I've been to numerous hotels in Aqaba, but the Kempinski is my favorite hands down, I feel welcomed and comfortable there, I enjoy the clean white atmosphere, the room decor is very sophisticated, and the greatest thing is that ALL the rooms are sea view, the food is amazing too as well as the service.

This international hotel is very stylish and grand, located directly at the beach in Aqaba, a short walk from many restaurants and from the center with a variety of shops. The pools are beautiful and very generous, the beach is great. We found the service to be very good as well. An early check-in at noon was no problem, neither... More

If you are going to spend several days at the South of Israel or Jordan, strongly recommended to stay here. Some connoisseurs of Kempinski chain can say that Kempinski in Aqaba is not as perfect as other Kempinski. But without doubt it is beautiful place where management listen to customers' feedback and try to improve service at that property. Some... More

Our rest was excellent, at the highest level! Especially it was due to the hotel assistant (“Lady in red”) Svetlana. Any questions, any help - all she solved quickly, professionally and for our convenience. The next time, with friends or colleagues - only Kempinski and only to Svetlana! Many thanks, Michael Reizman

The hotel, although it looks quite bland inside, offers great facilities, a nice pool and spacious rooms, Breakfast is good However, the service is the weak point of this hotel: terribly slow at lunch at the walk restaurant, and there is simply no customer service. Not in line with other Kempinski in other countries. I got the same bad service... More

Tried 5 star hotel as a change. Great location, good selection for breakfast, good beach/swimming pool. Service is efficient but often slow. Needs to add a big pinch of Jordan to it. Quite a sterile environment and overpriced. Note that this hotel has a strict policy against bringing in your own alcohol (clearly identified when booking). As with other major... More

We stayed 4 nights with a baby. We found the hotel extremely baby friendly and staff very helpful. We particularly enjoyed the pool and beach areas (very clean, well served and zen). The hotel rooms are luxurious and comfortable. The only drawback was the limited choice for restaurants inside the hotel bc with a baby we weren't able to go... More
