Raffles announced as latest addition to Trojena


Accor’s Raffles Hotels & Resorts has unveiled plans to debut a new resort in Trojena, Neom’s mountain destination in northwestern Saudi Arabia.  

Slated to open in 2027, Raffles Trojena will showcase striking ring-shaped architecture, with 105 guestrooms arranged around its perimeter. Circular zones and meticulously landscaped gardens on the ground level will encourage exploration, while the roof, comprised of a variety of circular apertures, will allow for ample natural light. The Raffles resort will feature the hallmarks for which the brand is known, including its butler service and an emphasis on destination arts and culture. 

The result of a partnership with Neom Hotel Division, Raffles Trojena will be located in the Discover cluster, one of six distinct clusters that make up the mountain destination. Rooted in an exploration of the natural world, the Discover cluster includes the Discovery Tower, an elegant high-rise tower with an open-air museum, the Observatory, a peak panoramic viewpoint, and the Cosmic Gate, a stargazing camp and astronomical park. 

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Neom on the creation of Raffles Trojena, an architecturally significant resort that will showcase the very best in modern luxury hospitality and underscores Raffles’ commitment to growing in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” says Omer Acar, CEO of Raffles Hotels & Resorts. “Trojena is set to be a destination unlike any other, and this mountainside retreat continues the Raffles legacy of growing in the world’s most compelling locales, providing our guests with an opportunity to ignite their passions through highly personalised service and experiences.”

A place of epic natural majesty combined with immersive and extraordinary experiences – from world-class sporting events, skiing and hiking to Arabian culinary and stargazing adventures that embrace the mountain spirit.” 

“It is a credit to Trojena as a destination to have Raffles joining our portfolio of properties, offering visitors the opportunity to experience the very summit of luxury,” concludes Chris Newman, Executive Director of Neom’s Hotel Division. “With this latest resort, the boundaries of architectural excellence continue to be pushed, complementing the stunning natural beauty of the region’s vast mountain ranges.
