some string here
Come along with us as we showcase a handful of brief staff and ambassador reports from hideaway-style places we've experienced recently. Some we loved and might invite to become members of The Hideaways Collection®, while others we've heard touted but didn't think that much of. In either case, we think you'll enjoy the insight.
. . . If you are looking for something off the beaten path en route to Petra--Jordan's awe-inspiring archaeological wonder--a stay at the Dana Guesthouse is a memorable and adventuresome choice. A stopover here will fortify your soul with the beauty and serenity of this unique location. Designed by renowned Jordanian architect Ammar Khamash, the minimalist iron and stone hostelry is enmeshed in the cliffs overlooking beautiful Wadi Dana in the Dana Nature Preserve. Only one of the nine guest rooms available here has en suite facilities, but every room has a terrace offering indescribable views (and we found the shared bathrooms to be exceptionally well maintained). Dana is the largest nature preserve in Jordan and home to an amazing variety of plants and animals. And the Guesthouse makes for an exceptional base camp from which to explore this rugged wonderland. Rates start at about $80 and include breakfast. --Vance Stephenson, Hideaways Ambassador
