Jordan’s coveted Four Seasons Hotel Amman has drawn the curtain on its newly refurbished guest rooms and suites, which strongly reflect the local landscape and Jordan’s fusion of Arabic, Islamic and Western cultures through local colours, textures and materials.
General manager, Four Seasons Hotel Amman, Carlo Stragiotto enthused on the news: “We are delighted to unveil our newly designed rooms and suites, each of which has been reimagined with the goal of taking the guest experience to new heights. The results are truly inspiring; local artisans have been engaged to create bespoke design elements that draw heavily from Jordanian history and traditional craftsmanship, capturing the essence of this wonderful destination. We look forward to welcoming both local residents and international visitors to our beautiful Hotel, which offers the perfect retreat for those who wish to explore the many wonders of Jordan.”
The renovation works were taken on by renowned hotel designers Richmond International – the same company that first crafted the interiors for the opening of Four Seasons Hotel Amman in 2003.
Each room and suite has undergone modernisation and brings to guests all the comforts of advanced in-room technology, with large windows offering panoramic views of the city and making way for plenty of natural light.
The rooms now sport soothing pale grey and sandy tones, offset with soft green accents, while the colour scheme of the suites is slightly warmer, with the same neutral sand colour complemented by rusty oranges, reds, golds and greens. All suites feature a selection of tailormade furniture, as well as ready-made pieces, while the guest rooms encompass an entirely bespoke collection of furniture designs.
Associate, Richmond International, Emma Master remarked on the project: “Within the Middle East, Jordan is considered a vibrant destination that presents an intriguing mix of old and new; it was this combination of local heritage and today’s multicultural society that informed our design concept. We employed vibrant colours throughout the interiors to reflect the energy of the city itself, and worked with local artisans for bespoke elements, such as local embroidery.
“The unique interiors are designed to channel a sense of place through the use of local colours, textures and materials with traditional Middle Eastern influences,” Master added.
Guaranteeing visitors a home-away-from-home experience, the new rooms and suites offer a more informal environment as well as adaptable spaces in which to unwind. A great deal of attention has been paid to the artwork featured in the rooms and suites, which draws heavily from local history and artisanal craftwork.
