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

There are not enough words to express my thoughts and feelings about the Lodge. I have just returned after my third stay and the whole experience was fabulous - the rooms are beautful, the food is fresh, healthy and far too tasty!! The main reason I return, however, is because of the wonderful team of people who are so kind,... More

I stayed only one night at the ecolodge but I wish I'd stayed longer. The people are very welcoming, the food is nice and the scenary is amazing! The only downside for me us the transportation when you are on a budget. We took the public bus from Feynan to Amman at 6:00 in the morning because none in the... More

Stayed here with a group before doing the Dana to Petra trail hiking through the desert. What a lovely place this is and easy to see why it win so many awards. Very nice rooms and lots of emphasis on sustainability. At night you can watch stars and use telescope on the rooftop. My only suggestions for improvement would be... More

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
