Fodor's Review

On the outskirts of the town of Taybeh, 9 km (5½ miles) from Petra, this charming lodging was once a Bedouin village. Abandoned for years, it was eventually revamped into a serene hotel that has every modern amenity but has been designed to steep guests in aspects of Bedouin culture that have all but disappeared. Rooms are spacious and decorated in authentic Bedouin style with throw rugs and wall hangings, a colorful counterpoint to the natural stone walls and arrrowroot-wood

touches; the rooms open onto alleys and small courtyards. At the hotel's souk (market), you can watch handcrafted items being made, and the pool—surrounded by thatched umbrellas—and the indoor hammam are added bonuses. The central courtyard has a spice garden, and its yields are served in the hotel's excellent restaurant, where the menu mixes Eastern and Western favorites. The buffet is worth a trip in itself. The hotel has one wheelchair-accessible room.
