For someone that is constantly working and connected to technology, this was a much needed experience. Making it a point to totally disconnect from technology and embracing the simplicity of life...Feynan was the place to be :) We arrived there at around 3pm and were greeted by the very friendly staff, all of whom are local bedouins which added to...

FANTASTIC! Stunning sunset hike, followed by a star & candle lit dinner, no electricity after sunset; just candles lighting up the whole hotel, then star-gazing on the roof top. Extremely relaxing. The next day a water canyon hike- we chose the 8 hour route, pretty adventurous and fun! The staff were phenomenal. They were extremely helpful on so many levels-... More

It was a very pleasant experience to be able to learn about the Bedouin culture and traditions while sharing with the local community and enjoying the amazing landscaping near the lodge. Our hotel guide, Suleman, is a wonderful person that shared with us stories and cultural experiences that allowed us to understand more their interesting way of living. The lodge... More

We stayed in lodges for a night. We were group of 5 families. It was good fun staying overnight and enjoying the surrounding. If you are looking for absolute comfort this is not the place to go. Must visit at least once. Good though vegetarian was good specially after the sunset point walk.

Faynan Ecolodge is a magic, silent and peaceful place. Fully surronded by nature: desert, moutanins, goats, and just sky upon you (there is a telescope on the roof, and at night you can live an amazing experience). The local staff is great, helpful, friendly and eager to share everything they can (culture, knowledge, a smile). Every meal is totally traditional... More

Would really have wished to stay a further night. Good ensuite room and though facilities in this Eco hotel classed as simple, you do not miss anything more if you love to sample the simple environment. See the stars. The sunset, walk near the Bedouin camps. Eat vegetarian. And be removed from mass tourism. Great staff.

If you are interested in a relaxing informative stay with walks in a quiet area away from the crowds this is the place. Despite the cost it is not a five star hotel in terms of facilities or service but in an alternative way better for being that. I was not impressed by the food but my wife thought it... More

Dear Headington Thanks so much for your review of your time at Feynan. I'm really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and took part in so many of our interesting hikes. I just wanted to apologise again for the issue with your transfer. That was an error on our side and should not have happened. As you know... More

Having read the reviews of fellow travellers we expected to be overwhelmed by both nature and hosts. Unfortunately neither lived fully up to the expectation. The wadi's are nice for a hike but miss the sublime of wadi rum or mujib. We did see a blue lizard, but that was the most striking encounter. The staff was nice, but somewhat... More

Like many other reviewers, my only regret about visiting Feynan (and all of Jordan) is that I didn't spend more time here. Feynan Ecolodge is a very special place, with amazing staff and neighbours. I could easily picture spending a week here and only uncovering a portion of what the area has to offer. Each day, a listing of available... More

The lodge itself is excellent, the food was really good although I'm not a vegetarian, the staff were friendly and helpful, the beds were really comfortable. However, the time I've picked for my trip wasn't perfect, the weather was hazy so we couldn't do much stargazing, there was a sandstorm in the night which was a bit annoying but it's... More
