Six Senses unveils plans for a show-stopping resort in AlUla
It’s the Kingdom’s third Six Senses property…
A hospitality pioneering in the wellness, sustainability and ultra-luxury space, Six Senses has announced plans to make roots in the historic region of AlUla. Slated to welcome guests from 2027, Six Senses AlUla will provide a gateway to a living museum, set over a 1.2 million square metre landscape that has long been considered one of the world’s most significant trade routes.
A collection of 100 guest villas and 25 residences promise to blend seamlessly into the surrounding natural oasis, which is framed by AlUla’s unmistakable red sandstone cliffs.
On property, guests can look forward to wellness activities at the Six Senses Spa such as sunrise yoga and meditation, singing bowl ceremonies, and Arabian-inspired treatments. Culinary experiences will take place against the backdrop of the natural rocks and caves, where the interiors feature thousand-year-old inscriptions and rock drawings.
The local landscape will also allow visitors the unique opportunity to stroll freely among the rich historic landscape, discovering history etched on tomb walls around every corner. It’s set to be an immersion into the locale unlike any other in AlUla.

Before Six Senses AlUla, the renowned wellness brand will open its debut resort in the Kingdom this November, Six Senses Southern Dunes. The first resort to open at The Red Sea, Six Senses Southern Dunes unrolls against the backdrop of the sandy landscapes of the Hijaz Mountains.
At the heart of the resort you’ll find the Oasis, designed to look like a desert flower. Surrounding the Oasis is a complex of 36 guest rooms and suites. A further 40 pool villas are dotted in strategic locations across the dunes, and all are given a majestic Bedouin touch with tones, textures and soft furnishings.
A second Six Senses will open at another Red Sea Development, with Six Senses Amaala forming part of Triple Bay, one of the key developments within the Amaala masterplan. Six Senses Amaala will open in the first phase of the development next year.
The collection of 64 rooms, six suites, 30 villas and 25 branded residences have been designed to look like a traditional coastal village, using the local topography and materials to inspire the aesthetic.
