A bold, modern hotel on the Aqaba beachfront, the Intercontinental is the best hotel in the city. On the beachside of the hotel, a huge pool and lazy river dominate and provide a great place to relax and unwind. In the lobby, glass runs from floor to ceiling to the full height of the lobby, affording amazing views over the beach and ocean. The 255 rooms are modern and luxurious, with understated, soft tones complemented by dashes of bold colour. There are a variety of restaurants and bars to choose from, including a mixed grill restaurant offering some local colour and flavours; there is also an excellent spa.
