5 Romantic Getaways in Jordan

Jordan is a land of contrasts. It is known for everything from it's rugged natural terrain to natural spas at the lowest place on earth and whether you're looking for adventure or a secluded getaway there is nowhere better to experience romance. 

 Here are some staff pics to help you plan your romantic getaway

Brigid (Marketing Assistant): Escape to the Desert

 A stunning desert retreat, Wadi Rum makes for an ideal getaway with the perfect blend of adventure and romance. During the day, take a hot air balloon ride and enjoy sweeping views as you float over the vast red desert. Then at night, experience luxury in a whole new way at one of Wadi Rum's many lavish desert camps. See the stars at their brightest while sitting around a blazing campfire and basking in the silence of the desert with your loved one. And while your at it, enjoy a bottle of fine Jordanian wine on a candle lit table for two with a violinist in the background.

Malia (Director): Feynan Ecolodge

 For anyone looking for a true romantic escape, stay off the grid at the famous Feynan Ecolodge in the middle of the Wadi Araba desert, one of my favorite romantic spots in Jordan. Whether you are taking an early morning hike, sipping on Bedouin tea in a tent listening to stories by indigenous tribes, learning how to bake bread or relaxing in the sun looking out over the stunning mountainous views, makes this place a romantic getaway. However, it is the evenings at Feynan when the whole lodge is lit by candles and starlight and the silence of the desert is so strong that it tugs on your heart strings that the romance of this place truly comes alive. 

Angelica (Mexico Consultant): Wadi Rum

 The romance for me in Jordan, began with the country itself, but most of all, the images of the Bedouins, the camels, the color of the sand, and the beautiful, marvelous sky in Wadi Rum,  with all those very bright  stars shining for everybody, it makes you feel your heart beating with every breath, with every smile not just for romantic purposes, but for the camaraderie we share, and the true friendship we create.    The music, the dances, the candles makes it one of the most amazing and romantic place in the world.

Samer (Partnership Marketing Manager): Sky diving at the lowest point on Earth

 If you and your significant other are seeking an adventure, you will love sky diving over the lowest point on earth. After that momentous adrenaline rush you can relax at one of the natural spas at the Marriott, Movepick, Kempinski resort where you can enjoy a massage and bath salt treatment that will restore and rejuvinate you. Top off your day floating on the water and then enjoying dinner overlooking an incredible sunset over the Dead Sea.

Explore awe inspiring Petra, one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Hike to the monastery and explore the incredible views you'll find at the top. Make a romantic dinner at Petra Kitchen and then return to see Petra by Night where you'll get to experience the romance of seeing Petra lit by hundreds of candle while traditional music is played.
