Beit Zaman's design and architecture is stunning - high over Petra, it is a whole 'converted' village, very tastefully done. Bits of tthe old ruins have been kept; there are pleasant gardens, terraces and cute little courtyards. The rooms themselves are large and very comfortable, although, in line with the traditional village, most tend to face into courtyards rather than benefit from the views.
However, the service is pretty average, at times verging on the unfriendly (eg not being prepared to print a map - it's not entirely easy to find if you're driving). The restaurant caters to tour groups, with only a 'fair' standard (the a la carte at lunch was good, but they refused a la carte at dinner), internet was patchy, and email exchanges erratic.
So it all rather depends what you value most - the architecture, design, and comfort of the rooms, or the service/kitchen. We thought it was reasonably good value compared to the other 'luxury' choices, but it depends what rate you can negotiate (there is definitely room for negotiation, if you can get them to respond to emails). Also Wadi Musa seems to have rather suffered from mass tourism generally, so to judge by the reviews of some of the other places, the issues with service may be widespread.
