We didn’t know what to expect as we drove along the deserted bumpy road to in a remote desert of Jordan. The Feynan Eco-lodge was our destination and all we knew about it was that it was hailed as one of the top eco lodges in the world by National Geographic Traveler. Set back in a quiet valley of Wadi Feynan this resort is a standout destination in the country.

Located in the Dana River Biosphere Reserve, The Feynan Eco Lodge is a solar powered retreat offering peace and quiet while promoting conservation and encouraging its visitors to hike and explore the surrounding area. Nick, a representative of the property told us that they have no plans on grooming the road because they don’t want people to take their cars into the reserve. They want patrons to leave their automobiles at the visitors centre and take a shuttle to Feynan. It not only is better for the surrounding environment, but also helps to employ the local people.
