Amid AlUla’s extraordinary landscapes, the Banyan Tree AlUla offers a window into Saudi Arabia’s ancient past. Steeped in Arabian influence, this tranquil 5-star desert retreat sets the standard for the kingdom’s steady flood of newly emerging luxury hotels.

Nestled in the sweeping desertscape of the Ashar Valley where jagged sandstone formations jut from a sea of ochre sands, the Banyan Tree AlUla brings the Banyan Tree hotel group’s signature 5-star service to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Built to appear as though it were a very part of this expansive landscape, this eco-conscious property promises a life-affirming experience and a journey through the centuries. 

About Banyan Tree AlUla

Resembling the nomadic settlements that might have sprung up across this otherworldly landscape in centuries past, the 5-star Banyan Tree AlUla offers a meticulously thoughtful blend of high-end luxury and rustic desert living while embracing authentic Saudi culture. Here, a cluster of subtle yet elegant tented villas are alive with the essence of Arabia, their canopy exteriors sheltering earthily toned adobes which meld seamlessly into the stark desert surrounds. Along with handcrafted antiques and rich furnishings, these superb private villas include luxurious additions such as private pools and sit-out deck areas where you can revel in rolling desert vistas and gaze up at a mural of twinkling stars. Celebrating Banyan Tree’s Thai roots, the award-winning Saffron restaurant showcases flavours from across Thailand’s rich culinary tapestry, while you can also sample both Middle Eastern and planet-wide fusion dishes at Harrat. The Banyan Tree Spa, also laurelled with awards, offers a sensual experience in keeping with the serenity of the desert, blending Asian and Saudi Arabian traditions to help restore equilibrium to your body and mind. Tucked between the towering sandstone cliffs of the Ashar Valley, the Rock Pool sits in striking contrast to its surroundings, allowing guests to soak peacefully in its cooling waters while ruminating over the sweeping panoramas. A plethora of activities arranged by the resort include hiking, biking and horseback riding, following the desert’s ancient rock art trails, hot air balloon rides, and visits to some of Saudi Arabia’s spectacular UNESCO-recognised heritage sites, including the ghostly AlUla Old Town and the rock-hewn archaeological marvel that is Hegra.
