The Luxury Collection debuts its first property in Jordan


The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, announced the opening of Al Manara, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Saraya Aqaba, its first property in the Kingdom of Jordan.

Developed by Eagle Hills Jordan, the 207-room hotel is located in the heart of Aqaba’s newest beachside destination, Saraya Aqaba.

Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Marriott International Middle East and Africa said: “The opening of Al Manara Hotel marks the entry of The Luxury Collection brand to Jordan and the first Marriott International luxury property in Aqaba; ‘The Jewel of the Red Sea’.” He continued: “We look forward to offering global explorers new and authentic travel experiences alongside warm Jordanian hospitality.”

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 partnerships will follow with the slated opening of The St. Regis Amman and The Westin Saraya Aqaba in the coming months.

The main dining venue Taybeh Al Manara, serves northern Mediterranean cuisine with an international flair, with talented chefs preparing fresh specialties at live cooking stations, alongside an efficient a la carte service. Kubba Levantin, a casually elegant Middle Eastern restaurant, offers a journey of flavors from the Levant with an emphasis on local fresh produce and spices. The outer terrace overlooking Saraya Aqaba’s lagoon is sure to become a favorite spot for hotel residents and discerning Aqabites alike, drawn by highlights such as the charcoal grill and traditional bread oven and special tasting menus with paired beverages. Al Manara’s waterfront bar and restaurant Amwaj will serve the freshest seafood from the Red Sea alongside an international fish selection unrivalled in Aqaba, with a special smoked fish menu with cocktail pairings.
