A Stunning Location

I stayed here for one night this week and was only able to get a room as an ALL Gold Member as it was very busy. The hotel is located around 10 minutes drive from Petra/ Wadi Musa perched on a hillside. The building is beautiful and the views even more so- be sure to watch sunset from the terrace. All the staff- security, reception and the restaurant/bar- were really friendly and outgoing. I was upgraded to a suite on the 6th floor which was massive. The bed was exceptionally comfy and there was loads of storage space. Tea/coffee Inc a nespresso machine and free water were provided along with a welcome platter of fruit. The ensuite was small but had a good shower and the toiletries were lovely local Dead Sea products. Dinner is served as a buffet in the main restaurant and was a decent spread although not the beat quality, especially for the price. Although the dessert selection was amazing! I think you can order a la carte too which I would think is a better option. Breakfast, on the other hand, was really good and is served from 0630 to 1030 which is handy. The terrace bar, whilst pricey, is a really nice place to have a drink or two in the evening. There is a small indoor pool and gym which were OK The gift shop in the lobby has a few interesting things, but the staff are quite pushy- the man who sells sand bottles next to reception was extremely persistent too, but the sand bottles looked amazing so I bought a couple! I got the impression that the hotel caters mainly for group tours and I think the other Movenpick in Petra offers a more typical luxury experience, but that said I enjoyed my stay at Nabatean Castle and was especially impressed by the staff.

The hotel is situated high above the surrounding area, and offers an incredible view from all rooms. The sunset was very nice over the mountains. Exclusive interior and very nice rooms, excellent beds. The desk manager was very helpful, and recommended that we left early to visit Petra. Very wise! Sometimes the service took some time and the indoor dining area was not very romantic. But all in all a great hotel.

A unique sunset view !

The Mövenpick Nabatean Castle offers an ideal location: on the heights of the city, far from the tourist hustle and bustle, yet just a 15-minute drive from Petra! The view is just amazing - a panoramic view of the entire Petra valley, right in front of the sunset - a unique sight! The rooms are spacious and beautiful! The best is to choose one facing the valley to have the magnificent colors of the sunset directly from your room!

Wonderful place and service.

I've been 2 nights and I just can say that we had a wonderful time there. The room, the service and the location after a full day in Petra is fantastic. Special thanks to Mr. Ibrahim H, who was all time taking care of my group at the restaurant. Always very helpful and thanks to him we could enjoy a wonderful sunset and a relaxed time at the swimming pool. I definitely will come back with more groups. As a tour leader is a pleasure be in hotels with that level of service. Thanks so much. Begoña Fernández
