In January 2015 the World Travel and Tourism Council announced the 15 finalists for the prestigious Tourism for Tomorrow Awards 2015. Feynan Ecolodge has been nominated in the Community Award category.

"All of this has been achieved against not only the challenges of the desert, but also the current unrest affecting its neighbours in the Middle East (Jordan has borders with Iraq, Syria, Israel and Saudi Arabia), which has affected tourist numbers to Jordan as well. As a result of its efforts, Feynan's business has grown by 28% since 2012, while the tourism sector in the country has fallen. The secret of their success may be steeped in hundreds of years of culture, but it is one they share with their guests every day."
