A pioneer in naturally luxurious and ecologically sensitive hospitality, Banyan Tree’s newest all-villa resort is a desert retreat situated in the magical surroundings of AlUla’s Ashar Valley.
For thousands of years, the banyan tree has been the sacred centre of many Asian villages, a shelter for weary travellers seeking refuge and sanctuary in the company of fellow wanderers. Opening its doors in October 2022, Banyan Tree AlUla finds its space within the historical region of AlUla, a traveller’s oasis along the ancient Incense Road. This new tranquil desert sanctuary invites guests to discover an uncharted new world.
Within this enchanting space, guests can enjoy breathtaking views of the Ashar Valley from the privacy of one of 47 elegant tented villas, all lavishly decorated with authentic, handcrafted Arabian-inspired details. Each villa features high ceilings and a canopy tent that blends not only with the natural landscape but also with the very heritage of the land itself. Committed to a founding ethos of embracing the environment and empowering people, Banyan Tree AlUla advocates for sustainability, connection and wellbeing as the path to living well.
