There are 16 fully equipped 1940's style rooms, air conditioned with private bathrooms and terraces, overlooking Azraq Village and sand flats of the Azraq Basin.
The rooms can accommodate up to 60 people at full capacity. All the staff members are from local Bedouin, Chechen, and Druze communities and the kitchen and restaurant are under the management of a local family, who provide home-cooked Chechen food.

Opened in April 2008, Mujib now has a ‘chalet village’ on the shores of the Madash peninsula, providing 15 double rooms with some of the best Dead Sea views along the coast. Each chalet has an uninterrupted sea view, shaded sun terrace, air conditioning and privet toilets. The chalets are only a short distance from the Mujib Reserve Visitor Center and the entrance to the stunning Mujib canyon and river hike. They are therefore an ideal place from which to explore the unique landscape of the Reserve or enjoy the medicinal properties of the Dead Sea. The chalets are open all year round.
Perched on the edge of the precipitous cliffs of Wadi Dana, this beautifully styled building merges elements of village vernacular architecture with more modern elements, creating a structure with a definable Arabic character, unlike any other in Jordan, offering breath-taking views of the Reserve.
It consists of only 9 comfortable rooms, but with a few extra beds, it can be made to house up to 23 people. Considering that the Guesthouse was originally meant to house researchers, all the rooms share external toilets and showers, except for one suite which has a private bathroom, adding character and authenticity to the entire experience. Most rooms also come with private terraces that offer spectacular views of the surrounding wadi and mountains.
The Guesthouse is also equipped with facilities for courses and conferences, making a perfect location for retreats and workshops.
The Guesthouse is open all year round.
Feynan Ecolodge was constructed in 2005 by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature and is the first of its kind in Jordan. In September 2009, EcoHotels took over the management and operation of the lodge, offering travellers an unparalleled opportunity to experience Jordan’s wilderness, meet its native people and explore its ancient history, with minimal impact on the environment.
Each of the 26 guestrooms at Feynan is unique, designed around a series of internal courtyards reminiscent of the ancient caravanserai or inns on the silk routes through the desert. Whichever distinctive room you choose, you will enjoy ambient lighting from candles tucked in alcoves around the room and solar-heated showers in your private en-suite bathroom. Solar generated electricity is provided in the bathrooms for your convenience.
Depending on your preference and budget, choose from three room categories all with ensuite bathroom facilities: economy, standard or deluxe. The Lodge has rooms that sleep 2-4 people; comfortably accommodating groups, families, couples and independent travellers.
With the capacity of accommodating up to 60 people, Feynan Ecolodge is also an ideal venue for hosting meetings, conferences or corporate retreats. Remotely located in the rugged beauty of Dana Biosphere Reserve, Feynan is a unique experience that stands apart from the standard hotel venue.
Feynan Ecolodge is open all year round.
