The Board of Directors of NEOM has recently introduced Aquellum, an advanced and luxury space located within the mountains of northwest Saudi Arabia. This latest addition to the ongoing regional development is proof of the use of cutting-edge technology, innovative architecture, and one of a kind concepts, promising guests an experience of futuristic realms through a range of various different events and happenings.
Aquellum, concealed along the Gulf of Aqaba coastline within a 450-meter-high mountain range, represents a futuristic ecosystem seamlessly integrated into its natural surroundings. Its design aims to inspire originality and imagination, pushing the boundaries of conventional construction possibilities.
To access Aquellum, visitors will take on an exciting journey starting at the world’s first floating marina. Moving on, they will board a specially designed vessel, entering Aquellum through a concealed underground canal, revealing a hidden community that is an incredible sensory journey of its own.
Inside Aquellum, visitors will experience a 100-meter-high vertical journey, revealing an impressive courtyard space that extends from the water to the sky. This subterranean digitalized community fosters vibrancy and interconnectivity by seamlessly blending hotel accommodation, apartments, retail spaces, leisure, entertainment zones, and many other exeperiences.
A boulevard winds through the courtyard, connecting various social spaces, world-class hospitality, immersive arts, events, shopping, and dining. A signature space known as ‘The Generator’ houses unique research labs for disruptors, innovators, and creative thinkers, providing a platform where the future is reimagined.
An omnidirectional internal transit system facilitates easy access to upper floors, transporting residents and visitors to their homes and hotels while ascending to rooftop gardens that offer breathtaking coastal views.
Aligned with NEOM’s commitment to conservation and innovation, Aquellum complements its coastal location and the development follows recent announcements of Leyja, Epicon, Siranna, Utamo, and Norlana, all sustainable tourism destinations located in the Gulf of Aqaba.
Aquellum, as a subterranean digitalized community of the future, remains invisible from the outside, driven by boundless imagination and designed to integrate seamlessly with nature. Its mission is to create vibrancy and interconnectivity by blending various spaces, transforming traditional experiences.
Aquellum truly shows how NEOM is committed to creating spaces that represent the future of luxury, innovation, and lifestyle by combining advanced design and construction techniques.
