Historical Sites in Jordan

Petra

Jordan's natural treasure and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the rose city is admired for its massive architecture and ingenious complex dams and water channels, located within a three-hour drive of the hotel.

Dead-Sea

No trip to the region would be complete without the magical sensation of “floating” in the mirage-like Dead Sea. Rich in minerals and salts, and edged with translucent rock salt, this is the world’s deepest salt lake (and the lowest point on earth) at 430 m (1,410 ft) below sea level, located less than an hour’s drive from the hotel.

Jerash

Cobbled streets still bearing the ruts made by Roman cart wheels run the length of the Greco-Roman city of Jerash. A jewel in the Roman Empire at its height, the structures still remain largely intact and are often topped with exquisitely carved Corinthian capitols. Located less than an hour’s drive from the hotel.

Aqaba

An oasis for scuba divers and sun worshippers, Aqaba hosts one of the world’s northernmost coral reefs and a shopping arcade flush with local artisans.
