Crown Prince MBS’s Trojena, the futuristic ski resort in the desert, is shaping into a promising destination and at breakneck speed. After the Chedi Trojena, Neom will be welcoming not one but two luxury hotel properties from Marriott International, Inc.- Saudi Arabia’s first W Hotel and a JW Marriott property. “We are excited to work with NEOM to develop these two exciting properties in one of the most highly anticipated developments in the world,” said Chadi Hauch, regional vice president of lodging development, Middle East, Marriott International.
“W Hotels continues to redefine the luxury hospitality sector, and NEOM is an ideal fit with its vision centered around innovation, creativity, design, and exploration, while JW Marriott, one of our flagship brands, will bring its legacy of extraordinary hospitality, thoughtful design, and enriching experiences.” The W Hotel in Trojena will open with 236 guest rooms, of which 47 are opulent suites with unbridled mountain and lake views. The hotel will enthrall visitors from around the globe with four dining destinations, retail spaces, shopping markets, and entertainment areas.
The first W Hotel in Saudi Arabia will take shape in Trojena’s Lake Village. The 2.8-kilometer-long architectural lake is a mesmerizing space complete with an enchanted forest and waterfront adventures. The W Hotel will comprise signature brand spaces, including a Living Room, WET Deck, W Lounge, AWAY Spa, and FIT fitness center. The JW Marriott Hotel will be nestled in The Bow, Trojena’s futuristic water world. This property is expected to have 500 rooms and suites. An array of amenities will be found within, like a ballroom, meeting rooms, five dining options, a fitness center, a kids’ club, swimming pools, and a spa, per Designboom.
“With its central location, high elevation mountain landscape up to 2,600 meters, 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.”
“The JW Marriott will be paramount in positioning Trojena as a class-leading venue for major global conferences and exhibitions, as well as high-profile events, while W Hotels will transform the way visitors of our mountain destination enjoy entertainment, culture, and culinary experiences. Marriott International shares our vision for shaping a new frontier for the industry, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship by bringing two of its renowned hotel brands to Trojena,” said Chris Newman, executive director of NEOM Hotel Development. It looks like visitors will have a ball of a time at the Asian Winter Games in 2029 and the prestigious 2030 Winter Olympics that may be hosted at Trojena.
Joining the likes of The Chedi are two more luxury hotels that will ensure a memorable stay. Trojena will be a man-made wonder with a two-mile artificial lake, lots of artificial snow, and a vertical village within a mountain.
