The all-villa resort in Saudi Arabia is built around three concepts to allow guests to immerse in the resort and its surroundings.

Banyan Tree AlUla has opened in Saudi Arabia’s stunning Ashar Valley with a gala dinner, private concert by music legend Mariah Carey, curated animations on the valley’s rock formations and a choreographed music routine featuring Arabian horses.

Banyan Tree said AlUla “creates the perfect home for the global brand”.

The key principles of the all-villa resort are built around three concepts to allow guests to immerse in the resort and its surroundings in a multi-sensory experience.

'In-villa' gives guests dining, wellness, and entertainment experiences.

'In-valley' takes the guests into nature with outdoor treatments, nomadic chef's tables, active adventures, and private events staged in spectacular settings.

‘En-voyage' takes guests through immersions crafted with local talents. Activities include massages in secluded caves and soothing sound baths under the stars and picnics in the sky aboard a floating hot air balloon.

Also offered are vintage plane or helicopter adventures, flying over AlUla's sites - with the possibility to extend the journey as far as the Red Sea.

"We are immensely proud to open this landmark property in such an iconic location. We wanted to create an escape where guests could truly immerse themselves in the destination while enjoying the Banyan Tree hospitality," said general manager Antony Treston.
