The Habitas group is on a mission to improve human connections and experiences by redefining traditional luxury hotels. In November 2021, they opened their newest accommodation, this time in Saudi Arabia. This serene retreat is located in the untouched oasis of the Ashar Valley, where time seems to stand still, and the elements welcome you with open arms. Habitas AlUla is not only a wonderful stay, but also a place where you are emotionally and intellectually stimulated.
You can already find several Habitas hotels in Latin-America, Africa, and the Middle East. Each and every one is connected with extraordinary surroundings and centers on creating a global community. It is not for nothing that they call their hotels ‘homes’, because a sense of connection is an indispensable aspect of their concept. The company wants to make a positive impact on the local communities through education, employment and nurturing a sustainable micro-economy. Thanks to their technology-focused approach and innovative model, Habitas always succeeds in opening beautiful hotels on special locations. Their newest stay in Saudi Arabia was preceded by their hotels in Namibia and Bacalar. The expanding portfolio makes us dream of the most special places where luxury and human-oriented ethics converge.
Guests will notice that there is no escaping the exceptional atmosphere.
There are no less than 96 rooms in Habitas AlUla, divided among three branches: Celestial Villas, Alcove Villas and Canyon Villas. All lodgings, as well as the common areas, are constructed out of organic materials that were sourced in an ethical manner. Because of this reason, the hotel effortlessly blends with the beautiful environment. Moreover, the company always ensures that the designs do not harm the nearby nature, hence that they are built in a modular way. The result is a whole of organic spaces where guests can make meaningful memories. Next to the private accommodations, people can entertain themselves on the yoga deck, the wellness, the fitness centres, the restaurant, and the swimming pool. Therefore, it is no surprise that yoga and meditation are a considerable part of the working of Habitas AlUla.
