Overview

This unique resort and international summit centre concept was designed by pioneering French architect Jean Nouvel and will be sculpted from sandstone, inside mountains situated among AlUla's dramatic desert scenery. Set deep within the stunning scenery of Sharaan Nature Reserve, the Sharaan Resort and International Summit Centre is a bold hotel and conferencing concept inspired by AlUla’s ancient Nabataean architecture and dramatic desertscape. A world first, this stunning project will be sculpted from an immense rock formation. A circular courtyard will be carved out of sandstone, while inside a series of rooms will be arranged around a central 80-metre high lift shaft pointing to the sky. Each suite will open to a balcony with stunning desert views. The project will also draw on emission-free power and new standards in sustainability.
