Paradise on Jordan's Red Sea

InterContinental Aqaba Beach Resort
Aqaba, Jordan

The luxurious amenities at the InterContinental Aqaba Beach Resort include one of Jordan’s largest freshwater pools.

This five-star resort hotel is located long the Red Sea coastline, with exceptional views of the Gulf of Aqaba and within walking distance of the city center.

HOK’s primary design goal was to create a distinctive brand experience. Cues were taken from the surrounding landscape, including the rocks of Petra and Wadi Rum, coral reefs and the sea. Water features, stone finishes and a deep, rich color palette highlight the contemporary interior, which is enhanced with design references to local arts, crafts and building traditions.

The hotel offers its guests five themed restaurants that feature an array of international dining experiences, as well as a health spa, a children’s center, a retail arcade, meeting and conference facilities and a large ballroom/convention facility.
