A peaceful, calming oasis run on green credentials. Hot showers but no electric light, only candles. Vegetarian food, sourced as much as possible from the local community. The lodge is creating an income for approx 80 Bedouin families who live nearby. Recommended as one of the places to stay in Jordan. Guided walks of different lengths available, mountain bikes can...

Feynan Visiting the Feynan (FEE-nan) Ecolodge in the Dana (DAH-nah) Biosphere is an amazing and unique experience. Mind you, it is not as amazing and unique as you expect, but even so if you like a little adventure, do it. Pros: A courteous, professional staff will take care of your itinerary without error. The lodge offers beautiful rooms with clean... More

We stayed for two nights recently and very much enjoyed the friendly staff who went out of their way to please and inform us. Our walk up the valley the next day gave us a real sense of the local Ecology, given a deeper meaning by the information provided by our guide. The highlight was goat yoghurt served to us... More

If you are planning on going to Wadi Rum, don't bother to stop here. The scenery is nowhere near as spectacular and at the end of the day the only exceptional thing about this "Eco Lodge" is they turn off the electricity in the evening and use candles instead. We enjoyed our stay but certainly would not return. The food... More

Feynan was exactly what I expected and a wonderful experience. I wanted to go somewhere relaxing and quiet and convinced my two friends to come along. We visited in January and the room was a bit chilly but the staff brought us hot water bottles for our beds. The lack of electricity anywhere but the bathroom was not a problem... More

I'm still not quite sure whether this place is a serious attempt to get closer to nature or a deliberate rip off where the locals are laughing all the way to the bank. From the start I thought the cost of transport from the local town to the lodge in a decrepit old pickup was excessive. The cost of dinner,... More

Slightly on the expensive side but a great experience nonetheless. The food was superb. The surroundings peaceful. This was the place where I actually saw more women than in other Bedouin areas. So thank you Feynan for involving the ladies. It was a great atmosphere which was only spoiled by the customers who brought in bottles of whisky and wine.... More

In late February I spent a fantastic night at Feynan ecolodge to celebrate my birthday with a group of friends. The lodge is great - there are nice out door spaces to relax, a very comfortable lounge area and very friendly and helpful staff, particularly the guides. The food is very good (vegetarian) and the star gazing was spectacular -... More

When my boyfriend arrived at the Eco Lodge (after about 20 min of 4X4 transfert), we were just in the middle of nowhere, which was even more impressive. We were right away amazed by the atmosphere: the place was really great and all the candles (it was about 7pm) illuminated the place...that was just wonderfull !!!! It could have been... More

The emphasis of the lodge is on being ecologically friendly, and that is too be applauded. The only light in the public areas and the bedrooms is candle light after dusk. Thankfully there is electric light in the bathrooms, and hot water from solar. The rooms are simple but comfortable and all is clean. The staff is professional and helpful... More
