Anantara Trojena resort slated to open in 2026

Minor Hotels has unveiled the expansion of its luxury Anantara brand with Trojena, a captivating year-round mountain destination nestled in NEOM.  

Situated at the heart of NEOM, Trojena will host the Gulf’s first outdoor ski resort, staging world-class sporting events, art exhibitions, concerts and cultural festivals. With its central location, mountain landscape and natural surroundings, Trojena will redefine luxury living and travel offerings as a global sanctuary of well-being. Like the rest of NEOM, Trojena will be powered by renewable energy while sustainably protecting the region’s rich cultural and environmental heritage.
The new 270-key Anantara resort will offer a selection of guest rooms and suites with spectacular views. Dining options will include two specialty restaurants, an all-day dining restaurant with a show kitchen, a café and high tea lounge, in addition to a rooftop majlis café.
Curating personal travel experiences for discerning travelers with a wide scope of interests, the property will be home to a multitude of facilities. These include an Anantara Spa, a fitness center, infinity pool, stargazing deck, outdoor cinema, kids’ and teens’ clubs and a sports and activity pavilion. Furthermore, the hotel has its own on-site helipad.
The Anantara resort will be located in the Water Village, part of the Valley Cluster of Trojena. Currently under development, The Valley Cluster will house three projects with a 2.8 km manmade freshwater lake at its heart. The Water Village will deliver exclusive residential, hospitality and commercial experiences and will house many retail and dining opportunities.
Dillip Rajakarier, group CEO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotels, commented: “Trojena is the perfect location for Anantara to bring its heartfelt hospitality and trademark take on authentic, indigenous luxury, and we look forward to working with the team at NEOM to bring this new property to fruition within this aspirational new destination.”
“Trojena redefines the understanding of year-long ultra-luxury hospitality and mountain tourism. The Anantara will serve as a luxurious sanctuary along the edge of Trojena’s new lake, situated in a region that will offer the Gulf’s first outdoor ski resort and where world-class sporting events, art exhibitions, concerts, and cultural festivals will be staged,” said Philip Gullett, executive director and region head at Trojena.
In addition, Trojena will host the Asian Winter Games in 2029. The destination is accessible via NEOM International Airport, where travelers can connect with key regional and international cities. In the future, it will also be linked to NEOM’s high-speed rail network.
