Luxury Holidays At Banyan Tree AlUla

Nestled in the mysterious desert setting of one of the world’s most exciting emerging tourism destinations, Banyan Tree AlUla Resort is a multi-sensory experience. The resort’s philosophy centres around three fundamental concepts; ‘in-villa, in-valley and en-voyage’, celebrating complete immersion in the property and its spectacular surroundings. Elegant tented accommodation that blends seamlessly into the desert sands enables guests to fully embrace the ‘in-villa’ concept. Sumptuous furnishings with authentic Arabian touches complement alfresco spaces connecting guests to the local environment, where breathtaking views take centre stage and facilities including private pools and firepits encourage guests to soak up the tranquillity outdoors. The ‘in-valley’ concept tempts visitors out of their villas into the hotel and ancient Ashar Valley beyond; two exceptional eateries and memorable Destination Dining in AlUla’s extraordinary surroundings promise innovative world cuisine, and the resort’s wellness offering reaches far beyond the spa, with open-air treatments providing new levels of immersive relaxation. Energizing experiences await as part of the ‘en-voyage’ offering, with excursions expertly curated to explore the best of this ancient area, known as the world’s largest open-air museum, with its remarkable Nabataean remains and rich heritage.

Hotel Experiences

A range of carefully curated experiences are designed to introduce guests to the magic of the AlUla landscape. An excursion to Saudi Arabia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hegra, is a must – the second largest site of the Nabataean civilisation outside of Petra in Jordan, its well-preserved remains sit ethereally among the desert sands. Taking to the skies on a thrilling vintage plane or helicopter adventure allows guests to appreciate the area’s iconic sites from the air, and to fully comprehend the sheer scale of this magical space. Horse-riding excursions traverse breathtaking Arabian landscapes and star-gazing experiences allow an insight into Bedouin life and the age-old techniques tribes use to navigate the desert terrain at night.
