Movenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba


The striking contemporary vibe of the Movenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba provides a fascinating contrast to the classic beauty of the hotel’s desert location. Situated on the sapphire shores of the Red Sea and set against the dramatic backdrop of Jordan’s arid mountains, this family-oriented resort offers an oasis of calm just outside the thriving metropolis of Aqaba city centre. Rich in culture and famous for the teeming marine life of the Aqaba Gulf, this is a city whose history goes back more than six thousand years- and yet today, it is a shining example of Jordanian development and infrastructure. The Movenpick Resort & Spa exudes a unique style that reflects the progressive nature of modern day Aqaba, whilst simultaneously permitting its guests an authentic taste of Jordanian culture.

  • Top up your tan on the golden stretches of the hotel’s 150-metre private beach
  • Make the most of Aqaba’s desert setting with a 4x4 safari into the surrounding mountains
