The 2014 World Travel Awards regional ceremonies are underway and the Movenpick Resort and Spa Tala Bay Aqaba is the latest to receive a prestigious accolade.

The five-star hotel is situated on the sandy shores of the Red Sea in Aqaba, Jordan and it was recognised as "Jordan's Leading Resort" in a ceremony last week, during which Gerard Hotelier, the Vice President Operations at Movenpick Hotels and Resorts Middle East and India, received the award.

Beat Peter, the General Manager of Movenpick Resort and Spa Tala Bay Aqaba, commented:

"It is one of the most important awards that the resort has ever won so naturally we are thrilled. This has been a phenomenal year for us in terms of international acclaim, a testament to the exceptional service and travel experiences that we offer to our guests."

Located just 15 minutes from the city centre of Aqaba and 25 minutes from the King Hussein International Airport (AQJ), the luxury all inclusive resort boasts an array of upscale facilities including, 3,000-square-metres of swimming pool space, the tranquil award-winning Zara Spa Tala Bay, a selection of indoor and outdoor gourmet restaurants serving a variety of international culinary delights, a scuba diving centre, a 234-square-metre ballroom, and a private 150-metre-long sandy beach.

The hotel has 306 guest rooms and suites, including two Grand Suites, which feature chic decor and furnishings, spacious balconies, and modern amenities including free mini-bars, wireless Internet, LCD TVs, air-conditioning, 24-hour room service and in-room safes.

The resort was also recently awarded the title of "Best Luxury Resort Spa in Jordan" at the 2014 World Luxury Hotel Awards.

Jordan is rich in history, natural beauty, and ancient sites such as the historic city of Petra and the Roman ruins of the Temple of Herakles.
