Luxury Jordan Holidays

There are many facets of this amazing country and a tailor-made journey can help make the most of the delights and resorts on offer. By helping to tailor a tour of the varied land and landscapes one can be sure that the hotels and experiences along the way will only enhance a journey.

 Featuring magnificent world heritage sites such as Petra, the desert of Wadi Rum and the amazing Roman city of Jerash, a luxury holiday in Jordan has a lot to offer its visitors. Once an important trading centre of the Roman Empire and straddling the ancient Holy Land of the world’s three great monotheistic religions, go almost anywhere in Jordan and you will find every stone bares a tale and those of Madaba’s legendary mosaics tell more tales than most. Stand on Mount Nebo, consecrated by Pope John II and survey the land promised to Moses; unwrap a scarf or two at Mukawir, where Salome cast a spell over men in perpetuity; or float in the Dead Sea, beside a pillar of salt, reputed to be Lot’s disobedient wife.

Built on a series of hills, Amman affords its visitors spectacular vistas at every turn. In the heart of the city, ultra-modern buildings, hotels, smart restaurants, art galleries and boutiques rub shoulders comfortably with traditional coffee shops and tiny artisans’ workshops showing evidence of th.....

Luxury Jordan Holidays

There are many facets of this amazing country and a tailor-made journey can help make the most of the delights and resorts on offer. By helping to tailor a tour of the varied land and landscapes one can be sure that the hotels and experiences along the way will only enhance a journey.

 Featuring magnificent world heritage sites such as Petra, the desert of Wadi Rum and the amazing Roman city of Jerash, a luxury holiday in Jordan has a lot to offer its visitors. Once an important trading centre of the Roman Empire and straddling the ancient Holy Land of the world’s three great monotheistic religions, go almost anywhere in Jordan and you will find every stone bares a tale and those of Madaba’s legendary mosaics tell more tales than most.

Built on a series of hills, Amman affords its visitors spectacular vistas at every turn. In the heart of the city, ultra-modern buildings, hotels, smart restaurants, art galleries and boutiques rub shoulders comfortably with traditional coffee shops and tiny artisans’ workshops showing evidence of the city’s much older past all around. The aquatic playground of Aqaba at the Red Sea, fringed with palm trees, offers a vast array of leisure, sporting and entertainment facilities and extremely welcoming, friendly people. Without a doubt Jordan’s Rift Valley is a dramatic, beautiful landscape which, at the Dead Sea is over 400 metres below sea level. This is Jordan’s leading attraction, some ten times saltier than the ocean and with unusually warm, incredibly buoyant and mineral-rich waters. Visitors to the Dead Sea should also take advantage of another nearby wonder, Ma’in Hot Springs. Popular with both locals and tourists the springs are located 264 metres below sea level in one of the most breathtaking desert oases in the world.

Forty eight kilometres north of Amman, Jerash is known for the ruins of the Greco-Roman city of Gerasa, one of the best preserved Roman provincial towns in the world. Hidden for centuries in sand before being excavated and restored over the past 70 years, Jerash reveals paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, baths, fountains and city walls.

No visit to Jordan is complete without a trip to Petra, the jewel in the crown of Jordan’s antiquities declared by popular ballot one of the ‘new’ Seven Wonders of the World. This magnificent rock-hewn city of the Nabateans has been a favourite destination for Europeans since the 19th century and at sunset on a winter’s day, when the rose-pink city is swathed in glorious evening light, it is easy to see why. Not to be outdone by Petra’s success, Wadi Rum, that epic landscape of Lawrence and Lean, with extraordinary desert scenery and dramatic colours dictated by the changing angle of the sun, is a great place to overnight in a private luxury camp deep inside the desert.
