AlUla, Saudi Arabia
Located amongst dramatic sandstone cliffs and the archaeological remains of Hegra, lies Habitas AlUla. Bathed in local rituals and traditions, Habitas AlUla is an oasis of calm and tranquillity in the rugged desert.
100 luxury, experiential rooms
Set in the desert canyons of Ashar Valley AlUla
Activities including desert excursions, canyon trekking, horseback riding, survival skill workshops, traditional music lectures, art walks, and Arabic Calligraphy classes
Local arts and handicrafts used throughout the property
Wellness centre with yoga sessions and spa treatments
Habitas AlUla blends seamlessly with the rugged heritage and landscape of the surrounding Hegra, a UNESCO World Heritage site that houses the remains of the ancient Nabatean civilisation. Habitas aims to bring guests closer to the surrounding heritage and environment, taking an innovative modular approach ensuring minimal ecological impact. They will be 3D printing each of the modular rooms and shipping them to AlUla themselves so that they are in charge of the entire supply change.
The Habitas model also places a focus on shared “rituals” including sunset ceremonies and a “sound sensorama”. Habitas is redefining modern luxury by focussing on bringing like-minded but diverse travellers together, prioritising human connection over the traditional concept of luxury. This includes a range of exciting and immersive activities to introduce visitors to authentic Saudi culture and history. Witness traditional Saudi music concerts and partake in lectures on Saudi society and AlUla’s history. Or head on a horse riding tour of the ancient desert sights of AlUla. The focus at Habitas is not about materials but about the creation of experiences and long-lasting memories.
