Marriott International has confirmed that W Hotels and JW Marriott are set to develop properties in this mountainous region of Neom.
With Neom still in the global spotlight, it’s not just The Line that you need to keep up with — the mountainous region of Trojena is just as dynamic. This unique year-round mountain destination in the northwest region of Saudi Arabia is unlike any other on earth. Situated at the heart of Neom, about 50 kilometres from the Gulf of Aqaba coast, Trojena will be the Gulf’s first outdoor ski resort, staging world-class sporting events, art exhibitions, concerts and cultural festivals. Trojena will also be the host of the 2029 Asian Winter Games.
Now, in keeping with the many developments around this megaproject, Marriott International has announced that it has signed an agreement with Neom to open two luxury properties in Trojena. The agreement includes not only a JW Marriott property, but also the first W Hotel in Saudi Arabia.
W Hotel Trojena
The W Hotel in Trojena is anticipated to feature 236 guestrooms, including 47 suites, with uninterrupted views of the mountains and a freshwater lake. Design plans for the property comprise signature brand spaces including a Living Room, WET Deck, W Lounge, AWAY Spa and FIT fitness centre. The hotel is also expected to offer four dining destinations and retail space. The property will be situated within the region’s Lake Village, which aims to deliver exclusive residential, hospitality and commercial experiences directly at the water’s edge. The 2.8km long architectural lake will be a destination that is expected to feature an enchanted forest and adventures on the waterfront. The Lake Village will also be home to a range of retail and dining offerings, markets and entertainment areas.
JW Marriott Hotel Trojena
Rooted in sophistication, the JW Marriott Hotel in Trojena will be a haven for luxury travellers who seek an ultra-premium escape paired with exceptional service and well-being experiences. The property will be situated in The Bow, which is anticipated to be a futuristic water world which will combine nature with technology to make for a unique living environment.
Immersed inside the lake and surrounded by a mountainscape, the substructure will be designed to withstand the weight and pressure of the surrounding water while remaining spaces will be easily adaptable to allow for multi-season use including an atrium capable of hosting large-scale events. Plans for the hotel include 500 luxury rooms and suites, and extensive entertainment and recreational offerings such as a ballroom, meeting spaces, five dining venues, a fitness club, a kids club, swimming pools and a spa.
“With its central location, high elevation mountain landscape up to 2,600 metres, and natural surroundings, Trojena redefines the understanding of ultra-luxury hospitality and mountain tourism,” said Philip Gullett, Executive Director of Trojena. “We are delighted to have two of Marriott International’s iconic brands at the forefront of luxury travel, W Hotels and JW Marriott, join us to elevate the travel experience for discerning guests.”
