Petra has not only been categorised as an UNSECO World Heritage Site but it is also one of the Seven Wonders of the World, marking its esteem as a key site of archaeological significance in the Middle East and across the world. Dating back to approximately 300 BC, it is an ode to the ornate style of architecture that still symbolises Jordan’s heritage today.Petra is best experienced alongside a seasoned guide who can take you to the best vantage points, away from the crowds, for views of the towering cliff face carvings and bustling atmosphere below. At night, experience Petra beneath the stars and follow a candle-lit path into the centre of the tombs and temples for an exclusive view of Petra after dark.During your stay, we suggest staying at the Movenpick Petra largely due to its unbeatable location. Situated opposite the gates to the Rose City you cannot get closer to the world-renowned UNESCO Heritage Site than this hotel.
