A stay at Afra Hot Springs Chalets is ideal for guests who want to support sustainable tourism or experience a traditional Jordanian hammamat. The Chalet complex is in Wadi Afra, next to the site of Hammamat Afra (حمامات عفرا) which is also known as Afra Hot Springs.
As well as offering the opportunity to experience a traditional hammamat (at an additional cost), guests can book a guided hike in Wadi Hissa. The entrance to Wadi Hissa is just 500 metres from the Chalets.
There are 8 basic chalets and 5 larger chalets. All are detached.
The water in the chalets comes from the hot springs of Afra, and the electricity is solar powered.
Each chalet has twin beds, an en-suite, air-conditioning, and a small terraced area. Larger chalets have a small sitting area, with a table, kitchen sink and food preparation worktop.
The chalets are furnished simply to local, Jordanian standards.
The larger chalets share a thermal pool in the gardens. The water is from the hot springs.
There is a 30% discount available for international guests who want to visit the Hammamat Afra site during their stay. The current daily entry fee for non-Jordanians is 7.5 JODs per person per day. Read more about the Hammamat Afra site.
