Fairmont Amman

Before being drawn in by the mystique of Petra and the enchantment of Wadi Rum, take some time in Amman to get your bearings in ancient citadels and spice-laced souks. Tucked between stylish neighbourhoods and the buzz of downtown, Fairmont Amman is elegance personified. 317 rooms and suites open up onto sweeping views of the Ammanian Hills whilst a host of restaurants take your palette on a round-the-world trip and the Willow Stream Spa soothes away any trace of jet lag. Arrive in Jordan and before you go anywhere else, make sure you go here.


Sitting on Amman’s fifth circle, Fairmont Amman lies sandwiched between affluent neighbours and a downtown area full of life. Step out of the polished lobby and find yourself immersed in streets of old world souks where spices, music and chatter surround you and hawkers sell their wares. Just half an hour from the airport, Fairmont Amman makes the perfect start to any Jordan adventure.

Your Room

Crafted on a template of classical luxury, Fairmont Amman manages to be at once flawless and understated. With a touch of contemporary design brought in alongside state of the art technology, you’ll want for nothing in each of the 317 rooms and suites. Plush bedding tops king size beds, Black Tomato favourites, Le Labo, line the bathroom shelves and fireplaces give a gentle warming glow in the suites. If you really want that home from home feeling though, the residences can’t be beaten.

Why we like it

One night at Fairmont Amman is never enough. There’s so much to see in the city, whether that’s a day trip to the ruins of Jerash or the Citadel of Jebel al-Qala’a. More than that though, there’s so much to eat. Deciding on a dinner reservation is no easy task here with Nasim drawing you in with a waft of shisha and the promise of local delicacies, whilst Nur intrigues with its menu of Levant cuisine, Tsuki hits that umami note with hand-rolled sushi and Salt salutes the appetite with juicy steaks. Wherever you choose though, cap it all off with an aperitif in the seductive Caprice and you’re guaranteed a gourmet evening.
