There are few hotels on Earth that are as interesting and magical as this one. You won't be overwhelmed by opulence, as you would at the nearby Movenpick, but it will be a stay you'll never forget. The hotel used the actual buildings and layout from an 19th century stone village. The common areas include a 'town square,' a pool overlooking the Petra valley, and a wonderful rustic restaurant, bakery, and bar. A luxurious Turkish bath is a must after hiking.
Each former house has been turned into a large hotel room, with stone arches, sitting areas, heavy furniture, and spacious baths with touches of luxury. It's a very 'green' hotel, but is fit for a royalty--King Hussein himself stayed here several times.
