Community Events

Did you know that our store is open year-round? Throughout the year, we host a number of seasonal events in hopes of bringing the community together to engage in fun, educational, and crafty activities. During March Break, we invite families to participate in daily activities like plant potting, rock painting, and more.

In April, we host our Spring Open House, which welcomes the growing season and highlights the arrival of our spring collections. Our Pumpkin Painting event in October is a yearly favourite. Finally, during Christmas, we hold our Christmas Open House where we host a weekend of festive workshops and welcome our community to browse our holiday themes.

Amman Accommodation: Kempinski Hotel

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting such a nice hotel to be part of a tour. Kempinski Hotel was in a great location in Amman’s central business district, the service was outstanding, and the rooms were very comfortable with the biggest and best pillows I’ve ever had. The bathroom towels were gigantic and just as luxurious as the fluffy robe. I couldn’t have wished for a more comfortable bed for the 13 hour sleep I had on my first evening - after 30 hours without it.

Spending 15 minutes each day in the complimentary steam and sauna room in the Spa helped me recover from jet lag. The buffet breakfast and dinners were also delicious and full of Jordanian food. Hotel breakfast and dinner buffets are included in the Globus tour. There are local restaurants within walking distance to the hotel if you want to eat out. You will love having 5 Star accommodation at affordable prices on your Escape by Globus tours.

Return After A Long Week Of Memories

What you do on this final day of your Jordan tour depends on what time you are flying out. Globus will transfer you directly to Amman airport from the Movenpick Resort and Spa.

Hot Tip: My flight was early morning, so I left the resort about 10pm. Had I known how great the Dead Sea Resort and Spa was, I would have delayed my flight until the following day and stayed an extra night and morning.
