"Is the reward of goodness anything but goodness" is the foundation our brand is shaped upon where it is the source of inspiration to self and others.

AL DAIF

We are the representation of noble Bedouin hospitality where we will always serve our guests before ourselves. The sense of selflessness is limitless; loyalty will be retained through authentic and genuine experiences - experiences that last a lifetime.

The 10 Chambers

The four pillars of Jannah are our company’s primary attributes. We thought it would be a great idea to provide you with a sneak peek into our inner chambers. The 10 Chambers of Jannah form the core of our belief system as First Class Ambassadors.

Our Diversity is Our Strength

Following our belief system at Jannah Hotels & Resorts, we work as a team with its purest meaning, discussions precede in order not to jeopardize the company's mission, vision or reputation.

Execute than Object

We follow orders knowing it is in our company's best interest, and after execution we express our thoughts with a moderate tone of voice. First Class employees do not compete but they complete each other.

No Other Jannah Company

If mankind came together, they would not be able to make another company like our company.

A Rumor is a Social Cancer

As a First Class Ambassador, we will refrain from spreading rumors or disclosing information about Ambassadors, Ministers, Guests or anyone that has direct internal or external contact with Jannah Hotels & Resorts.

The Foundation of Humility

Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. Planning a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.

The Arrogant will be expelled.I promise you

Be Like Water, My Friend

Empty your mind, be formless and shapeless like water, and remember we are all water - water has no shape, no color and no smell.

No Secret is Revealed

We are building a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines financial, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and sales and marketing operations. So our preparations are concealed, not published. Our mistakes are buried not headlined. ”No rumor is printed, no secret is revealed."

First Class

I witness that We are a First Class company, serving First Class guests and we hire only First Class talents.

I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

The more you read, the more you will know. The more you learn, the more places you will go. Jannah is committed in the investment of educating its Ambassadors. Do not ask what Jannah will teach, but ask what you will teach Jannah.

Possible Perfection

Do not mistake activity with achievement. Never settle for anything less than perfection, never produce anything less than perfection. Perfection is possible.

The Story Behind The Name

Life is full of interesting characters.

Years ago, Jannah Hotels & Resorts' Chief Executive Officer, Nehme Imad Darwiche, got to meet just such a character - a real life Bedouin.

The Bedouin taught him countless things about the desert, shared his stories about life and highlighted what to do in order to survive.

This meeting sparked a vision.
 
One night, Nehme dreamt he was watching his Bedouin friend planting olive trees in the desert. Amazed, he asked him how these trees would be able to grow in the arid sand. The Bedouin answered him that these were not normal olive trees – they would flourish, bear turquoise stones, bring water to the land and give life.

The Birth of Jannah Hotels & Resorts' Logo

Today, Jannah Hotels & Resorts logo is an embodiment of this vision, represented by an olive tree carrying turquoise stones. To the dreamer, the olive trees in the desert appear as a paradisiacal garden of possibility and potential. ‘Jannah’ is Arabic for ‘paradise’ or short for ‘garden’, thereby being the perfect word to describe the dream’s essence and headline the company’s name: Jannah Hotels & Resorts.
