Fairmont Hotels & Resorts will welcome a new hotel to its growing portfolio in the Middle East – the Fairmont Amman, expected to open in 2014.

The Fairmont Amman will feature 290 luxurious guestrooms and suites including Fairmont Gold, the brand’s hotel within a hotel featuring amenities such as private reception and guest lounge. The hotel’s food and beverage offerings will provide unique concepts designed to add flair and sophistication to an already exciting city. There will be a number of specialty restaurants and bars taking full advantage of the views and outdoor venues. Guests can relax and rejuvenate in Willow Stream, Fairmont’s signature Spa brand, as well as enjoy panoramic city views from the pool deck. For corporate events, weddings and local galas, over 2,000 square meters of function space, including an 800 square meter ballroom, will allow Fairmont to customize all aspects of meetings and events for meeting planners.
A contemporary design in harmony with the Jordanian landscape is under the aegis of award-winning WATG, the world’s leading design consultant for the hospitality, leisure and entertainment industries. Interior Design will be led by London-based GA Design International, with over twenty years of experience and with offices located in London, Budapest and Kuala Lumpur.
