Welcome to Petra
Take a journey to one of the world’s most treasured archaeological gems, located in Jordan’s southwestern desert. Once the Nabatean Kingdom’s capital, Petra is now a cherished cove of ornate temples and tombs, heralding its rich and intoxicating history.
The ancient city, accessed via a narrow canyon, transports you to a bygone era. Soaring pink cliffs eclipse the city, known as the ‘Rose City’, which houses a myriad of natural beauty and cultural gems. Roman theatres and colonnaded streets give you a living Petra experience while the two museums – the Petra Archaeological Museum and the Petra Nabataean Museum give you a further glimpse into this enchanting city’s past.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ two Petra locations include the Mövenpick Resort Petra which sits directly at the entrance of the city and the Mövenpick Nabatean Castle Hotel which lies 10 minutes by car from Petra’s historic site.
