Reviews and Awards
“If you do only one thing in Jordan… go stargazing at Feynan.”
“As Jordan develops into a niche ecotourism destination of world renown, so one small project rapidly gaining a reputation as the country’s - if not the Middle East’s - leading example of how sustainable development can run hand-in-hand with low-impact nature tourism.”
Nominated in Conde Nast Espana's Gold List 2015 for best hotel around the world, outside the city

"I’m all for sustainable travel, but I also like luxury and it’s not often that the two are married and very few around the world do as good a job as Feynan in Jordan ... No matter how you get there I can promise that after a few days you’ll never want to leave"
“The rooms and facilities are wonderfully lit by candlelight and lamps and eating the delicious local fruits and vegetables under the desert sky blazing with stars is not soon forgotten.”
"Getting there is half the fun though and many guests elect to hike a strenuous 16-kilometer trail through the reserve to Feynan. It’s not for everyone and guides are strongly recommended, but speaking from experience I can tell you it’s one of those things everyone should try once and is the perfect introduction to the philosophy behind Feynan itself."
Feynan Ecolodge, is a Jordan hotel offering eco-friendly credentials, healthy dining and local excursions, in the Dana Biosphere Reserve.
"Dating to between 10,000 and 8,500 BCE, Faynan is one of the earliest of the Neolithic sites discovered in the entire Middle East, which in turn means 'it’s one of the earliest in the whole world' "
“In a candle-lit environment, visitors feast on flat breads baked by Bedouins, vegetarian stews, hibiscus juices, falafel, hummus and sticky knafeh for dessert.”
