With Petra reachable within 1.5 miles, The Old Village Hotel & Resort is situated overlooking the Shahara Mountains, home to the fabled UNESCO world heritage site of the rose-red city of Petra. Each room offers the usual hotel comforts, but these rooms are furnished to reflect the history and culture of the area and showcase local handicraft skills. Throughout the resort you’ll find seating areas where guests can relax and enjoy a refreshing cup of mint tea or Arabic coffee whilst enjoying the view over the terraces and catching the spectacular sunset over the mountains. The spacious restaurant set around a courtyard, offers an international a la carte with some local Jordanian features – from mansaf to knafeh. The resort is one of only a handful of hotels in Petra who have an indoor swimming pool, so you can swim year round. Finally, their sauna is the perfect place for some relaxation after a busy day exploring Petra.
