The Ritz-Carlton, Amman

Amman’s sophisticated high-rise retreat

Amman’s Fifth Circle is home to a host of luxury hotels, but with its towering sandstone-colored facade and art deco-inspired architecture, The Ritz-Carlton, Amman stands apart from the hospitality crowd. A beautiful blend of the brand’s classic European elegance and Jordan’s rich history, the recently opened retreat fuses the best of both worlds into one unforgettable city center oasis.

A collection of 228 accommodations draws inspiration from the country’s unique topography, with carpets designed to resemble shifting sands and hues of blue that recall the Dead Sea bringing a touch of color to elegantly neutral-toned spaces. Sophisticated accents such as marble bathrooms add Ritz-Carlton flair to the brand’s Amman outpost. A wide array of eateries (including a second location of Dubai hot spot Roberto’s), a sumptuous spa and a shimmering outdoor pool complete the scene, cementing this hotel’s standing as a complete retreat from the capital’s bustle.
