Spacious, two-bedroom, marina and sea-view apartment within the recently-built luxury Tala Bay resort, literally on the shores of the Red Sea, just south of the dynamic city of Aqaba. Winters are like a good English summer, the sea is always warm enough for swimming, there's coral within 8 metres of the beach and it's the perfect location for a different and memorable holiday.

Tala Bay offers diving, snorkeling, cruises, wind and kite surfing, jet skis and other water sports; as well as good restaurants and bars, boutiques, a supermarket, gift and fashion stores; plus eight swimming pools.

Nearby Aqaba is a busy city with a small fishing port, bars and some nightlife, as well as local markets and tourist shops. And within an hour or two's drive you can be in Petra (one of the seven modern Wonders of the World) or in Wadi Rum (one of the most special places on earth). The area is steeped in history, from the Nabateans to Lawrence of Arabia.

This is a luxury apartment in a luxury development. It has a big balcony and huge roof, both with views over the marina and across the Red Sea, just 50 metres away. Fully-equipped, high-quality kitchen, two bathrooms, close to restaurants and boutiques - everything you need for the perfect relaxing, interesting holiday.

However, it is not perfect for people who need to be entertained all the time or require discos and diversions! It can be quiet and peaceful, except during the big local holiday weekends, when it is busy.

Further details indoors

Our own web-site (see link at the bottom of this page) includes more photographs of the apartment. It is furnished and decorated in a high-end, simple European style (not ornate Arabic), but with local rugs and local paintings. The kitchen is well-equipped for all kinds of cooking, though without a dish-washer (bring or buy locally a tea-towel or two). The apartment can be provided fully-serviced if you want! (ie cleaned every day, with even the washing up done for you).

Besides all the obvious luxury facilities, there is a small tent which many children love to sleep in on the big roof! There are hooks for a hammock on the roof, overlooking the busy marina. And there is a simple local bar-b-q, along with many deck chairs, a marble table, two fold-away dining tables, two loungers and a huge rug.

Further details outdoors

You are in the best location in the whole development, right at the entrance to the marina. From the apartment you can watch the boats coming and going or look across the sea to Eilat in Israel and Taba in Egypt. The entrance to the apartment is on the marina itself, with palm trees, greenery and a nearby cafe/pub. An evening stroll around the marina can take an hour, if you come back along the beach and stop for a drink or window-shop. There's plenty to watch and enjoy and although the temperature can be high in the summer, there is a lot of shade, the balcony is cool and north-facing and normally there's a gentle, refreshing breeze from the north, along Wadi Araba that makes even hot days very bearable.

The beaches are well equipped with loungers and sun-shades and fresh-water showers. There are several luxury swimming pools, including a smaller heated swimming pool at the Beach Club, for which there is a small charge.

Further details

We will provide free holiday advice and suggestions for anyone staying in the apartment who has not visited Jordan before. They will have a wonderful, memorable holiday but Jordan is not a cheap option. However, where else in the world are there so many globally-important places to visit in such a small area; including Petra, Wadi Rum, the coral of Aqaba and the Dead Sea (all within easy reach of Tala Bay).

The apartment is available by the week but we are happy to talk about special rates for longer stays -- we have often thought it would make a perfect winter-sunshine holiday for people wanting to stay for a month or more; we can help you negotiate very good rates for car hire, etc. And if you are in Jordan anyway, the minimum rental we will consider is two days.

We believe our apartment is one of the best located in the whole Tala Bay development but if it is already let out, or if you need somewhere bigger or smaller, then we have friends in Tala Bay with apartments they also rent out.

The Al Aqabah Governorate region

Aqaba is a busy city with a small fishing port, bars and some nightlife, as well as local markets and tourist shops and the best shwarma restaurant in Jordan!! It has not yet lost its small-town charm and individuality but the plans are to expand it to well over 100,000 people with 5* hotels, restaurants and other attractions to match. It will take some years, so for now you can still enjoy the best of both worlds, with many modern facilities and vastly improved roads and yet still feel you have stepped back to an earlier age.

Aqaba is also an ideal base for exploring Southern Jordan. Within an hour or two's drive you can be in Petra (one of the seven modern Wonders of the World) or in Wadi Rum (one of the most special places on earth).

The desert is extraordinarily beautiful. If you're adventurous we can show you the back route from Wadi Araba (the long valley linking the Dead Sea to Aqaba) up through the mountains to the back entrance to Petra -- more hairpins bends than the Lake District and views you will never forget.

For anyone who's not been to Jordan before, we will provide, for no extra cost, advice and ideas for making the most of this wonderful country. A bedouin friend of ours runs individual tours around Wadi Rum (see www.wadirumtours.com) and if you stay overnight with him (and not in the apartment) we will refund you his camping charges!!

Aqaba

Tala Bay offers diving, snorkeling, cruises, ferries to Egypt, wind and kite surfing, jet skis and other water sports; as well as good restaurants and bars, boutiques, a supermarket, gift and fashion stores.

The beaches are well equipped with loungers and sun-shades and fresh-water showers. There are several luxury swimming pools, including a smaller heated swimming pool at the Beach Club, for which there is a small charge.

A golf course is planned but will take another few years.

"Peaceful luxury, incredibly helpful people."

