Marking the brand's first entry to Saudi Arabia and the region, hotel and resort brand Aman has signed a partnership deal with the Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) to develop its first Middle East properties in AlUla, Saudi Arabia.

Under the terms of the agreement, Aman will develop three distinct luxury resorts. Detailed design work on all three properties is scheduled to commence in the coming months with a development timeline that will welcome the first guests in 2023.

Commenting on the agreement, Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Mohammad bin Farhan Al Saud, minister of culture of Saudi Arabia and governor of the Royal Commission for AlUla said: "The decision by Aman to open its first resorts in the Middle East in AlUla shows the promise and progress of the vision for AlUla to become a worldwide destination for those seeking unique experiences. This partnership will be the next step in the development of the yet to be discovered masterpiece that is AlUla."

Vladislav Doronin, CEO of Aman commented: "With the addition of spectacular AlUla, this takes us to 10 properties situated near or in UNESCO heritage sites, making it a fitting location for our first destination in the Middle East."

The Aman partnership is the second major international resort development for the AlUla region and follows the planned Jean Nouvel-designed resort within the Sharaan Nature Reserve, showcasing architecture hosted by nature.

Aman was founded in 1988 with the vision of building a collection of intimate retreats with the unassuming, warm hospitality of a gracious private home. The first, Amanpuri (place of peace) in Phuket, Thailand, introduced the concept and, since then, Aman has grown to encompass 32 exquisitely serene hotels and resorts in 20 destinations across the world, with a further nine under construction.
