; Hotel Intercontinental Jordan, Grand Hyatt Amman, Mövenpick Resort and Spa Dead Sea, Mövenpick Resort and Residence Aqaba, the Mövenpick Resort Petra and Mövenpick Nabatean Castle.
In addition the company is in the final stages of developing a seventh five star hotel in Aqaba at Tala Bay. Other non core activities of the company include owning and managing companies serving the hospitality industry. Today Zara Investment is the largest hospitality company in Jordan. It controls approximately 31 per cent of the Hashemite Kingdom’s total room inventory of five star hotels.
