    Very impressive design and colors, but again a complete focus on 5-star luxury facilities. My favourite place in Aqaba is not on the map which is the Ghandour beach public cafe. It is the most genuine representation of the Aqaba culture. has it been removed for another 5-stars hotel? I am certain this will happen one day.
    Moreover, the Aqaba public and tourists cannot access the beach now unless they pay 90 US $ per night. The only open access is the Aqaba Marine Park in the southern coast.

    The website is neat… but I wonder where are these huge projects taking Aqaba to… in my opinion, with the completion of the projects Aqaba will start to loose what is left of its local culture… Capitalism: who can say no?!
