I did some work in this village years ago and fell in love. I came back to set up tourism businesses with the locals so we could share an amazing place with you...our guest. Um Qais is a sleepy village with deep historical roots, one of the Decapolis cities of ancient Rome is located here; the village is also known for its incredible views of the Golan Heights, the Sea of Galilee and the rolling hills of the Yarmouk Nature Reserve. The food that we offer is organic, locally harvested and unique.

Hello, I'm Muna and I work in the travel industry in a company I started in 2012 called BARAKA. We specialise in sustainable tourism development and community based tourism mainly in Jordan. The company's focus has primarily been on consultancy work; however, we have recently opened our own projects in Um Qais and Pella. Consultancy documents are not always implemented, and so our first project in Um Qais was a way for me to administer my sustainable and community based tourism work fully. The B&Bs in Um Qais and Pella are the hubs of the two projects and I really want to share it.
Beit Al Baraka has been stylishly fitted with furniture that has been created by the surrounding community, and this design reflects a modern rustic look of the Northern Jordanian culture. With spectacular views of the surrounding landmarks, Um Qais is my village getaway.
Beit Al Fannan is a special place that is ideal for those wishing to hear the sound of birds rather than the sound of cars. Located in Pella and once the artistic getaway of renowned artist Ammar Khammash, Beit Al Fannan is a unique and elegant building that is decorated with the artwork of the very talented Jordanian artist.
