Named Ashar Tented Resort, the development is set to be built as part of the Royal Commission of AlUla's drive to increase tourism in the AlUla desert area, which includes the Madâin Sâlih UNESCO World Heritage site.
The tourist accommodation will consist of 47 suites that will take their forms from the tents used by the nomadic Bedouin people who occupied the area.
Each suite, which will either have one, two, or three bedrooms, will be constructed with compressed-earth brick walls and topped with a tented structure.
Alongside the tented suites, the resort will also have two restaurant buildings and a spa, which will all also be made from compressed-earth bricks, also, it will include a pool within the surrounding rock formations.
The resort, which is set to open in 2021, forms part of a wider strategy to encourage international tourism in Saudi Arabia.
