Located in NEOM on the breathtaking Gulf of Aqaba, Leyja’s three hotels have been designed to complement the surrounding nature, operate sustainably, and provide distinct experiences.

Leyja builds on NEOM’s ongoing commitment to becoming a multi-faceted destination and supports the Kingdom’s efforts to build a strong tourism industry under Saudi Vision 2030. Aligned with NEOM’s strategy to designate the majority of its land across its destinations and cities as a nature reserve, 95% of Leyja will be preserved for nature and will combine innovative, ecological design and construction techniques to ensure the development seamlessly blends into the landscape.

Cundall provided multi-disciplinary engineering services for the immersive wellness retreat and the overall design was led by Killa Design. The hotel promotes longevity, with a high-tech, reflective façade mirroring the surrounding beauty and valley walls.

Once developed, Leyja will offer an extensive selection of refined experiences and activities, including fine dining and contemporary restaurants presented by world-renowned chefs. Wellness facilities and rooftop infinity-style pools across the three properties are also key features. Extensive guided wadi walks, and enthralling hiking trails set in the valley’s dramatic mountain landscapes await guests, with mountain biking and climbing on offer for those looking for adventure.

Key fact

This stunning natural oasis is shaped by time, history and mythology.
