Introduction

Originally settled by members of the Nawafleh tribe in the late 1800's, the “Petra Moon Village” was built using natural resources of stone and wood. Abandoned in 1975, due to the meteoric rise of Wadi Musa and Petra, in recent years the village was lovingly restored in to a luxury boutique hotel by members of the Nawafleh family. Retaining the original architecture, design, history and atmosphere, while offering modern amenities and services, The Old Village Hotel & Resort provides visitors a truly unique insight into the lifestyle and habits of the local people. Only 2 km from the ancient Nabatean site of Petra, the resorts many terraces and seating areas are ideal to enjoy a cup of mint tea or Arabic coffee, while admiring the magical sunset and surrounding mountain views.
