A project landmark has been reached at Saudi Arabia’s Sharaan Resort project in AlUla, with the first rock excavations happening.  The Sharaan Resort will have 38 customised suites carved into the sandstone mountains. This will create ‘wellness facilities, family-friendly amenities, dining options, and unique panoramic views’.

 While AlUla will eventually have 5,000 hotel rooms by 2030 and 8,500 rooms by 2035, the Sharaan Resort will stand as a 'flagship project'. 

"This initial excavation is tangible evidence of our continued efforts to develop AlUla into a premier destination that harmonises luxury tourism with the preservation of unique cultural and natural heritage," - Ben Hudson, Chief Development and Construction Officer at RCU.

Sharaan Resort will be located in a valley deep inside the newly-created Sharaan Nature Reserve, especially chosen for its dramatic landscape configuration made of high clifs, rocky plateaus and spectacular sand dunes.
