Al Matal is a new 2500 dunum (2.5 million sqm) resort on a mountainous site located in the south of Jordan, overlooking the Gulf of Aqaba. This new development, established by the Aqaba Development Corporation, will feature a 100 dunum artificial lake, a panoramic road and a cable car connecting the resort to the coastal area, which will offer the city’s visitors with a unique experience looking across the Red Sea and Aqaba’s mountains.

In 2016, Engicon and Praxis were assigned the design of the resort’s masterplan, the drafting of tender documents, and the preparation of the environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA).  Engicon and Praxis worked on the planning and design of infrastructure utilities, as well as the geotechnical investigation. In 2019, the construction supervision of Al Matal Resort was also awarded to Engicon. The project is expected to be completed by end of 2023.
