The Weekender – 10 NYE Staycations

2020 has been like the toxic ex who cannot love you but will not leave you. And sure curfew has been good to those with a serious case of FOMO, but let’s be frank, drinking on New Year’s with your favorite humans only to be home by 10:00 pm seems like a waste of perfectly good alcohol. And it will not help you let go. Going on a hedonic binge for two nights, that will give you the closure you deserve. Read on for a handpicked list of New Year’s events where you can party where you sleep!

Fly out of 2020 with one of InterContinental Amman’s staycation packages. Our pick; set menu dinner at Winter Garden, music by resident DJ Wassem Albaz and a hearty Friday lunch at Cinco De Mayo to take care of that post wilding-out hangover. Did we mention you get 50% off on bottles too?

Bid 2020 adieu and go off on an urban getaway at the Four Seasons Hotel Amman. Get to know 2021 over a New Year’s Eve dinner at La Capitale and a Friday brunch at Olea. Continental breakfast will be served in your room, because food in your bed will not wake up one day and tell you it does not love you anymore. 

While it is enticing to want to stay home on New Year’s Eve and have much needed alone time after this extraordinary year. We trust spending it nestled in the heart of Amman for two nights with your person, enjoying New Year’s Eve dinner then gobbling down hotel breakfast will revive you for 2021. 

Sure all that glitters is not gold. But golden welcome cocktails and dessert stations are close enough. Feel rich as you usher in the new year dressed in all gold, feasting on one of the many live cooking stations and dancing to live entertainment at Grand Hyatt Amman Glitter and Gold party.

Lockdown in 2020 made people feel like they were stuck in a recurring loop. The concept of time got lost on most. In case another error in the simulation breaks out at the dawn of 2021, wouldn’t you rather be at a luxurious hotel room with full board accommodation that indulges all your senses.

Escape the glitch in the matrix this year has been, and embark on an off grid experience at Ma’in Hot Springs. Let the thermal waterfalls wash away every inch of you and detox 2020 out of your system.

Create new memories and tell 2020 ‘Hasta la vista, baby’ at Le Royal Hotels and Resorts with a live band, dinner, and breakfast for two whole freakin nights. Document those new, foggy, memories with a photoshoot on the house.  

Grab a fork and dig into the different cuisines at the Amman Marriott Hotel New Year’s Eve dinner and call it cultural exchange. It is the closest to foreign you have come across this whole year!

Sun City Camp promises an otherworldly experience if you have a taste for the mystical. Set your intentions for the New Year at the Valley of the Moon while glimpsing the Seven Pillars of Wisdom Mountains. Emerge from the heart of the desert and leave 2020 feeling as one. 

If you are more into greens than dunes then Feynan Ecolodge is for you. Their inclusive package is full of wholesome, wellness, activities. Our favorite: stargazing. No need to pretend that airplanes in the night sky are shooting stars, you will see all the stars you need to make a wish right now.

Party responsibly and stay safe, Tipsters!
