Saudi Arabia is set to redefine luxury ecotourism with the unveiling of Zardun, an exclusive sanctuary resort developed in the sustainable NEOM region in the northwest of the Kingdom. The NEOM Board of Directors announced this ambitious project as part of the region's ongoing development, focusing on harmoniously blending luxury with nature.
Located along the pristine waters of the Gulf of Aqaba, Zardun stands as a testament to luxury and environmental harmony. The resort is designed to offer a unique experience with four ultra-luxury signature buildings, crafted to integrate seamlessly into the stunning natural landscape. This initiative represents a significant advancement in luxury ecotourism, aiming to provide an unparalleled premium experience for discerning guests.
Spanning a vast four square kilometers, Zardun is envisioned as a restored haven, rich with native flora and fauna. The resort stretches from mountainous terrains to the seashore, offering visitors a chance to immerse themselves in nature right from their arrival at the innovative experience center, which features a 360-degree observation deck.
The resort's design includes three distinct and luxurious boutique hotels, encompassing a total of 100 rooms and suites. Each hotel is themed differently, allowing guests to enjoy a variety of experiences, from breathtaking valley views to serene seascapes. These accommodations are not just about opulence; they reflect a commitment to sustainability and a vision for a restored environment.
Adventure and relaxation are at the heart of the Zardun experience. Guests can engage in activities like trekking, mountain biking, and rock climbing, or find tranquility in stargazing, meditation, and yoga. Educational programs focusing on nature protection, conservation, and re-wilding will be available, inviting guests to participate in meaningful environmental initiatives.
Zardun’s dedication to sustainability is all-encompassing. The creation of oases throughout the resort aims to support diverse habitats, aiding in the reintroduction and nurturing of native wildlife. These efforts extend to the coast, where Zardun will play a crucial role in conserving coral reefs and marine life in the Gulf of Aqaba. This initiative aligns with NEOM's ongoing commitment to environmental preservation, setting a new standard in eco-conscious luxury travel.