This home is so beautiful, and peaceful. The views from the roof top deck (and really, from the entire place) are epic. There is a large well-appointed kitchen, and a shop within walking distance. But really the biggest benefit is getting email assistance from Tudor. Not only did he make my time in Aqaba flawless, he facilitated a connection with Saleh and Alia (and Atique as well!) for an unforgettable adventure in Wadi Rum. I highly recommend this place and all of these people. You will wish for more time.

"clean, spaceous and amazing view"

We had a great time. The apartment is located next to the beach with the balcony over the marina. It is a beautiful view. There are also several restaurants/cafes right next door. For meals inside there is a general store around the corner with anything you could need and the prices are good. It is the perfect location for everything you could want/need! The house is in great shape, the furniture still looks quite new.

"Another perfect holiday in Tudors tala bay apartment"

Having already stayed at Tudors tala bay aqaba apartment last year we had no hesitation in booking it again this year and we were not disappointed. This apartment definitely has the best spot with an amazing view from the balcony and roof terrace. Even the rear of the flat looks out over beautiful flowering trees and gardens. The beach is superb and the complex kept to an exceptionally high standard. The apartment is welcoming due to the art and other personal bits and pieces and does not feel like a rental property it feels like a home! Thank you Tudor and Brenda for our great holiday and can't wait to come back

"Brilliant"

The apartment and facilities are exactly as described, ie extremely comfortable in a superb location within a purpose built luxury development. A nearby restaurant is good as is the basic but adequate mini supermarket. It is a great base from which to explore southern Jordan - Petra, Wadi Rum, Crusader castles, Red Sea diving, etc in addition to the sea and beach facilities being very close (40 metres!). A car is highly recommended since it is about 15kms south of Aqaba, where there are plenty of shops including a Safeway store. All in all very highly recommended for those of a reasonably independent mind

"Tala Bay – lovely apartment with outstanding views"

We stayed for a week and it was truly idyllic. The apartment was modern and spacious, yet still felt cosy enough for a couple and was so relaxing. The website description is comprehensive, but you need to be there to experience first hand, the scenic views and feel the warm northerly breeze......it was a fantastic start to each day rivalled only by sunset suppers on the beach and the atmospheric roof garden. Tala bay is lovely to walk around day and night with designer shopping and a couple of nice eating places. When you fancy something a bit livelier it is easy to head into the hustle bustle of Aqaba town centre (about 15mins by car)- the markets and many restaurants near the beach or in town. There is lots of lovely fresh produce and just try freshly baked Jordanian date bread. To truly soak up the culture, the best day is Friday (traditional rest day) when couples, friends and families alike head off to the beach, shopping or eating out night and day. Be prepared for how busy places and traffic is though!!. Car hire is advantageous, though travel is straightforward by taxi or service bus (blue) outside the complex. If you get your own taxi make sure you agree the price first as it varies significantly. This apartment also provided a great base to explore Petra and Wadi Rum (about 1-1.5 hours away) which are spectacular. Once again, the customer service from Tudor for our holiday was exemplary. The thing we liked the least was leaving!! (we hope to return)

Would certainly highly recommend.

"I'll be back"

This is the best trip I've ever made and there's been a few, took a cheap flight from Gothenburg approx. 1100 eu. for 5 persons to Amman and back. Got picked up there by a local hired guide and drove to Aqaba, it takes ca 3 hrs but there is things to see on the way so this is ok but there is an airport in Aqaba as well. The apartment is in Tala bay which is a few mins. outside the city so there is no traffic noise and it's like 1-2 mins. walk to restaurants and bars pool (mother of all pools i guess) and the view is breath taking, on good day (there is about 250 of them) you can see for miles from roof terrace. The beach was no good for me but if you're into this scuba thingii this is the place for you, but again the pool is great. The apartment it selves is excellent easily sleeps 5-6 persons it's possible for 8-10 (this is my opinion) Very good ac all over, nice kitchen fridge oven washing machine, in short therms you will not be missing anything. What to see? Got go to Wadi rum and have tea in the sunset (we did it twice), Petra, Dead sea. If you haven't been to Jordan You should......

"Brilliant apartment, loved it."

Great apartment with loads of space. All mod cons. You might want to try and find a supermarket in Aqaba for your main shopping.

"Tala Bay - Great apartment in the loveliest part of Aqaba"

This is a privately owned apartment, so is excellently equipped and a real home from home. It is up a flight of stairs so difficult with babies (though a friend managed fine!) or the disabled. We have stayed here in mid summer and early winter and can recommend both. One main bedroom with A/C, a mezzanine bedroom now with A/C and a large kitchen/dining/sitting room also with A/C. Main bathroom and sep. loo and shower. Gorgeous views from sitting room balcony and rooftop over the marina and Red Sea. We comfortably slept 6 and could get more in if kids were on the roof in a tent (very safe and cool with great views). Tala bay is the best place to stay in Aqaba if you are into sea-life as there is none in the town itself - excellent reefs and snorkelling from this end of town. Great diving and snorkelling at Seastar Divers. Only drawback is you are a long way from town. If you don't want to self cater (and it is easy to cook here with a good supermarket just next door), there are two restaurants on the marina, both of which are good, and the nearby Marina Plaza hotel has great food reasonably priced for dinner. There is also the Radison SAS nearby, but you would need a taxi or car to go into Aqaba for the excellent Chinese (behind Mcdonalds) or fish at Floka (Nr the Alcazar hotel).
