Millis Potter Insight
The Kempinski Aqaba is the best choice should you want a really lovely hotel on the Red Sea. The rooms and facilities are superb. As a result, we generally suggest the Kempinski for our guests when visiting Aqaba. There is a lovely beach, and the seafood is especially delicious.
