Romance and honeymooners
Beautiful beaches, unique hotels, and a stunningly diverse landscape: Jordan has all the elements of a perfect honeymoon locale. After reading our take on all that Jordan has to offer for newlyweds, you’ll be ready to start planning your honeymoon in this surprisingly romantic Middle Eastern destination.
History buffs and hiking enthusiasts already know that Jordan is a bucket-list destination, but it hasn’t traditionally been on the radar of travelers seeking newly-wedded romance. We say: why not? Jordan has a perfect balance of opportunities for relaxation and adventure, along with unique dining and lodging options for every budget and preference. The country is small, with excellent tourism infrastructure and hospitable culture, making it super manageable for a short and sweet getaway. Ditch the tropical island you were considering for your post-nuptials trip and spend your honeymoon in Jordan after reading our expert advice.
Sunrise Over the Desert in Wadi Rum
Wadi Rum is a vast and otherworldly expanse of protected desert wilderness near Jordan’s southern border. Any couple would love touring the area by Jeep, taking a camel ride, or having a spontaneous just-married photo shoot among the rock formations. However, the most romantic activity in Wadi Rum is a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the desert, offering sweeping views of the valley below. The night before your sky-high excursion, spend the night glamping at Wadi Rum Night Camp, where you’ll want to book one of the fabulous domed stargazing tents.
Vibrant Food Scene in Amman
Amman has its fair share of ancient ruins and interesting museums, but newly married couples will want to focus on the city’s culinary delights. Hashem’s famous falafel is great for lunch, authentic, and wallet-friendly. For dinner, treat yourself in a beautiful setting at Sufra – make sure to ask for a table on the garden patio of this Rainbow Street restaurant.
Afterward, savor dessert downtown at Habibah Sweets, where you’ll find some of the best knafeh in the city. Near Abdoun Circle, you’ll find the Blue Fig Café, an eclectic eatery that often hosts art shows and live music. Then, learn how to recreate your favorite dishes together at home with a class at Beit Sitti, where you’ll master traditional Jordanian dishes and feast on the meal you prepared with the help of a local chef.
Candlelit Evening in Petra
Petra tops the list of attractions in Jordan, and wandering the beautifully preserved, ancient city by day is amazing on its own. But for a truly awe-inspiring experience, couples will want to take part in Petra By Night. You’ll have the enchanting opportunity to see the dramatic walls of the Siq lit by candlelight before finding a seat in front of the majestic Treasury for tea and Bedouin music under the starry sky. Then, head back to your room at the Fig Tree B&B, known for its hospitality, great food, and proximity to Petra’s entrance. You can even book a chair massage in the property’s beautiful garden.
Luxurious Dead Sea Resorts
Don’t worry about missing out on the traditional resort vibe in Jordan – the Dead Sea has all the lovely beaches, swimming pools, and indulgent spa services you’ve been envisioning for your honeymoon. Spend your days getting mud wraps, facials, or a couples massage with your new spouse, regional spa specialties known for their healing properties.
There are plenty of luxury accommodations to choose from, including the Kempinski and Movenpick resorts, both of which have private beaches along with multiple pools and a selection of fine dining establishments.
