Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has expanded its portfolio
in Jordan with the signing of a management agreement for a new holiday
resort with 456 rooms and suites at Tala Bay in Aqaba. The international
hotel group has had four hotels in the kingdom for many years.
Construction work on Mövenpick Resort Tala Bay
is completed which means the resort will open in summer this year.
Tala Bay is a new and exclusive residential
community on the southern shores of the Red Sea destination Aqaba
where various hotels and apartments, a marina, restaurants, shops,
and boutiques are being built. The area is situated 10 minutes
from the city centre of Aqaba, while King Hussein International
Airport is only 20 minutes away.
The owner of the hotel is the Zara South Coast
Development Company with whom Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has
collaborated successfully for the past decade. “We are very
pleased that we have the opportunity to open another hotel, the
fifth in Jordan and the second in Aqaba, together with the Swiss
company,” said Yassin K. Talhouni, Chairman of Zara South Coast
Development Company. “Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts enjoys an
excellent reputation in the region in general and in Jordan in
particular. Guests will certainly be enthusiastic about the high
standards and quality that the addition of Mövenpick Resort Tala
Bay will bring to this prestigious new community.”
The 456 rooms, including 145 family rooms, nine
Junior Suites and two Executive Suites, all share a generous and
modern design and light-coloured furnishings. The guests’ culinary
needs are taken care of by a main restaurant, an Italian
speciality restaurant, a seafood outlet, as well as various bars.
The wide range of leisure amenities includes the
hotel’s own diving centre as well as a 1500 sqm spa and wellness
area. With their generous public areas such as an amphitheatre and
state-of-the-art meeting facilities, the hotel is also suitable for all
sorts of events. The unique pool and water features
perfectly round off the image of a modern holiday resort.
