As the weather cools down and you look for outdoor excursions, Saudi Arabia’s AlUla is the perfect escape from reality. Tucked away in the magical dunes of AlUla, is the newly opened Banyan Tree resort. Inspired by the serene Ashar Valley that surrounds it, the all-villa resort invites guests to fully immerse themselves in the tranquil and mystical desert of AUla, following a three-concept philosophy of “in-villa, in-valley and en-voyage.”
