It is a small hotel installation, owned and managed by a Bedouin team, which is based on the criteria of sustainable eco-tourism, caring about the natural environment and the well-being of their inhabitants. Furthermore, it assures employment to the local Bedouin community.


Dr. Ahmed's Herbal Garden

Haj Ahmed Mansour, known as Dr. Ahmed, is a respected and well known traditional herbalist and healer who has a garden in Wadi Itlah. You can visit his garden and learn about the different medicinal plants as part of a day trip, or you can stay overnight in his garden which has all the necessary facilities.


El Freish Garden Retreat

Located very close to the village, yet you feel like if you were deep in the mountains. The garden is located in a secluded basin with no other gardens around and is not on the main path. The thousand-year all garden is a very good example of the unique Jabaleya gardening traditions which go back to Byzantine times.
