Azulik AlUla Resort has been designed to blend in with the natural environment
Slated to launch in 2027, Azulik AlUla Resort will feature 76 luxury villas of six different varieties, as well as a spa, VIP club, welcome lounges, all-day dining outlets, and a museum.
With flowing designs inspired by the natural ecosystem and surrounding sandstone cliffs, the resort's undulating exteriors will be made from natural materials and fibres woven into several layers.
The Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) announced plans for the new resort as part of the Journey Through Time (JTT) masterplan, aligned with the Sustainability Charter for AlUla, Saudi Green Initiative and Vision 2030.

The property will be located in the Nabatean Horizon District of the JTT masterplan, tucked into canyons near the AlMutadil Equestrian Village development and Wadi AlFann, an ancient valley.
Azulik AlUla Resort will protect and incorporate nearby ancient rock art inscriptions, and utilise a natural system of existing waterways to feed irrigation and safeguard against floods.
Private vehicles won’t be allowed on-property; instead an all-electric mobility system will be provided, along with horse and camel routes and hiking trails.
Once open, the resort will create more than 300 jobs and most operational supplies will be sought from AlUla and wider KSA.
