"Everything about this place screams sustainability but in a way that is entirely comfortable"
“Mohammed, the wonderful local guide who had led us down the canyon from Dana the previous day, showing us birds and wildlife and the plants the Bedouin used to make shampoo or help diabetes, told us how tourism has improved the lives of his family.”
"Whether partaking in a hike led by a local eco guide… visiting Bedouin homes for a sampling of local culture … guests are submerged in the authentic Bedouin lifestyle."
"Feynan offers guests an experience beyond the usual restaurant meal: vegetarian spreads eaten in view of mountainscapes dotted with goats trotting past across the red sand."
Feynan Ecolodge is "truly one of the most charming places I have stayed in. After the 16 km trek, it was an oasis. The rooms are beautiful, the beds comfortable and the dinner absolutely delicious. It is also the sort of place where you would meet other like-minded travellers, and we had a lovely dinner with two others."
"this is the Real Deal when it comes to ecotourism – a must-visit hotel for anyone keen to be green – while its shabby-chic style will gratify connoisseurs of interior design"
“We stand at a frontier in human consciousness. Wadi Feynan divides everything we know today from everything that has been forgotten.”
"I instantly understood why so many of the ecolodge’s guests choose to hike there, to earn the privilege and to arrive not just as some Westerner, but as a guest with a slightly better understanding of the beautiful reserve around them and why it is so very important to preserve"
"A stay at Feynan requires a healthy sense of adventure, with a host of activities on offer, including hikes through the russet-coloured, mars-like terrain"
“From the outside it looks like it has risen straight from the desert floor. Inside, candles illuminate simple interiors at night, making the 26 stone rooms, library and communal dining area romantic and glamorous.”
