Great rooms located on the beach. The evening entertainment was excellent while having drinks on the terrace. The sea in front of the hotel is very busy with boats going back and forth. It is entertaining to watch. The designs of the various pools were aesthetically pleasing and most of the people were in the Jacuzzi pool while we were... More

While there frankly isn't all that much to do in Aqaba, the Kempinski is a wonderful resort if you just want to relax on the beach and swim in the Red Sea. Like all Kempinskis in my experience, this one is a world-apart, a private universe with all the luxury appointments and impeccable service. We highly recommend it.

Sleek modern hotel with its own private beach. Every time my wife and I visit Aqaba, this is the place for us. It's a little more geared for adults than say the Inter-Con next door, but that doesn't mean it's not kid friendly. The design, décor and rooms are all very well laid out and lean towards modern minimization, but... More

Fabulous hotel!!! Every room has a panoramic sea view. And the rooms are locked, clean lines, white, and modern. The pool area is fantastic, with various areas to swim, lounge, or swim up to the bar. I loved the area with lounge chairs in a couple inches of water. Great for relaxing. Breakfast buffet was delicious, though the aggressive birds... More
