Description

Part of a new development on the southern shore of the Red Sea, the Movenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay is both modern and comfortable and provides a good option for those who prefer to stay outside the bustle of cities whilst still having access to all the amenities.

The Red Sea is known for its fantastic diving and snorkeling, with a vast range of stunning coral and marine life. The hotel makes the most of this with its own diving center and jetties. All ages and experience levels are catered for, with daily snorkeling and diving excursions along the coast and on the house reef. For those who don't fancy flippers but still want to see the extraordinary aquatic scenery, there is an underwater observatory.

Other water-based activities include jet skiing, water skiing, banana boat and tube rides, speed boat trips and sunset cruises. There are three large swimming pools, three Jacuzzis, a lazy river, a kids' pool and kids' club as well as a 150-meter private beach, meaning there is plenty to keep the whole family busy whilst also providing a lovely place to relax.

The rooms are simple and pleasant, with private balconies and either double or twins beds. There are family rooms available which offer a main bedroom with a double bed and then a second smaller room with twin beds.

There are eight restaurants and bars in the resort, including Najel, which serves buffet breakfast and dinner and a la carte throughout the day, and Casalingo, which offers tempting Italian dishes.

There is a small daily charge for the Kids' Club, including an extra supplement for lunch, but access to the children's pool is complimentary.

Additional Notes

Check-in

Please note that check-in is at 4pm (1600 hours) for all Movenpick properties in Jordan.

Location & Directions

Aqaba, Jordan

The resort is located on the south shore of the Red Sea and is approximately a 15-minute drive from the center of Aqaba and 25-minutes from King Hussein International Airport.

When to go

For a small country, Jordan has an extraordinary range of climates. The best time to visit climate-wise is in spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when the daytime temperatures aren't too extreme. April is probably the best month, when temperatures are warm and wildflowers are in bloom. March can be cold and rainy in the north but is balmy by the Gulf of Aqaba and the Dead Sea.
