Dana Guesthouse

Dana Guesthouse is a simple but charming property, perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the stunning Dana Nature Reserve in Jordan. The hotel is locally run and provides a convenient base for the night before starting treks into the nature reserve.

Dana, Jordan
Dana Guesthouse
  • Dana Guesthouse has one of the most breathtaking views in Jordan, over Wadi Dana

  • The traditional Arabic food here is simple but delicious

  • While Dana Guesthouse has plenty of local charm, but it is very basic

  • This is the ideal place from which to begin a hike around the Dana Nature Reserve

The Dana Nature Reserve is one of Jordan's hidden gems, and a great place to get more off the beaten track versus the more popular sites such as Petra and Wadi Rum. As the area is protected, the accommodation choices are limited, but while Dana Guesthouse is basic, the hotel offers incredible views, and warm Arabic hospitality.   

There are 24 rooms, which are simply furnished. The entry level rooms have a shared bathroom, but there are 15 Deluxe Rooms which have their own bathrooms. Each room has a wonderful terrace overlooking a 1,000-meter drop to the basin of the Wadi Dana. The sunsets across the far side of the Wadi make this an exceptionally beautiful place to be in the evenings. Dining is fairly simple, but hearty, and the public areas of the property have a welcoming, intimate atmosphere.

Dana Guesthouse is eco-friendly, and the money from the hotel goes towards the local community, and most of the staff are from the surrounding area.
