Famous Moon Village was built by the Nawafleh tribe in the 1800's. Old stones and techniques were used reflecting how the world here looked like in the 1st Century BC. That's when the first occupants moved in here, building unusual settlement of which parts we can see today: buildings, water channels, water tanks and olive trees.
Today, this unique hotel is managed by the members of the Nawalfleh tribe and we must say it looks like the top stay: it has 136 rooms tucked into private terraces, courtyards and little gardens with fountains. Rooms are designed to preserve the unique character of this place and are equipped with all the modern commodities: AC, WiFi, TV's, private bathrooms and authentic local furniture. You can pick a Family Suite with jacuzzi bath to make your stay even more special.
Hotel's restaurant is set around the courtyard with views over the valley. Menu includes International dishes as well as traditional Jordanian cuisine, including mansaf and knafeh. You can chill in one of two swimming pools here, or arrange activities including stargazing trips, horse riding and quad tours. Petra with all its attractions is just a short drive away. This is going to be a very unusual stay.
