Aqaba, Jordan – 25 April 2018. Five consecutive wins as ‘Jordan’s Leading Resort’ made this year’s World Travel Awards extra special for Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba. The Red Sea beach resort is famed for its multiple swimming pools and family-friendly activities, as well as the Zara Spa, eight restaurants, a dive centre, event venues and complimentary discovery shuttles.




With several first-class resorts in Jordan located in Dead Sea, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Red Sea, this is no easy feat. Yet, Aqaba’s Mövenpick Tala Bay has once again risen to the occasion with its consistent five-star service and excellent variety of facilities.




All 306 rooms and suites feature balconies or terraces with views of the Red Sea, pools, or Aqaba’s mountains. Among those are dedicated family rooms, which complement a kids’ pool and kids’ club. The 11-room Zara Spa features a sauna, steam room, ice fountain, fragrant experience showers, colour therapy, hairdresser, nail studio and a skylight hydro pool.



“A complete handful of World Travel Awards…of course we’re thrilled,” said Dan Benzaquen, General Manager of Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba. “Even though we are fortunate to regularly win awards, getting five in a row as Jordan’s best resort is really very special. Winning over several years starts as a daily decision to make memories in a beautiful location, and I’m grateful for a tremendous hotel team that steps out every day with the same enthusiasm to deliver on this vision.”




Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba also won ‘Luxury Beachfront Hotel in Jordan’ at the recent Luxury Travel Guide Awards. A variety of themed packages, tailored for families, couples and wellness travellers, can be booked on Movenpick.com website.




The five-resort is situated on a private beach; just 15 minutes away from the Aqaba city centre and also near King Hussein International Airport, which is 20-minute drive away. The resort’s guests are welcome to take advantage of the complimentary shuttle services to Aqaba airport and Aqaba downtown which are on first-come-first-served.




During the end of 2017, a 27% increase of tourists visiting Aqaba was reported, partly due to new charters and direct flights from Scandinavia and other destinations. Direct European flight fares to Aqaba will also be available from October 2018.
