Petra’s popular Mövenpick Nabatean Castle Hotel has officially reopened following the completion of an extensive renovation and enhancement project.
Mövenpick Nabatean Castle Hotel is located 10 minutes from the entrance to Petra — a 2,000-year-old UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of the World’. The hotel, which is an attraction by itself, is perched at an elevation of 1,400 metres and offers views of the valley, making it an ideal and inspirational base for discovering the ancient archaeological landscapes nearby.
The hotel features an indoor lap pool adorned with Romanesque pillars, while a function room with an adjoining outdoor terrace caters to bespoke meetings, weddings and incentives. Guests can also dine at Al Madafa, an atmospheric restaurant serving Jordanian specialities and international dishes, with ingredients and organic products sourced from local suppliers.
Highlights of the renovation include 90 contemporary rooms decorated in natural tones, featuring showers and tile flooring that create a fortress-style hotel, which is located in the rolling hills of the Rift Valley, close to Jordan’s most visited attraction – the ancient city of Petra, also known as the ‘Red Rose City’.
Also part of the renovation, a new Bedouin tent has been built where traditional Jordanian cuisine and Arabic coffee are served while the revised layout at the Nadeem Bar & Terrace promises impressive views of Mount Aroun, the area’s highest peak. In addition, the venue’s décor has been enriched with heritage-inspired art, enhancing its appeal as the best destination to visit when in Petra.
Finally, the property has also introduced new tailor-made experiences such as mountain-view bonfires, designed for special occasions or small family gatherings.
