Aman Heads to a New Destination: Al-ʿUla, Saudi Arabia


Aman has announced its forthcoming debut in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 2023. Following a partnership with the Royal Commission for Al-ʿUla (RCU), Aman will develop three distinct resorts of architectural excellence in Northwest Saudi Arabia, in Al-ʿUla.

This three-resort development will encompass a tented camp, a resort that’s close to Al-ʿUla’s heritage areas and a ranch-style desert resort.

About the destination: Al-ʿUla covers 8,710 square miles and includes a lush oasis valley, towering sandstone mountains and ancient cultural heritage sites dating back thousands of years to when the Lihyan and Nabataean Kingdoms reigned. The most well-known and recognized site in Al-ʿUla is Hegra, Saudi Arabia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. A 128-acre ancient city, Hegra was the principal southern city of the Nabataean Kingdom and comprises more than 100 well-preserved tombs with elaborate façades cut from the sandstone outcrops surrounding the walled urban settlement dating back to the 2nd century B.C.
