banyan launches its first property in historic AlUla in Saudi Arabia, ushering in the Group’s debut in the Kingdom. AlUla attracts the attention of affluent world travelers with its fascinating blend of history, culture and entertainment, all set against a breathtaking desert backdrop dating back millions of years.

Inspired by the nomadic nature of Nabataean architecture, the all-villa and tented resort embodies Banyan Tree’s commitment to local influence. The fundamentals of the resort are designed around three concepts that allow guests to immerse themselves in the resort and the destination:

  • “In the villa” offers guests bespoke offers brought to life by Banyan Tree’s talented cast of hosts.
  • “In the valley” takes guests into the essence of AlUla through signature outdoor treatments, nomadic chef tables, active adventures and private events held in spectacular settings.
  • ‘Travelling’ takes guests through privileged immersions designed with local talent, continually opening up new facets of AlUla’s rich heritage. Tailor-made wellness and adventure tours provide insight into the ancient landscapes of AlUla and the lives of the people who inhabit it.

The resort will feature two restaurants, including Saffron, Banyan Tree’s signature Thai restaurant, offering contemporary Thai cuisine. The renowned Banyan Tree Spa welcomes guests with carefully curated wellness experiences that combine Asian traditions and local elements.
