Movenpick Petra

What it is

A 183-room gem overlooking the entrance to the 5th century citadel, with an outdoor pool, 7 restaurants, and a hammam-stocked spa with treatments from the Dead Sea.

What it isn't

Historic. But after hours wandering ancient sites, sometimes zippy WiFi, AC and satellite TV are just what the doctor ordered.

What we think

When you’ve traversed the world to arrive at such a storied sight, why book a hotel that’s a schlep away from the action? Not only is it as close as one can get, but the property is chockablock with pampering amenities that are sorely needed after a day's sightseeing, including a spa with a Dead Sea floatation pool, tropically scented showers and a hydrojet whirlpool. Guest rooms are elegantly appointed with everything a high-power CEO type could ask for, including a mini bar and coffee maker so you’re ready to hit the red, sandy ground running. Planning a honeymoon or something equally fabulous? We love the nearly 600 square foot Royal Suite, complete with a kitchenette for a homey vibe and a fully furnished terrace that peeps out on the postcard-ready landscape.

You're here because

The fourth floor roof garden restaurant is worth traveling for alone, thanks to its panorama over the Petra foothills, gurgling fountain, and on-point mezze options (you want the perfectly grilled shrimp).

The Moment

Afternoon tea is all the more sumptuous when you’re perched in an ornately inlaid wood chair by the flickering fireplace in Al Baraka Tea Room. Don’t miss the creme brulee with dried apples and walnuts—it’s anything but standard issue.
