The resort also features Nofa Spa & Health Club, two outdoor swimming pools, including a separate swimming pool for female guests.

Earlier operated as a members-only resort, the hotel is now publicly bookable exclusively via Radisson’s website

Radisson Hotel Middle East & Africa area senior vice president Tim Cordon said: “We have received numerous requests from individual guests wanting to experience the beauty of this Safari jewel in the Saudi desert and we are excited that the hotel is now publicly bookable and accessible to everyone.

“The international travel ban in Saudi Arabia has also been a driving force for the local demand with many searching for a peaceful sanctuary to escape to, while feeling completely free and safeguarded from the contraction and spread of Covid-19.”
