Petra (Jordan) 13 October 2014. Mövenpick Resort Petra has landed an acclaimed spot on the prestigious luxury travel.
The resort, uniquely located at the entrance of the historic rose-red city of Petra, was ranked among the top 20 lodges and resorts in Africa and Middle East, according to the luxury travel magazine’s 19th annual World’s Best Awards’ survey. Of the 20 lodges and resorts, it is the only resort in Jordan and one of only two Middle Eastern resorts to clinch an inclusion.
Travel + Leisure’s annual reader survey rates destinations including hotels, spas, cities and islands as well as travel providers based on visitors’ experiences. Readers of Travel + Leisure were invited to vote for their favourites, both online and offline, over a period of four months. Hotels were assessed on their rooms and facilities, location, service, restaurants and food, as well as value.
“Being on the doorstep of this magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Site means we’re fortunate to welcome guests to a spectacular location,” said Abedrabo Twaissi, General Manager of Mövenpick Resort Petra. “That said, this celebrated recognition would not have been possible without the dedication, loyalty and exceptional service of our team.”
Mövenpick Resort Petra, the only resort located within walking distance of the historic stone-carved city, is a favourite for travellers, celebrities and leaders from around the world. The authentic interiors of the 183-room resort, featuring Jordanian stone, woodcarvings and Middle Eastern fabrics, give the resort a unique oriental flair. Seven restaurants and lounges serve excellent cuisine which can be savoured while overlooking spectacular views.
