Anantara to Open Hotel in Mountain Destination in NEOM, Trojena

Minor Hotels has announced the expansion of its luxury Anantara brand in Saudi Arabia with its upcoming debut in Trojena, a year-round mountain destination in NEOM.

Situated at the heart of NEOM, 31 miles from the Gulf of Aqaba coast, and with a high elevation up to 8,530 feet, Trojena will be home to the Gulf’s first outdoor ski resort, staging sporting events, art exhibitions, concerts, and cultural festivals. Like the rest of NEOM, Trojena will be powered by renewable energy while sustainably protecting the region's rich cultural and environmental heritage.

The new 270-key Anantara resort will offer a selection of guestrooms and suites, including some with private pools, and all with lake or mountain views. Dining options will include two specialty restaurants, an all-day dining restaurant with a show kitchen, a café and high tea lounge, in addition to a rooftop majlis café.

The property will be home to a multitude of facilities. These include an Anantara Spa with separate male and female wet areas and treatment rooms plus multiple hammams, a fitness center, an infinity pool with mountain and lake views, a star gazing deck, an outdoor cinema, kids and teens clubs, and a sports and activity pavilion with a wide range of activities including padel tennis, camel and horse riding, and guided walks around the lake and mountain area. It will also be accessible via helicopter, with its own on-site helipad, while meeting and events spaces will attract corporate and special events.

The resort will be located in the Water Village, part of the Valley Cluster of Trojena. Currently under development, The Valley is an aspirational Trojena district which will be home to three developments with a 1.7-mile-long man-made fresh-water lake at its heart. The Water Village will deliver exclusive residential, hospitality, and commercial experiences and will house many retail and dining opportunities in what will be an exclusive and extravagant resort-living destination.
