At the heart of this purpose-built resort, about 15 minutes south of Aqaba, is a large pool, crossed by bridges and with islands containing Jacuzzis dotted around it, all of which leads down to the beach and Red Sea. The 306 rooms are brightly decorated with modern furniture and comfortable beds. The architecture blends modern materials and lighting with motifs from traditional Arabian design. Guests are spoilt for choice when wining and dining. Many of the restaurants and bars make use of the year-round sunshine and have terraces from which to enjoy sunsets and the ocean views over dinner or lunch.
