In the heart of the genuine bedouin village located on a hilltop in Petra, lies our charming B&B. Here you will experience real bedouin lifestyle and culture away from souvenir shops and expensive restaurants only 3 min. walk to the entrance of Petra.
What makes our B&B so special is the location in the heart of a lively bedouin village populated by 3500 bedouins from the Albdoul tripe. 500 years ago they migrated from Yemen moving slowly up north until they found the lost city of Petra where they settled down. They shepherded their goats and made homes of the old Nabateans tombs and caves until the Jordanian authorities in 1985 builded this village for them located on a hill overlooking Petra.
This village will give you a genuine experience and are very different from the nearby Wadi Musa where all the expensive restaurants and souvenirs shops are located.
We offer free WiFi, a balcony overlooking the main street and a large outdoor area with arabic sitting from where you can relax and watch the village life.
We are here to make sure you get the most out of your visit to Petra and are more than happy to help you with anything. We have a 4 wheels drive that can take you anywhere you want. We also have 2 mules and a donkey that could take you up in the mountains and maybe you would like a sleepover under the stars on top of Jebel Hourun or inside one of the Nabatean caves.
Do you prefer privacy then of cause we will respect that too.
