The Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) unveils plans for AZULIK AlUla, a captivating eco-luxury resort in a remarkable expansion of its hospitality offerings. This extraordinary development, scheduled for launch in 2027, is set within the Nabatean Horizon District of the Journey Through Time (JTT) masterplan, harmonizing with the natural environment and embodying the principles of the AlUla Sustainability Charter, Saudi Green Initiative, and Vision 2030.
Immerse yourself in the essence of nature and heritage as you discover AZULIK AlUla. Nestled amidst canyons near the AlMutadil Equestrian Village and the soon-to-be-art-adorned Wadi AlFann, this stunning resort seamlessly blends luxury with sustainability. Featuring 76 exquisite villas of various types, a spa, VIP club, welcome lounges, all-day dining, and the SFER IK museum, AZULIK AlUla captures the essence of the region’s sandstone cliffs and natural ecosystem, integrating organic designs and locally sourced materials.
AZULIK AlUla Resort aims to foster a deep connection with AlUla’s rich heritage and diverse ecology. The development embraces ancient rock art inscriptions, protects the surrounding environment, and employs a natural waterway system for irrigation and flood prevention. Guests will experience an all-electric mobility system, alongside horse and camel routes and hiking trails, encouraging a sustainable exploration of the surroundings while ensuring a car-free sanctuary.
Operated by the prestigious Mexican luxury brand, AZULIK, and designed by Roth Architecture, this resort promises an unparalleled experience. Moreover, the AZULIK AlUla Resort is committed to generating socioeconomic benefits for the local community, with over 300 new jobs to be created. By prioritizing local contractors and supplies, the resort actively contributes to the economic growth of AlUla and the wider Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
