Below the Desert Highway in the Taybet Mountains lies the old Jordanian village of Taybeh. Once a lively village near the sacred mountains of Petra, it was almost deserted as a living community during the 1960's when its inhabitants moved toward modernization.

After much debate about what to do with the old village, the former Mayor of Taybeh, Abu Firas proposed turning the village into a tourist hideaway, thereby creating a partnership with the local community. The end result was a recycled village, owned, rebuilt, and run by the locals, keeping the community and its heritage alive and spurring growth.

Taybet Zaman was restored with respect to authenticity of materials, environment, and regional style resulting in a preservation of culture, recycling of materials, and an experience its guests will forever remember.
