Kerten Hospitality recently inked a management agreement with Ayla Oasis Development Company in Jordan to open the Cloud7 Residence Ayla Oasis Aqaba at Ayla Oasis Aqaba – a waterfront mixed-use development.
Scheduled to inaugurate in June of this year, Kerten’s Cloud7 Residence will be a modern mid-market aparthotel concept designed for the next generation traveller, with boutique surroundings, social spaces and state-of-the-art technology. The project will offer a modern, efficient and well-designed environment for guests, with unique programmes to encourage guests to venture off the beaten track to discover hidden attractions and experiences within the local neighbourhood – part of the brand’s ethos.
Home to 75 keys, Cloud7 Residence Ayla Aqaba is situated in Ayla’s trend-setting Marina Village, the creative hub of the Aqaba community. The Marina Village boasts a variety of dining and shopping experiences, and grants access to a world-class golf course and a beach club.
One-, two-, three- and four-bedroom serviced apartments, designed by Al Najwa (an innovative boutique design studio based in Jordan) are ideal for short-, mid- and long-term stays in Aqaba.
CEO, Kerten Hospitality, Marloes Knippenberg enthused on the project: “We’re very excited to sign our first project in Jordan, and what we expect to be the first of many. As a destination, Ayla Oasis in Aqaba has a lot to offer the growing number of people who prefer to rent or own a holiday home in a ‘bleisure’ destination – where business and leisure meet.
“Ayla Oasis Development Company’s approach to creating an environment where people can live, work and play in one interconnected space is perfectly aligned with our approach, making it the ideal opportunity to introduce Cloud7 serviced residences, which provide long and short-term rentals, as well as the opportunity to own a ‘home away from home’ in a fully-serviced destination,” she concluded.
Also commenting was managing director, Ayla Oasis Development Company, Eng. Sahl Dudin declared: “Since the beginning, Ayla took the lead in promoting and diversifying the tourism sector in Aqaba. After successfully handing over 152 contemporary Island Apartments and 179 exclusive Golf apartments to their owners, Ayla is now preparing to introduce an exciting new range of mid-market residences that cater to tourists who look for originality and individuality.”
