Swiss-Belhotel has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Aqaba, Jordan with the opening of Marina Plaza Hotel by Swiss-Belhotel, its second property in the city.

The hotel is located along the coast of Tala Bay just two minutes walk from the private beach stretching along Aqaba Gulf.

Mr Laurent A.

With the opening of this second property we are excited to expand our footprint here, especially at a time when the area is experiencing continued growth in demand from both regional and international travelers.
