With its central location, mountain landscape and natural surroundings, Anantara Trojena will welcome guests in 2026, aiming to redefine luxury living in the region. Like the rest of NEOM, the property will be powered by renewable energy while sustainably protecting the region's cultural and environmental heritage.

Dining options at the resort will include two speciality restaurants, an all-day dining restaurant with a show kitchen, a café, high tea lounge and a rooftop majlis café.

Additional on-site facilities include an Anantara Spa, with separate male and female wet areas and treatment rooms, plus multiple hammams, a fitness centre, a spectacular infinity pool with mountain and lake views, a stargazing deck, an outdoor cinema, kids’ and teens’ clubs, and a sports and activity pavilion.

Located in the Water Village, part of the Valley Cluster of Trojena, the resort will be accessible via helicopter, with its own on-site helipad, while meeting and events spaces will attract corporate and special events.


Trojena is set to welcome visitors and residents in late 2026 and will host the Asian Winter Games in 2029. The destination is accessible via NEOM International Airport, where travellers can connect with key regional and international cities. 

In the future it will also be linked to NEOM's high-speed rail network.
