Taste

With its whir of spice-filled mar­kets and au­then­tic eater­ies, -or­dan serves up an im­mer­sive culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence. 'elve into lo­cal fla­vors with a chef-led tour of a souk to shop for fresh in­gre­di­ents and then, a cook­ing les­son at Beit Sitti, or “Grandma’s House.´ Com­bine a daytrip to Ajloun Cas­tle with a visit to Beit Khairat Souf, a women-run col­lec­tive that serves home­made lunches and din­ners with freshly baked bread. At Pe­tra Kitchen, learn the se­crets to mak­ing tasty baba ghanoush and hum­mus with a hands-on demo and din­ner, fol­lowed by cock­tails at Cave Bar, lo­cated in a 2,000-year-old Na­bataean rock tomb.

Ex­plore

From im­pres­sive Ro­man ru­ins and Umayyad palaces in Am­man to rose-col­ored an­cient sites in Pe­tra, -or­dan presents a stun­ning mo­saic of his­toric trea­sures and awein­spir­ing desert land­scapes. While in Am­man, visit the ru­ins of the walled Greco-ro­man set­tle­ment of Gerasa in -erash, the “Pom­peii of the Mid­dle East´ and re­turn to the Citadel area for a fab­u­lous mansaf din­ner. -or­dan’s fra­grant na­tional dish is made with lamb cooked in yo­gurt served with rice. Spend a full day—and night—in Pe­tra, a UNESCO World Her­itage Site (spe­cial evening vis­its are avail­able on Mon­days, Wed­nes­day, and Thurs­days).

Stay

For a glit­tery mix of an­cient and ul­tra-mod­ern, set­tle into the Watg-de­signed Fair­mont Am­man. 'ine on tra­di­tional cui­sine at the ho­tel’s Nasim restau­rant or stroll through the Ab­doun neigh­bor­hood nearby. In Pe­tra, take in views of the Great Rift Val­ley at the Möven­pick Re­sort Pe­tra, show­cas­ing Mid­dle East­ern tex­tiles, nat­u­ral stone, and hand­crafted wood ac­cents. Glamp with a Be­douin spin at Sun City Camp; tucked into the red land­scape of the ma­jes­tic Wadi Rum desert—and soak up the splen­dor and min­eral-rich waters of the 'ead Sea at the Kempin­ski Ho­tel Ishtar 'ead Sea.
