Its austere exterior isn't the most attractive (depending on taste of course), but the insides -especially the lobby, breakfast terrace and rooms- are grand in a modern style. The hotel exudes a mood of tranquility, geared towards winding down and luxurious relaxation.... More

Its in the centre of Aqaba. Luxury, comfortable and very good service. Although it was on construction, it didn't bother us much. The best thing is sitting in the bar beside the beach watching sunset and had a glass of wine...One thing important, there is no internet in the room!
