Reimagine life

Set between the mountains and the Red Sea, Ayla is the ideal destination to be inspired, live life filled with sun, sea, music, art, sports and explore hiking in historical Petra or camping in Wadi Rum.

Ayla Oasis Development Company was established in 2002, creating the blueprint for the development known simply as AYLA, with the vision to build an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable destination to support Jordan’s aggressive economic growth strategy.

Jordan’s historic city of Aqaba is located on the Red Sea, has 27km of shoreline and is quickly becoming a major tourist destination for both local and international visitors.

Artistically sculpted out of the coastal desert landscape, Ayla adds an additional 17 kilometers of waterfront living to the Aqaba coastline. The destination provides a thoughtfully curated mix of residential, touristic, commercial and entertainment offers, creating a vibrant and dynamic community in a truly idyllic setting.


GETTING HERE - On the shoreline of Aqaba, Ayla is easily accessible from local transport hubs, with plenty of options available to help you get around.
