Wadi Rum

Colossal mountains rise up to almost 1,700 m (5,547.4 ft) from an endless blanket of golden sand and empty space in the desert untouched for thousands of years. Wadi Rum is Jordan’s best-kept secret and an unforgettable, charming and unspoiled place.

Wadi Mujib Gorge

This is one of the most exciting adventures in Jordan – a hike through the Wadi Mujib sandstone gorge, Jordan’s most famous river canyon. A visit here combines stunning scenery, exercise and rushing river water. The highlight of the trip is seeing the 20m (65.6 ft) high waterfall. It does not require any particular preparation, all you need is a pair of walking shoes and lots of enthusiasm!

The Baptism Site

This is the site where it all began – the site where John baptised Jesus Christ. This site marks the beginning of Jesus’ mission and the beginning of Christianity, thus making it one of the three holiest Christian sites in the world. The Baptism Site is less than half-an-hour away from the hotel. Contact our concierge team to arrange your visit.

Mount Nebo

This is the place where the Prophet Moses was buried and it is the most revered holy site in Jordan. When atop this mountain, one can see, as Prophet Moses did, the vast panorama that encompasses the Jordan River Valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho and Jerusalem, often referred to as the Holy Land. Mount Nebo’s first church was built in the late fourth century to mark the site of Prophet Moses’ death. It remains a place of pilgrimage for Christians.

The Lost City of Petra

Petra, the world wonder and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is considered to be Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. This Rose City was almost completely carved into the mountain by the Nabataeans, an ancient Arab civilisation that settled here more than 2,000 years ago.

Ancient City of Jerash

Once one of the ten great Roman cities, the ancient city of Jerash was restored from beneath the sands and is considered to be one of the best preserved Roman cities in the world.
