Luxury hotel group Four Seasons has unveiled an extensive renovation of its hotel in Amman, Jordan.
The hotel, located in the Abdoun residential district, has been completely redesigned with interiors that “reflect the Jordanian capital’s intersection of Arabic, Islamic and Western cultures”.
The renovation was carried out by Richmond International, the same firm that designed the original interiors for the opening of the property in 2003.
The redesign is visible upon arrival at hotel, which now features a new road which takes guests to a redesigned vestibule area leading to the grand lobby. Inside, the reception features a fusion of modern and traditional elements and the lobby includes floral centrepieces by local florist Alissar.
The Foyer Lounge features colours, textures and materials in earthy tones which draw inspiration from the landscape surrounding the city. These include marquetry panels, stone cladding and timber accents.
Meanwhile, the hotel’s 163 rooms have been modernised to reflect contemporary influences and incorporate advanced in-room technology. Interiors feature clean lines, tailor-made furniture, pale grey and sandy tones with soft green accents, natural light and artwork inspired by the country’s history and local artisanal craftwork.
The 29 suites have a warmer colour scheme of rusty oranges, reds, golds and greens, inspired by the “spirit of the desert”, and feature bespoke furniture.
Carlo Stragiotto, general manager at the hotel, commented:
“Through this renovation, it was our goal to completely revitalise the look of the Hotel, as well as create a more relaxed feel that reflects the aspirations of today’s discerning travellers.
“I would like to thank our business partners in Jordan and internationally for their patience during the period of the renovation. The team in Amman is filled with pride at the completion of the renovation and we look forward to welcoming back all our valued guests.”
Richmond International’s Principal Fiona Thompson added:
“Amman is considered the focal point of most innovative trends and cultural initiatives in the region, where urban European cool mixes with a renewed sense of Arab pride. We wanted to design a concept that blended local traditions with more modern textures creating a sophisticated and glamorous setting. Our aim was to incorporate a mix of old and new, representing the layered history of the city that the property overlooks. An intimate destination oozing personality and Jordanian hospitality that is the place to be seen.’’
The group recently opened a property in New Orleans, located within a modernist compass-shaped tower set on the Mississippi waterfront.
