everyone should stay here! totally self-contained, with solar-power, solar-heated water and candles -- wow such a different view of space and people in magical candle-light. . . . it is seriously like stepping into another world. . . in many different ways! and very very good food and service, wonderfully thoughtful and competent local staff from the nearby bedouin community,...

We very much enjoyed staying at the lodge and where taken by the wadis and nature around us. We also had a very good and knowledgeable guide called Ali who was very well informed about wildlife and told us lovely Beduin stories and poems. The staff was generally very friendly. We would have loved to stay longer but felt that... More

My only regret is that I didn't arrive earlier in the day to enjoy this beautiful place more. A stunning bonus was the young worker who is also an astronomy buff. The lodge has a telescope on the roof terrace and he was happy to show us planets and stars (until the cold got the better of us). Absolutely delicious... More

We stayed at Feynan Ecolodge for one night towards the end of February. It was cold which didn't help. The staff are extremely friendly and try really, really hard with a short presentation on the lodge and surrounding area. They offer a variety of hikes, take you up on the roof to view the stars and you can even help... More

We just concluded a two-night stay at Feynan Eco Lodge. There were three main highlights: the Bedouin knowledge and hospitality, the food, and the hikes. The Bedouin staff were phenomenal. We learned from them about the stars in the desert night sky, and customs of the villagers who reside in the surrounding goat-hair tents. The food is all vegetarian, in... More

We stayed in the ecolodge for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and we would especially like to thank Suleiman for his excellent advise on where to walk and what to see. My meat eater boyfriend was slightly worried about the vegetarian food but it was... More

Perfect place to refill the batteries! Visited at the end of January and found it as a perfect timing. Sunny, but not too warm. A bit cold in the evening, but were saved with a fireplace which are few in the hotel and which gave us such a calmness and space to think on our own. And of course hundreds... More

Living in Amman, it is really necessary to get out of town regularly. 5 of us -- all friends from three continents -- decided to leave the winter weather of Amman and get some peace and quiet in Feynan. We are happy we did. Feynan Ecolodge is as "far away" as you can get from the urban centers of Jordan.... More

Just do it...even in winter you wont regret it. Special mention to the amazing local staff, especially Suleiman, whose knowledge and wisecracks made our experience that much more special. We were unlucky with the weather so didnt hike but did make the most through the activities on offer, we especially liked coffee with the bedouins.

Value for money absolutely incredible: very expensive!!! Interesting the philosophy of the project but lack of information about environment, culture and nature. Around the lodge trash and plastic everywhere, our room in january very cold and sad ( in the web site pictures shows rooms very cozy and full of charme). Food generally poor. Trekking organised by local guide very... More
