Excellent location in the south of the Wadi Dana Nature Reserve. Basic, but very clean accomodation. Candle illumination (occasional use of torchlight) contributes to the authenticity of the experience Food is simple Jordanian cuisine, but prepared in an honest way and of very good quality (great local bread!!). Well guided nightly "star-gazing" on the rooftop We made a stunning hike... More

I stayed at the Eco Lodge 2 days ago for one night. The hotel is not up to expectations vs what is promised on the website. Very low quality price. Lazy and bored staff sleeping during the day on the common areas of the hotel or hanging out in the hotel rooms. It is too bad as it could be... More

If someone can get around the end of Ramadan, school holidays and the misconceived security threats centered around the Middle East region, and tell me why we were the only guests. This place is amazing and has to be shared, the whole environment is out of this world and everyone must go - especially any budding environmental, ecological, geological, archaeological... More

We walked from Dana village (approx 16km) down to the Feynan lodge and stayed for one night. BLUF: Overpriced for what it is. The staff were very friendly and amenable, the activities offered were basic but entertaining, the food was okay, all vegetarian and quite basic, the rooms were okay but do not have AC. I see no reason why... More

After a long day hiking through nearby Wadi Ghuweir with a group from Experience Jordan, we spent a welcome nights refuge from the blistering heat in this unique Eco- lodge. The staff of mainly young men from the local Bedouin families are all very friendly and anxious to share information and other available activities such as sunset hikes and star... More

We recently spent two nights at the Feynan Ecolodge and are so glad we did. It was our first experience at an Ecolodge, and our expectations were absolutely exceeded. We currently live in Amman, and drove the 2.5 hours down the Dead Sea highway to the Feynan reception center. There we were met by a local Bedouin for the final... More

First of all it is a unique place. The staff is very friendly and we had talked with them a lot about Bedouins and their life. The food was ok and fresh juices were yummy, especially the Hibiscus juice. But there were only 2 or 3 rooms at the same time (we stayed 2 nights) and that felt me like... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a longer holiday touring round Jordan. Its a bit out of the way and requires a 30 minute off road journey to get to the lodge but local transfers can be arranged and are a good fun start to your stay. The lodge is beautiful, well designed, calming and tranquil. Arriving... More

Had an amazing time here with a great range of activities to undertake so stay at least 2 nights. Staff were very helpful as it was unusually warm so reorganised the walk to account for this, and well as the trip to see how kohl is made by the Bedouins. They also repaired my shoe for me in the workshop.... More

We stayed here for only one night, sadly, but this hotel made its impression. Definitely worth the trek to get there. We loved the stargazing and the friendly, knowledgable staff. The food was also by far the best we had in Jordan and dining by starlight was incredible. The rooms were comfortable and the balcony was lovely. We loved it!
