LUXURY COLLECTION DEBUTS IN JORDAN
Guestroom furniture features local products, themes
The 207-room Al Manara, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Saraya Aqaba is designed by Samuel Creations/MMac Associates to pay homage to Arabian architecture and Middle Eastern tales.
Guestrooms at the hotel, which was developed by Eagle Hills Jordan, showcase floor-to-ceiling windows that frame views of the Red Sea. Furniture features weaving from locals as well as dark wood with mother-of-pearl accents. Additionally, brass-topped coffee tables and other décor are sourced locally.
Taybeh Al Manara serves as the hotel’s main dining outlet, while Kubba Levantin is a casual onsite restaurant. Meanwhile, Amwaj is the property’s waterfront bar and restaurant. Al Manara also has a private beach, boutique pool and spa.
Al Manara is the second collaboration between Eagle Hills Jordan and Marriott Intl. after the debut of the W Amman earlier this year. Two more hotel collaborations will follow with the pending opening of The St. Regis Amman and The Westin Saraya Aqaba in the next few months.
