Movenpick Resort Petra 

The gateway to Petra

A relaxing oasis to retreat to after days spent exploring Jordan’s historic Red Rose City.

The natural stone walls of Movenpick Resort Petra stand just 50 metres from the entrance of Ancient City, Petra. It’s an excellent base to see the sights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, where sandstone temples and tombs are carved into cliffsides. Inside the hotel, colourful Middle Eastern designs and textures reflect its culture-rich backdrop. The pace is slow here. Unwind by the pool or with a Mineral-Rich Mud Wrap at Zara Spa, and indulge in the complementary Chocolate Hour each afternoon.

Why we love Movenpick Resort Petra

  • You’re in a prime position for accessing the ancient city – the hotel is opposite the entrance to Petra.

  • Savour the complimentary Chocolate Hour daily in the lobby for the perfect afternoon pick-me-up.

  • The Al Ghadeer Roof Garden is a favourite spot to watch the sunset behind the Petra Hills and then linger for the daily barbeque under the stars.

  • The Middle Eastern décor is exquisitely intricate, featuring rich tapestries, gold and turquoise inlaid walls, marble floors, and hand-carved furniture in different spaces throughout the hotel.
