Petra Movenpick Resort

Petra, Jordan

The best thing about the Petra Movenpick Resort is its prime location: just steps from the entrance to one of the most magical sites in the world. This is greatly appreciated after a long day of exploring on foot—and it’s also nice to be able to get there first thing in the morning before most other groups arrive! The hotel features a pleasant rooftop restaurant/bar and an outdoor pool, and offers magnificent views across the desert. Be sure to sample the hotel’s selection of ice creams (the mango is especially good!).
