Dana Guest House Oct 14, 2007
If you are looking for something off the beaten path en route to Petra, a stay at the Dana Guest House is a memorable choice. Designed by renowned Jordanian architect Ammar Khamash, the minimalist iron and stone facility is meshed into cliffs overlooking beautiful Wadi Dana in the Dana Nature Preserve. Only one of the nine rooms available here has en suite facilities, but every room has a balcony affording indescribable views (and we found the shared bathrooms to be exceptionally well maintained).
The Guest House is a run by the Royal Society for Conservation of Nature (RSCN) as part of a program to revitalize this area through sustainable tourism. While fortifying your soul with the beauty and serenity of this unique location, you will also be helping the locals return. Dana is the largest nature preserve in Jordan and home to an amazing variety of plants and animals – we enjoyed only one of many guided hiking opportunities during our brief stay in this paradise. The Guest House makes for an exceptional base camp to explore the amazing country of Jordan!
