Accor has officially inaugurated the highly anticipated Mövenpick Hotel Amman, its ninth property in Jordan.
Mövenpick Hotel Amman is the Swiss brand’s first property in the capital and its sixth in Jordan. Its opening follows the group’s takeover and rebrand of an existing 218-room property in the capital, boasting a strategic location in the west part of the city, within close proximity to the central business district, popular shopping malls and major cultural attractions such as the Citadel, Temple of Hercules, Roman Amphitheatre and the Royal Automobile Museum.
“Raising the first Mövenpick flag in Amman marks a milestone for the brand in the country, where its Middle East growth story began and today operates six high-profile properties across Aqaba, Petra and the Dead Sea,” vice president operations – Levant and Pakistan, Accor, Michael Nugent remarked. “The new hotel not only complements these popular resorts, but Accor’s three additional properties in the capital, across the Fairmont, Le Grand – soon to be reflagged to Sofitel, and Ibis brands, provides business and leisure travellers with even more choice of quality accommodation options in the capital, from midscale to luxury.”
Mövenpick Hotel Amman features an extensive range of facilities, including four restaurants, seven meeting rooms and a grand ballroom accommodating up to 1,200 people, as well as an outdoor swimming pool, a gym, a sauna, a steam room and an executive floor and lounge.
A highlight at the hotel is the spectacular top-floor presidential suite with a balcony featuring a Jacuzzi and stunning city skyline views. Later this year, guests staying at the property can also earn benefits as part of Accor’s loyalty programme.
Reinforcing its commitment to the Jordanian market, Movenpick Hotels & Resorts in Jordan underwent major upgrade of the 6,000m2 flagship Zara Spa Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea along with the launch of the new Zara Spa at Mövenpick Resort Petra to follow this summer.
Accor’s three additional properties in its growing Jordan portfolio include Fairmont Amman, which opened in 2017 as the first Fairmont property in the country, Le Grand Amman – another re-branding of a landmark hotel that will soon become Sofitel Amman following comprehensive refurbishment – and Hotel Ibis Amman.
