Mexican luxury brand AZULIK to open Eco-Luxury resort in Saudi Arabia’s AlUla

AZULIK, a Mexican luxury hospitality brand, in partnership with Royal Commission of AlUla, has announced plans to open a new Eco-Luxury resort in Saudi Arabia’s AlUla.

The AZULIK AlUla resort will be housed within the Nabatean Horizon District of AlUla’s Journey Through Time (JTT) masterplan. The property, scheduled to open in 2027, will be tucked into the canyons near the AlMutadil Equestrian Village development and Wadi AlFann, an ancient valley that will soon be home to large-scale artworks in the landscape.

The resort will feature 76 luxury villas across six categories, all-day dining venues, a VIP club, a spa, Welcome Lounges and a SFER IK museum. Aiming to be in harmony with the surrounding natural sandstone cliffs, the resort’s undulating exteriors will utilise natural materials and fibres woven into several layers.

As a Tribe, we feel honoured to bring AZULIK’s vision to AlUla. It is with gratitude and profound respect that we embark a journey into AlUla’s vibrant heritage and culture. Rooted in its unique natural landscape, we begin a project that is both close to our heart and our brand values.

As an eco-focussed resort, AZULIK AlUla will protect and incorporate nearby ancient rock art inscriptions, and utilise a natural system of existing waterways to feed irrigation and safeguard against floods.

AZULIK AlUla is centered on the concept of sustainability and connection with the natural and human heritage surrounding this magnificent property. Along with its proximity to the AlMutadil Equestrian Village and Wadi AlFann, both under development, this resort is one of several assets contributing to AlUla’s growth as a leading destination.

said John Northen, Vice President of Hotels and Resorts, Royal Commission of AlUla.

No private vehicle traffic will be allowed on-site. Instead, an all-electric mobility system will be provided, along with horse and camel routes, besides hiking trails for guests.

Once fully operational, AZULIK AlUla Resort is expected to create more than 300 new jobs. Along with local materials and contractors sought for construction, most operational supplies will be sourced from AlUla and Saudi Arabia to further boost local and national economic growth.
