Set on the shores of the Madash peninsula, these bungalows all have private terraces with hammocks – a fine way to see the sun set over the Dead Sea. The main reason to stay, though, is that it’s a short stroll to Mujib Biosphere Reserve.
The sandstone canyon is home to rare cats and ibex (goats), and wet and dry trails. Recommended for the adventurous, the Siq trail can be hiked solo in two to three hours, but you must be reasonably fit and able to swim. The chalets are sustainable, too, placing the protection of nature and local communities at its heart.
Booking info: Prices start from 76JD (£83) for one night, based on two people sharing. Prices include conservation fee, use of the beach and breakfast.
