AMMAN — The Cela Rural Lodge in Ma’tan Heritage Village on Thursday was officially opened in Tafileh, under the patronage of Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Lina Annab, a USAID statement said. Developed with support from USAID, the lodge offers a new tourism experience that showcases rural life and the area’s culture, nature and history.

The USAID Building Economic Sustainability through Tourism project worked with the Baqea Tourism Cooperative Society to revamp the lodge, supporting interior design, operations planning, local community engagement and capacity building to create a unique and quality tourism experience. The project also installed a solar power system and trained staff in food handling and housekeeping.
