Call of the Desert

Banyan Tree launches its first property in Saudi Arabia with the arrival of the stunning AlUla desert camp.

If you’re looking for a Lawrence of Arabia experience with more than a few creature comforts, look no further than the new AlUla desert resort. Nestled in the ‘living museum’ of the AlUla Valley, the new all-villa tented resort by Banyan Tree has been inspired by the nomadic nature of Nabataean architecture while the fundamental principles of the resort are designed around three concepts that allow guests to immerse themselves in the resort and the destination.

‘In-villa’ provides guests with made-to-measure offerings brought to life by the talented cast of Banyan Tree hosts; ‘In-valley’ takes guests into the essence of AlUla through exclusive outdoor treatments, nomadic chef’s tables, active adventures, and private events staged in spectacular settings; while ‘En-voyage’ brings guests through privileged immersions crafted with local talents, continuously unlocking new facets of AlUla’s rich legacy. Bespoke wellbeing and adventure excursions show a glimpse of the ancient landscapes of AlUla and the lives of the people who call it home.
