Four Seasons Amman

28 March 2017

Words: Nyree McFarlane / Images: Four Seasons

The Four Seasons in Jordan is seen as the grand dame of Amman’s prestigious Fifth Circle neighbourhood. Just a brief wander around its corridors could see you brush shoulders with anyone from a suited and booted politician to perfectly coiffed celebrities.

While you’ll most likely spend much of your time in the kingdom exploring its historical sites – many of which are just a short drive from Amman – a leisurely stay at the hotel itself is something we strongly reccomend you consider.

Swim a few laps in the stunning indoor pool, which remains dappled with sunlight throughout the winter, then book a table at the new French bistro La Capitale. You’ll struggle to find a better restaurant anywhere in the neighbourhood. A final tip: be sure to book an airport transfer with the hotel. The Four Seasons has its own lounge in the arrivals terminal, and the driver will meet you at passport control to whizz you through the process in double-quick time, leaving you with more time to enjoy your visit.
