Lonely Planet review
Around 7km from Jerash on the road to Ajloun, this secluded, low-key resort occupies a picturesque and tranquil location amid rolling Tuscan-like hills. Modern and comfortable rooms are surprisingly spacious, particularly the ones that come with en-suite bath tubs and private balconies. There is also an on-site restaurant that serves up country-inspired fare, especially if you want to sample the locally produced olive oil. If you don’t have your own transport, a taxi from Jerash should only cost a few dinars. If you have your own wheels, drive 5km from Jerash towards Ajloun, turn right and continue for 1km, and then right again and continue for another 2km.
