I visited this location four times in the last few years. my most recent was to photograph some of the surrounding landscape for a book. Positive: the lodge is an amazing experience and a joy to see how ecologically conscious they were. The place has an interesting combination of amazing landscape and deep history. The people who work there are... More

We went hiking all day (8 hours) in Wadi Gwayr with Suleyman and highly recommend both the hike and all of the RSCN guides (we have also gone previously on other routes with Mohammad).... But this was one of our favorite hikes and great to do in the spring/summer as you are in water at least 50 percent of the... More

It's a very peaceful and quiet place. Make sure you are going there to relax and have a quiet time. There's not much happening so go with fun people and perhaps a few games. The stargazing evening is great. Day time hikes and trips are alright but don't expect to see animals and encounter adventures. The healthy vegetarian dinner is... More

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
