Royal Honeymoon in Jordan

The Royal Wedding
followed by a Royal Holiday in Aqaba


Prince William and Kate's honeymoon in Jordan provides great positive publicty for the country that has been badly influenced by the recent negative media coverage of the Middle East.



According to News of the World and the Sydney Morning Herald, the couple will honeymoon for two weeks after the royal wedding in London.

They have booked a week-long tour of southern Jordan, taking in some of the country's most famous sites, including the ancient city of Petra and the desert valley of Wadi Rum.

Their base, however, is believed to be a luxury villa in Aqaba, owned by the royal family of Jordan.

King Abdullah and Queen Rania are also invited to the royal wedding - although their attendance was not confirmed by 23rd April 2011.

Update: King Abdullah and Queen Rania were not present at the British royal wedding in London. As Queen Rania posted on Twitter, she spent a "Wonderful day in front of the TV with the kids watching fairytale wedding of William and Kate."

The Royal Palace in Aqaba

quoted from News of the World

The villa, part of King Abdullah II's lavish personal summer palace, is in Red Sea resort Aqaba.

A source close to the Jordanian Royal Family told us: "The King has known the British Royal Family all his life and knew he could offer the newlyweds privacy unlike anywhere else in the world. It is completely isolated and hidden from prying eyes. After sharing their wedding with billions of others it will suit William and Kate perfectly. "The King has made his summer palace impregnable. His father King Hussein suffered 37 assassination attempts on his life and over the years the Aqaba palace has been turned into a fortress."

Towers manned around the clock by armed guards and palm trees line miles of beach where Wills and Kate will be able to sunbathe unseen and enjoy water-skiing and tennis.

A helicopter pad on the villa's roof will allow the newlyweds to travel to visit some of the wonders Jordan offers tourists, including Petra, the city carved into a mountain in 1200BC.

Inside the villa, the couple will have their own butler and team of staff. The palace's huge kitchens have world-class chefs and the bathrooms are furnished with gold taps and marble floors.

It is said to have been decorated by Abdullah's wife Queen Rania, who is noted for her elegant but laid-back sense of style. Our insider added: "While being incredibly luxurious it's also cosy. The family are very down-to-earth."

AMMAN AIRPORT TRANSFER

Amman Airport Private Arrival/Departure Transfer

Reviewed by Donald G, May 2011:

"Driver and vehicle were very acceptable - and in light of the driving/vehicle conditions in Amman this was most welcome. The service is on the expensive side when compared with the local taxi service but, in my opinion, most worthwhile. The driver was welcoming and very helpful. Luggage handling was completely handled at both ends of the trip in a very professional manner. I would definitely use this service again."
