In a resolute stride towards the ambitious aspirations of Saudi Vision 2030, NEOM has unveiled Leyja, its latest sanctuary for ecotourism. This picturesque haven unfurls along the undulating Gulf of Aqaba coastline before weaving its way inland, carving a magnificent valley amidst the grandeur of 400-meter high mountains, sculpted over centuries by nature’s artistic touch. In alignment with NEOM’s overarching vision, a staggering 95% of Leyja’s sprawling expanse will be dedicated to the preservation of nature, seamlessly integrating innovative ecological design with construction techniques that blend harmoniously with the environment.
Once realized, Leyja is poised to curate an array of sophisticated experiences. Guests can indulge in world-class cuisine crafted by renowned chefs, rejuvenate in wellness facilities, and bask in the allure of rooftop infinity-style pools gracing the three luxury properties. For those with a zest for adventure, guided wadi walks, hiking trails, mountain biking, and exhilarating climbs await amidst the dramatic mountain landscapes that envelope the valley, like a scene from the movie Dune.
NEOM Unveils Leyja: A Sustainable Tourism Oasis in Saudi Arabia
Leyja signifies a strategic stride in Saudi Arabia’s pursuit of diversifying its destination portfolio. Three distinctive hotels, conceived by world-leading architects, constitute the hospitality facet of NEOM’s grand design. A total of 120 boutique rooms and suites, meticulously distributed across these properties, epitomize a commitment to aligning seamlessly with the surrounding environment while championing sustainability and offering unique guest experiences.
The first of these properties caters to the adventurous spirit. Its deconstructed design gracefully ascends the wadi walls, almost akin to a staircase, leaving behind minimal footprint on the natural terrain. Nestled within the cliff top and the valley’s embrace, it beckons to those craving the thrill of rock climbing and other high-octane pursuits in the vicinity. The second property, nestled at the heart of the wadi’s most extensive oasis, rises organically from the bedrock. Serving as a gateway to exploration, a sculptural staircase leads to panoramic vistas of the valley. Lastly, the third property emerges as an immersive wellness retreat, adorned with a high-tech, reflective facade that mirrors the natural beauty, allowing the wadi’s essence to flow seamlessly through its core.
