Discover a lesser-known side of Jordan. On this eight-day journey, you’ll explore the extraordinary Lost City of Petra (without the crowds), snorkel in the Red Sea and sleep under the stars at a luxury glamping site in the desert. But not before the chance to tuck into authentic Arabic street food in Amman, sip local wines and explore the ancient Roman ruins of Jerash. You’ll also learn to cook Jordanian-style, kick up some dust on a 4x4 tour of Wadi Rum and soak your weary limbs in the purifying waters of the Dead Sea. Avid adventurers, this trip is made for you.
The rooftop pool, suspended high above the Amman rooftops, is a real highlight at this boutique hotel. Sleep off your jetlag in a comfortable plush room with floor-to-ceiling windows allowing natural light to flood in. End the day with a nightcap at the open-air bar.
A comfortable, contemporary hotel just 150m from the entrance to Petra. The highlight is the roof terrace, where during the day you can swim laps of the large pool to desert views, and by night you can sip cocktails beneath the star-studded sky.
This desert ‘camp’, tucked away in a sheltered rocky canyon, takes glamping to the next level – tents are furnished like standalone hotel suites, with a King Bed, air-conditioning and an ensuite bathroom with a shower. We particularly love the onsite shisha cafe built into the cliffside.
Sink your toes into the private sandy beach, just in front of the InterContinental Aqaba. This luxury resort occupies a prime position on Jordan’s Red Sea. Plush rooms include sea view balconies as standard. Head down to the circular beachfront bar for sundowners and nibbles.
Mujib Chalet Village sits on the shores of the Madash peninsula with uninterrupted views of the Dead Sea. Chalets are modern and comfortable with twin rooms, shady sun terraces and private bathrooms. They are a short distance from the entrance to the Mujib canyon.
