AMMAN GETS RITZ-Y
The Jordanian capital of Amman will be home to a new Ritz-Carlton hotel in 2020. This will be the brand’s 20th property in the Middle East and Africa region. The Ritz-Carlton, Amman will be located in the Fifth Circle – the heart of the city – and have 233 guest rooms and suites, two food and beverage outlets, including a rooftop restaurant, a fitness centre, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spa and meeting facilities including a 1,000m2 ballroom. The hotel will be adjacent to a residential tower of 90 Ritz-Carlton apartments. Amman isn’t the only Middle Eastern city to get new Ritz-Carlton hotels – the brand is due to open properties in Ras Al Khaimah, Tunisia, Sharm Al Shaikh in Egypt and three properties across Morocco in Tamuda Bay, Marrakech and Rabat.
