The Luxury Collection has welcomed the opening of its first property in Jordan.
Developed by Eagle Hills Jordan, the 207-room Al Manara, a Luxury Collection Hotel, is in the heart of Aqaba’s newest beachside destination, Saraya Aqaba.
It offers guests a contemporary luxury experience in a setting that merges Jordan’s rich heritage and history through traditional architecture, sumptuous décor and magnificent surroundings.
“The Luxury Collection is thrilled to continue its rapid, global expansion with the opening of Al Manara, the brand’s first hotel in Jordan,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, the Luxury Collection.
“As a culturally rich Jordanian port city, the destination is a perfect gateway for discerning travellers to experience this part of the Middle East through the lens of the Luxury Collection.
“We are always looking for new and uncharted areas of the world to explore and share with our experienced travellers.
“The opening of Al Manara is yet another example of the brand’s commitment to delivering authentic travel experiences to our guests.”
The opening of Al Manara Hotel is the second collaboration between Marriott International and Eagle Hills Jordan, following the debut of W Amman earlier this year.
An additional two hotel collaborations will follow with the slated opening of The St. Regis Amman and The Westin Saraya Aqaba in the coming months.
The new Al Manara is inspired by charming Middle Eastern tales and embodies sophisticated luxury and rich heritage.
Nestled between Aqaba’s rose-red mountains and overlooking the pristine Gulf of Aqaba, the hotel’s unmistakable architecture features arabesque motifs, invoking the unique and colossal beauty of the country.
Each of the 207 rooms at Al Manara, including 43 suites and two villas, feature inviting balconies and floor to ceiling windows with views of the Red Sea and striking mountain ranges.
