The Ritz-Carlton Hotels and Resorts debuts in Jordan with a hotel in Amman

Marriott has announced the opening of The Ritz-Carlton Amman, marking the debut of The Ritz-Carlton brand in the country.


Led by Wimberly Interiors London, the hotel’s design is inspired by the culture and history of Jordan, which is reflected in the hotel’s bold interior architecture, tailored lighting, Art Deco touches and contemporary artistry. Artistic elements within the hotel draw inspiration from the landscape of the Kingdom, from natural rifts of the sea and saturated colors of the earth to the deep crevices of caves and mountains.


The breathtaking structures of Petra are reflected in a series of vignettes, while Roman and Nabatean architectural features are given modern reinterpretations throughout the hotel. The floor finishes in the guest corridors pay homage to Jordan’s desert landscape, and the guestrooms take inspiration from the destination’s natural elements, sand and sea.


Location and Accommodations

Rising elegantly above the West Amman skyline, The Ritz-Carlton, Amman is centrally situated on the prestigious Fifth Circle. Soaring 20-stories high, The Ritz-Carlton, Amman features 228 guest rooms, including 34 opulent suites, spread across seven different categories. All guestrooms and suites have been intricately designed and elegantly furnished, with a sophisticated ambiance felt throughout the property. Marriott says that the rooms and suites are the most spacious of any hotel accommodations in Jordan.
