The luxury residences development in Jordan’s capital, which will soon be followed by a 192-key hotel, has been officially unveiled at a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences, Amman is bringing Marriott International’s prestigious brand to the country for the very first time.

Elevating Amman’s hospitality scene

The official opening of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Amman provides a major boost for both the wider Ritz-Carlton-branded hotel-and-residences project and the city generally. The completed scheme will provide visitors to Jordan’s capital with a new standard of luxury hospitality, adding to the tourism and investment appeal of this increasingly popular country.

The residences’ opening ceremony was presided over by Samer Fakhouri, chairman of Al Eqbal Real Estate Development; John Hearns, senior vice president of global residential operations at Marriott International; Behiye Salk, director of residences at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Amman; and Tareq Derbas, general manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Amman.

Fakhouri said: “The unveiling of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Amman marks an exceptional milestone, not only for us and for The Ritz-Carlton brand, but for all of Jordan.

“This occasion also represents a beautiful fulfillment of the vision of my late father, Tawfiq Fakhouri. His passion for this project is something we as the Fakhouri family aim to embody wholeheartedly, and I am honoured to be here today, in continuation of his enduring legacy.”

A refined luxury experience in Amman

The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Amman houses 90 branded residences set apart by their elevated style and attention to detail.

These residences are the first component to reach completion in a project that also encompasses a luxury hotel, which is expected to open in the spring of this year. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Amman will comprise 192 keys, including 34 suites, along with several dining and drinking concepts.

Salk said: “I am delighted to be here today to usher in the official opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Residences. Our staff members are eager to begin dutifully serving the esteemed ladies and gentlemen who will soon take up residence here, and we are especially proud to introduce the Kingdom to the remarkable quality and service that have earned The Ritz-Carlton such a sterling legacy the world over.”
