Hilton and Dan Company, a Public Investment Fund (PIF) company specialising in agritourism, ecotourism, and adventure tourism signed an agreement with Hilton to operate three resorts in Al Ahsa.

Al-Ahsa Agritourism Resort, LXR Hotels & Resorts; Al-Ahsa Eco Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton; and Al-Ahsa Adventure Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton will be located in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province and UNESCO World Heritage site, which is home to Al Ahsa Oasis - the largest date palm oasis in the world.

With lush surroundings and homegrown farms at its doorstep, the 1.8 million square metre master development aims to create a premium farm-based tourism destination in the heart of Al-Ahsa, attracting visitors looking to connect with nature and enjoy a diverse range of experiences.

Each resort will have a distinct offering, from luxury at the LXR Hotels & Resorts Agritourism Resort, wellness and wellbeing at the Curio Collection by Hilton Eco Resort, and outdoor adventure at the Curio Collection by Hilton Adventure Resort. A central activation area will also be available to guests and the public, which will include a nature garden, an amphitheatre, dining and retail options, a farmers’ market, and other multi-purpose spaces for local agricultural vendors and retailers to exhibit.

The resorts will be easily accessible via main roads, with Riyadh, Dammam, Khobar, Jubail, Bahrain, and Qatar within a one-and-a-half to three-and-a-half-hour drive away.
