Swiss-Belhotel expands in Jordan

Announces opening of its first five-star hotel - Grand Swiss-Belresort Tala Bay Aqaba


Swiss-Belhotel International announced opening of the Grand Swiss-Belresort Tala Bay Aqaba. This is the Group’s first five-star in Jordan following completion of the hotel’s rebranding.

Part of the massive Tala Bay development, the 336-room beachfront property is located on the Red Sea with 80% of the rooms facing the marina.

Laurent A Voivenel, senior vice president, operations and development for the Middle East, Africa and India, Swiss-Belhotel International, said: “The hotel is now fully integrated into our global system following the brand conversion. The property also offers dining and leisure facilities including three specialty restaurants and a beach bar, five swimming pools, kids club, and water sports and recreation activities.”

Voivenel stressed, “This project was signed a few months ago as part of an exclusive agreement between Swiss-Belhotel International and Jordan Projects for Tourism Development (JPTD), whereby Swiss-Belhotel International will co-manage JPTD’s existing three hotels in Aqaba as well as its future portfolio of properties.”

JPTD is a publicly listed company that owns, develops and operates the Red Sea destination of Tala Bay Aqaba. Swiss-Belhotel International currently has more than 3500 rooms under development across the Middle East.
