The space
Petra is one of the most amazing places in the world
but to truly understand the heart of Petra, you need to meet it’s people.
Manal and her husband Abid, and little Sultan (Born July 11, 2019), invite you to come experience true Bedouin hospitality. Newly married, Manal and Abid have built their new home with guests in mind.
With a beautiful view of the Wadi Musa valley, the Heart of Petra Bed & Breakfast
is conveniently located minutes from main entrance to the Siq.

This is a truly hosted experience where you can expect to be warmly welcomed as a valued guest, not just accommodated. Manal and Abid are in a unique position to help you experience Petra. They speak Arabic, English, French, Spanish, and Italian. The co-hosts will help with written communication in English or by translation and, once you book, you will be able to contact Manal by telephone to arrange check-in times and coordinate hospitality and details for your visit. It is essential that you provide your arrival time in advance so Manal and Abid can be nearby to greet you and let you in.

Manal is from the Bduol tribe of Bedouin. Her family can trace their roots back to their Nabatean ancestors. Born in a cave in Petra, She learned English from visiting archaeologists. Her family still lives and works in Petra. You can find their shop and a nice shady seating area halfway up the Monastery Trail.

Abid was born in Wadi Musa and is from the Al Helalat tribe that has lived in Wadi Musa for 800 years. Abid first met Manal when they were teenagers. He recently returned from his work for the Sultan of Brunai, just in time to fall in love.

Their house is a work in progress and depending on how they have decided to arrange the furniture, the rooms may not always match the photos, however the rooms are comfortable, they have plenty of beds with lots of warm blankets to keep you comfortable at night. As they meet their guests and learn about their needs, they try to meet those needs and assure their current and future guests are safe and comfortable.

The building exterior, like most of the buildings in the area, looks a bit rough and unfinished as just about everything is made of concrete. Don't panic.. it's very nice inside.
