Ayla Oasis Development Company (Ayla) announced that Ayla Marina, part of the Ayla project in the Kingdom of Jordan, has obtained the membership of the esteemed The Yacht Harbor Association (TYHA) – becoming the first marina to be part of the distinguished group in the entire Gulf of Aqaba and one of only three marinas located along the Red Sea to obtain international affiliation.


Ayla Marina’s affiliation to TYHA, the trade association for the development of coastal and inland boating facilities, comes as part of its sustained efforts to achieve excellence and to provide the highest quality of services on par with international standards.


The membership will enable the marina to get all its assets, services, staff, operating procedures, service quality, safety and security standards, and environment protection procedures audited by TYHA on a regular basis to ensure that the marina consistently meets the required standards.


The largest marina in Aqaba, Ayla Marina will feature 231 berths in phase one and 300 berths once completed. The project also includes a 118 berth Marina Dry Stack, the first of its kind in the region.

Captain Munis Al Momani, Ayla Marina Manager, said: “We are proud to join TYHA as part of our continued efforts to improve our boating, yachting and marina standards. This membership is the first step towards acquiring the Gold Anchor Award, where Ayla Marina is vying for the Five Golden Anchor Marina rating – the highest rating for marinas around the world.”


Al Momani added: “In joining TYHA, we will ensure that the best industry standards and credibility measures are maintained in the construction and operations of Ayla Marina. The membership will also allow us to promote Aqaba as an internationally recognized boating destination in Jordan.”


Ayla Marina is designed to accommodate boats of up to 40 m Long and 4 m Draft, and will provide exceptional facilities and services in line with the highest international standards.


Spanning over 4,320 Donum (4,320,000 sq m) and boasting 235 meters of sea-front on the Gulf of Aqaba, Ayla adds 17 km of waterfront to the picturesque coastline. When completed, the project will feature a wide range of apartments with panoramic views and an 18-hole signature golf course designed by Greg Norman as well as a nine-hole golf academy. In addition, it will comprise Jordan’s largest marina – the Marina Village – that will serve as a commercial hub.
