Desert Rock Hotel

Miami based architecture studio Oppenheim Architecture has unveiled the stunning design for a new mountain resort embedded into the mountains of Saudi Arabia. The unique Desert Rock Hotel is inspired by the surrounding environment, and is fully integrated into the rocky surroundings, preserving the striking silhouette of the natural landscape. The philosophy behind the design is to build with the land, not on the land. A range of accommodation options will be available, from ground-level dwellings to crevice hotel suites midway up the mountain, as well as a number of excavated rooms within the rock mass itself, allowing guests to fully enjoy the dramatic surroundings. Amenities will include a spa and fitness center, remote dining areas in picturesque locations, and a lagoon oasis. There will also be hiking, dune buggies and other activities available. The Desert Rock resort is due to greet its first guests in 2023.
