Stylishly set on the cerulean waters of the Red Sea, it’s a good thing the Hotel Aqaba is designed in an ultra-minimalistic aesthetic. After all, when the natural landscape is this phenomenal, anything else would be overwhelming. Arrange a day trip to the otherworldly archaeological site of Petra, or emulate Lawrence of Arabia with a camel ride through Wadi Rum. However, with the hotel’s opulent multilayered swimming pool and lavish spa, you may never want to leave.
