Aman Group expands its presence in Saudi Arabia, announces two new properties

Both the Aman Wadi Safar and Janu Diriyah luxury resorts are set to debut in 2026.

May 2, 2023: Lifestyle and hospitality brand, Aman Group, collaborated with Diriyah Company to announce two new upcoming luxury resort destinations in Saudi Arabia, Aman Wadi Safar and Janu Diriyah.

Aman Wadi Safar, set in the magnificent desert terrain outside Riyadh, will have a 78 key hotel, up to 34 Aman branded residences, and substantial amenities such as the Aman Spa and a range of dining experiences. The entire design process of the properties will be managed by frequent collaborator of the group, Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston Architects. The design structure will seek to bring out Aman’s renowned design language with the local culture, heritage, and landscape of the project’s destination. The architecture will adopt traditional Najdi design elements to reflect the community life of the place while tracing the gorgeous wadis and plateaus of the location. 

The second property, Janu Diriyah, is an additional property in the strong pipeline for Aman’s sister-brand Janu, which means ‘Soul’ in Sanskrit. As part of the Janu Wellness offering, the resort will offer 120 hotel rooms and a spa for a true connection to the surrounding nature. The resort will be located within close proximity to the UNESCO Heritage Site of At-Turaif, close to the historic city of Riyadh.

Speaking about the two new projects, Vlad Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman Group, said, “This announcement marks a continuation of Aman Group’s commitment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Aman Wadi Safar and Janu Diriyah Gate build upon Aman Group’s existing pipeline of properties in Saudi Arabia and reinforce my strategic vision to offer our clients the opportunity to experience the breadth of this fascinating, and previously undiscovered country with journeys that encompass city experiences, remote desert landscapes and UNESCO Heritage Sites.”

Aman Group has already announced three properties within AlUla, Saudi Arabia, two of which will be Aman destinations and a Janu AlUla. Additionally, Aman Group has announced Project Sama, the brand’s first luxury motor yacht being developed in partnership with Cruise Saudi, to offer on-the-water voyages in the Red Sea and the Mediterranean.
