80 room and suite luxury property on the Gulf of Aqaba

Capella Hotels and Resorts has confirmed its second property in Saudi Arabia, revealing its first coastal destination in the country set within NEOM’s project called Elanan.

The newly announced Capella at Elanan will be the brand’s 16th property globally. A timeline for delivery hasn’t been foreshadowed, unlike the Riyadh based project, Capella Diriyah, that is expected to launch in 2025.

Elanan is one of the destinations within the recently named “Magna” region of Saudi Arabia, which has a backdrop of desert mountains and the Gulf of Aqaba coastline.
