Sustainable hospitality brand Our Habitas is set to open three luxury eco-tourism hotels in NEOM’s Gulf of Aqaba development.
The destination in Saudi Arabia has been developed within a natural wadi and carved between 400m-high mountains crafted over long centuries by the power of nature and water.
Starting from the Gulf of Aqaba coast and winding inland, Leyja guests will walk from the destination’s experience centre to each property while taking in the dramatic landscape – with the first approximately 2.8km from the entrance.
Designed by world-leading architects, the hotels will feature 120 rooms and suites split equally across the three properties.
Each will offer differentiated experiences while taking guests on one integrated journey of human transformation through disconnection and reconnection.
At the Home of Adventure, raw adventure, sport, and technology collide, while Oasis is a celebration of nature’s generosity. The Home of Wellness sees cutting-edge longevity combine with ancient rituals.
With 95% of Leyja preserved for nature, the properties will be housed in architectural structures that are designed to enhance the natural surroundings.
The design for the Home of Adventure traces the topography of the wadi and forms an out-of-this-world appearance, allowing guests to seamlessly embrace rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, and multi-day treks.
Situated further into the wadi, the Oasis is a property that naturally rises alongside the mountains, symbolising the balance between natural protection and strategic innovation.
Oasis will indulge guests with stargazing rituals and culinary delights, including a Chef in Residence program.
A highly reflective piece of architecture, the Home of Wellness mirrors the extraordinary landscape surrounding it.
The property will play host to global longevity experts while blending innovative wellness practices with ancient rituals.
Guests are encouraged to experience each of the three homes as part of a journey to the region, immersing themselves in a distinctive resort whilst also having the opportunity to embrace the entire valley as a collective space.
