    Confirm your reservations !!

    Arrived Late at the camp and they didn’t have our Hotels.com reservation. Even though the place was full they cleaned up a tent that wasn’t fully built put in mattresses and made us feel very welcomed. So make sure to confirm your reservation. We were lucky Dinner was amazing breakfast was ok. The staff was great and very hospitable. Toilets are ok could be cleaner and the shower had Steaming hot water. All in all I highly recommend thIs place considering its in the middle of the desert. Wadi Rum is magical and a must-visit.

    Amazing experience

    We had a very good stay in Milkyway Ecolodge ! We were warmly welcomed by Matar and his son Lell who took us to the first created camp of Wadi Rum! As the sun was setting down, Lell brought us to different spots for nice sunset pictures and a brief history of the area and the camps. Then we came back to the camp where we were also warmly welcomed by Mitrat who is managing the camp and had already prepared a traditional tea in the fireplace ! Our great surprise was to have the camp only for us as it was a quiet week when we were there. After having taken our tent and a relaxing (with hot water) shower, we were offered a huge dinner perfectly cooked by Mitrat with traditional tasty dishes. They also proposed us to enjoy the stars of the desert with a mattress. The silence of the night was only interrupted by some camels walking around which was really nice to see them so closely. The breakfast was as good as the dinner and Mitrat was kind and really helpful with us. I would definitely recommend to book your stay in this camp and also enjoy the tours that they propose to live the experience to have a cup of tea and a meal with some local bedouins !

    Super lovely place to stay in Wadi Rum! The staff and communal areas were great, the room was perfectly warm in the cool evenings, and the bathroom facilities exceeded expectations. The food and the experience were awesome!

    Superb location in wonderful, comfortable Bedouin tents. The loo block was built into the cliff face and had all the amenities and had powerful and hot showers. The food produced by Mohamed and Mohamed was simply delicious and we all had it together with the other guests inside the communal Bedouin tent with candles and rugs and log fire and chimney going up the centre of the tent. We had a wonderful relaxing time in the most spectacular scenery of Wadi Rum. We went on a safari with Fahed and a camel trek to various nearby sites for a morning. We made friends and had a lot of fun. Would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay if you would like to visit Wadi Rum.

    Our second time at Milky Way. We brought 3 other people with us and all enjoyed it immensely. Could see the wear and tear on the facility over the last two years but they are making major improvements. Beautiful new family tents. Don't hesitate to visit!

    The manager and staff were extremely accommodating with our late check in. The chef had even offered to cook us something after they had closed down the kitchen and dinner service was well over. They had a great common space and bathrooms with showers and toilets. The manager took the time to pick us up from parking area and show us around the grounds even though it was late. They also accommodated our need to get back to our car early in the morning for us to drive to Petra on a tight schedule. There was a star viewing area, the sun rise was amazing, there were plenty of blankets to keep us warm, privacy, and a great little modest and delicious breakfast buffet. Couldn’t have had a better experience, everyone was so nice and genuinely friendly!
