Capella Hotels and Resorts has launched its first coastal destination in Saudi Arabia, set within NEOM at Elanan, one of Magna’s destinations, against the backdrop of stunning desert mountains and the Gulf of Aqaba coastline.

The resort will open an exclusive wellness retreat as part of the sustainable development unfolding in northwest Saudi Arabia.

Emerging from a lush oasis embracing the landscape’s ancient natural springs, the resort features 80 bespoke rooms and suites. Guests are enveloped in a world of tranquility where contemporary design meets the beauty of the environment.

Capella’s craft of hospitality is further enriched by a holistic wellness experience and innovation driven by Capella Wellness, creating a sanctuary for relaxation infused with innovative design.

Paying homage to the region, Capella at Elanan incorporates interlocking geometric shapes that evoke a modern aesthetic reminiscent of nature. From the moment visitors set foot into Elanan, they embark on a journey enveloped in the soothing embrace of nature’s beauty. Guests can explore the expansive plazas, unwind amidst the sun-kissed gardens, or marvel at the breathtaking views from the observation tower’s summit.

From healing therapies to world-class facilities, Capella is synonymous with enriching wellness, where every experience is meticulously tailored to meet guests’ needs. The resort invites guests to enjoy an extensive menu of wellness offerings based on phases of the moon.
