The Ritz-Carlton Debuts in Jordan


The Ritz-Carlton, part of Marriott Bonvoy's portfolio of 30 notable hotel brands, has opened the doors of The Ritz-Carlton, Amman, introducing a new standard of refined hospitality in the heart of Jordan's vibrant capital. Elevated elegantly above the West Amman skyline and centrally located on the prestigious Fifth Circle, The Ritz-Carlton, Amman welcomes guests to create unforgettable memories. 

"We are thrilled to bring The Ritz-Carlton brand to Amman, embodying our commitment to delivering unparalleled experiences and creating meaningful memories in the world's most exciting markets," said Donna McNamara, Vice President and Global Brand Leader for The Ritz-Carlton. "From exquisite culinary craftmanship to treasured family moments, The Ritz-Carlton, Amman will embrace guests with its legendary service and offer a unique lens on this charming capital city."

Rising 20-stories high, The Ritz-Carlton, Amman features 228 spacious guestrooms, including 34 opulent suites across seven categories. All guestrooms and suites have been elaborately designed and elegantly furnished, with a sophisticated ambience felt throughout the property.

Headed by Wimberly Interiors London, the hotel's bold interior architecture, tailored lighting, Art Deco touches, and contemporary artistry draw inspiration from the culture and history of Jordan. Artistic elements pay homage to the landscape of the Kingdom, from natural rifts of the sea and saturated colours of the earth to the deep crevices of caves and mountains. The stunning structures of Petra are echoed in a series of vignettes, while Roman and Nabatean architectural features are given modern reinterpretations throughout the building. The floor finishes in the guest corridors embody Jordan's desert terrain, as the guestrooms take inspiration from the destination's natural elements, sand and sea.

The Ritz-Carlton, Amman features a broad selection of distinctive dining options. Overlooking the Amman skyline on the hotel's 20th floor sits the property's signature restaurant, Roberto's. Already a beloved fixture on Dubai's culinary scene, the arrival of Roberto's will redefine the concept of authentic Italian fine dining in Jordan, with the venue set to become one of the capital's most exciting new lifestyle hotspots for residents and visitors alike.

Along with the lively atmosphere at Roberto's, guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Amman can indulge at Ambros, a relaxed dining option in the lobby serving unique seasonal produce and reimagined classics. Meanwhile, in the hotel lobby, Iris is a stylish tea lounge and pâtisserie showcasing a selection of signature eclairs and high tea experiences. Visitors can also enjoy a sophisticated shisha lounge at Sarab Garden featuring deluxe regional cuisine. For cigar connoisseurs, The Founders Room is a timeless cigar and whiskey lounge offering a highly exclusive atmosphere and an elevated menu of sophisticated bites. Slated to open this summer, Soleil will appeal to guests seeking healthy dining with its focus on vegetarian dishes and a phenomenal coffee roastery. Legends, a sports lounge with American-style culinary fare, is also set to open later this year.

The Ritz-Carlton, Amman is an ideal destination for corporate and leisure guests with its vast array of facilities. This includes a 1,050 square-metre Grand Ballroom, five meeting rooms, one boardroom, and a lavish Club Lounge, all featuring unparalleled service and genuine care. In addition, the Ritz-Carlton Spa is a full-service spa and wellness centre offering ESPA products, indoor and outdoor temperature-controlled pools, six treatment rooms, a relaxation lounge and the largest jacuzzi in Amman.

"The opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Amman marks an incredible milestone for the entire Kingdom," said Tareq Derbas, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Amman. "The property delivers an exceptional standard of luxury and refinement - one that redefines elegance and hospitality in Jordan and the wider region. We are thrilled to unveil this stunning property and look forward to welcoming guests with a level of care and passion that will be sure to delight and exceed expectations."
