Luxury hospitality group Aman signs two new resorts in Saudi Arabia

Aman Hotels and Resorts, along with its new brand Janu, has announced the signing of two new resorts in Saudi Arabia.

Aman Wadi Safar

Aman Wadi Safar will be located in the desert landscape near Riyadh and will draw inspiration from its pristine natural environment, as well as traditional Najdi design elements, to embrace the values of a community lifestyle, creating a resort setting which weaves amongst the wadis and plateaus of the site, reinforcing the connection between the property and its otherworldly desert location.

The resort, expected to open in 2026, will feature 78 guest rooms and suites with a collection of up to 34 branded residences. The property will have multiple dining venues and a Aman Spa.

This announcement marks a continuation of Aman Group’s commitment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Aman Wadi Safar and Janu Diriyah Gate build upon Aman Group’s existing pipeline of properties in Saudi Arabia and reinforce my strategic vision to offer our clients the opportunity to experience the breadth of this fascinating, and previously undiscovered country with journeys that encompass city experiences, remote desert landscapes and Unesco Heritage Sites.

said Vlad Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman Group.

Aman Group has partnered with Diriyah Company for these hotels.

We are very proud to launch Diriyah’s partnership with Aman, delivering two outstanding projects in Wadi Safar and Diriyah. Diriyah, the City of Earth, will be the world’s largest cultural and heritage destination and these projects will enhance our luxury offerings to guests who come to explore our identity. Aman Group have developed these projects by harnessing our unique setting at the heart of 300 years of Saudi history, while embracing our shared future as a city and a community. We are delighted to celebrate the beginning of our journey together.

said Jerry Inzerillo, Group CEO, Diriyah Company.

Aman Group has already announced the signing of three properties in Saudi Arabia. The group will open two Aman resorts in AlUla and a Janu property in the same place.

Additionally, Aman Group has announced Project Sama, the brand’s first luxury motor yacht being developed in partnership with Cruise Saudi, which will offer on-the-water voyages in the Red Sea, as well as in the Mediterranean.
