Take a seat in our comfortable and stylish sunken seating at Elephant Rock! Sit back and enjoy the view of AlUla's most famous geological formation, Elephant Rock, as she looms large over you.

Elephant Rock

This iconic geological marvel is a wonder to see in the daylight or at nighttime. As the sun sets, colours dance in the sky and this epic elephant turns a magnificent shade of red. Capture the perfect picture or stay for late-night stargazing.
