The Ritz-Carlton, Amman opens its doors

Dubai-founded Italian fine-dining concept Roberto’s is the hotel’s signature restaurant

The Ritz-Carlton, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 hotel brands, has announced the opening of its Amman property.

Situated in the city’s Fifth Circle, rising 20 storeys above the west Amman skyline, The Ritz-Carlton, Amman features 228 guest rooms, including 34 suites.

Led by Wimberly Interiors London, the hotel’s design is inspired by the culture and history of Jordan. Artistic elements within the hotel draw inspiration from the landscape, from natural rifts of the sea and saturated colours of the earth to the deep crevices of caves and mountains.

The property’s signature restaurant Roberto’s, already a fixture on Dubai’s culinary scene, aims to redefine the concept of authentic Italian fine dining in Jordan, with the venue set to become one of the capital’s most exciting new lifestyle hotspots.

Guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Amman can also opt to dine at Ambros, located in the property’s lobby, serving seasonal produce and reimagined classics.

Other onsite concepts include tea lounge Iris, a shisha lounge featuring upscale regional cuisine called Sarab Garden, and The Founders Room cigar and whiskey lounge

Opening this summer, Soleil will appeal to guests looking for healthy cuisine with its focus on vegetarian dishes and speciality coffee. Legends, a distinctive sports lounge with American-style culinary fare, is set to open later in the year.
