This hotel is very new and had only been taking guests for 4 months when we arrived in October.
The hotel is elegant, cool, bright and airy. Our room was very bright and although our balcony gave us a close up view of 3 or 4 very large freighters on the Red Sea, waiting to load up with phosphate or potash (two of Jordan's main exports); they actually give an interesting contrast, especially when you remember that they will have arrived there after sailing through the Suez Canal or braving Somali pirates as they sailed north - come on, use your imagination.
We only had one hight here as a post-Petra relaxation, but Aqaba would be a great choice for anyone interested in watersports and the Kempinski does have its own private beach on the Red Sea.
Staff were very good, as was the food.
