The Ritz-Carlton, one of Marriott Collection’s ultra-luxury brands, is ushering in a new standard of refined hospitality in the heart of Jordan’s vibrant capital with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Amman.
The 20-storey hotel features 228 rooms – including 34 opulent suites – and rises elegantly above the West Amman skyline, centrally situated on the prestigious Fifth Circle.
All guestrooms and suites have been intricately designed and elegantly furnished, with a sophisticated ambiance felt throughout the property.
Led by Wimberly Interiors London, the hotel’s design is inspired by the culture and history of Jordan, which is reflected in the hotel’s bold interior architecture, tailored lighting, Art Deco touches and contemporary artistry.
Artistic elements within the hotel draw inspiration from the landscape of the Kingdom, from natural rifts of the sea and saturated colours of the earth to the deep crevices of caves and mountains. The breathtaking structures of Petra are reflected in a series of vignettes, while Roman and Nabatean architectural features are given modern reinterpretations throughout the hotel. The floor finishes in the guest corridors pay homage to Jordan’s desert landscape, and the guestrooms take inspiration from the destination’s natural elements, sand and sea.
The property features a rooftop signature Italian restaurant – Roberto’s – a popular fixture on Dubai’s culinary scene, and a relaxed dining option in the hotel’s lobby, Ambros, which serves unique seasonal produce and reimagined classics. Also located in the hotel lobby, Iris is a stylish tea lounge and pâtisserie featuring a selection of signature eclairs, and high tea experiences. At Sarab Garden, visitors can enjoy a sophisticated shisha lounge featuring upscale regional cuisine. Opening later this year, Soleil will appeal to guests looking for healthy dining with its focus on vegetarian dishes and a distinctive coffee roastery.
The Ritz-Carlton Spa is a full-service spa and wellness centre offering ESPA products, indoor and outdoor temperature-controlled pools, six treatment rooms, a relaxation lounge and the largest jacuzzi in Amman.
