Luckily we already had guests who did all the paperwork and enjoyed their stay in the B&B and their Jordan journey. We received their feedback and we don’t want to keep that from you.

Alexandra and Marcel from The Netherlands, visited Jordan and the B&B in September 2021. This is what they wrote after they came back home:
“Go to Jordan now! A beautiful country that you can experience now, virtually without tourists. Getting there and back is all easier than you think. In the country itself, you hardly notice the corona virus.
Every now and then a mouth cap, that’s all. Petra, Wadi Rum, Jerash, Amman, Dana – all magical, to experience it in this tranquility.
If you go now, you are not only doing yourself, but also the people in Jordan a favor: they need it badly to finally be able to earn some money from tourists again. And you give it to them too, everyone is so nice.”

We eased our reservation and cancellation terms during this post-Covid year as we realize that planning your trip is still subject to uncertainties. So we don’t ask for the deposit to confirm your booking. Off course, we understand that you are doing your very best to keep your Jordan journey going. And if you have to cancel your stay for reasons related to Covid-19, just let us know as soon as possible, and we will cancel the booking for free.

Please make your reservation to stay in the B&B in 2021 or 2022, and we look forward to welcoming you in full health!

The bed and breakfast close to Petra's Visitor Centre

Bed and breakfast Petra Fig Tree Villa is only a ten minute walk away from the ancient and enchanting rose-red city of Petra hence an ideal base to start your visit to the new Wonder of the World.

However some people will take a taxi back to the bed and breakfast after a day of hiking in Petra. And certainly I can help you with arranging this taxi ride!

Mezze breakfast in bed and breakfast Petra Fig Tree Villa

This is what Mai said on Happy Cow  about the food in Petra Fig Tree Villa.

Beautiful veg dinner and breakfast "Jolanda serves very delicious home made dinner and breakfast with egg, fruits and herbs from her own farm. Dinner started with tomato and rosemary soup, and oven dish with beautiful veg layers. Salad with Tahini matched very well with the oven dish. Dessert was also very special with her homemade fruit compote crumbles. Breakfast is again so appetising from eyes with many small dips with warm bread. I totally recommend her place! She is super friendly and easy to get along with. I liked her company during the dinner!"

Enjoy a chair massage at the bed and breakfast

Petra Archeological Park covers 264 square km and has so much to offer. For example the famous Treasury, an impressive tomb cut out of the rose red sand stone about 2000 years ago. Hence the name rose-red city. Many of our guests hike around 20 km on their (first) day to see the beauty of Petra! 

What to think of a chair massage, to relax and revive your sore muscles after this strenuous hike? And to be ready for another day of exploring Petra!

I’ve brought my special chair to give you a 15 minute refreshing and energizing massage. You are in good hands as I am a TouchPro ® practitioner.

"Jordan is an amazing country to travel. We felt safe, the people are very friendly and helpful. The country side is beautiful.We walked over 9 miles a day for 2 days around Petra and it was just astonishing. We stayed 3 nights in the lovely Fig Tree Villa in Wadi Musa. The host, Jolanda, made us feel at home, right away. Really lovely place, with a gorgeous view. We really enjoyed watching the sunset from the porch. Breakfast, lunch-to-go and dinner were healthy and yummy. Will definitely go back to the Fig Tree, can absolutely recommend!"
