Wellness activities amidst the natural wonders of AlUla

March 16, 2021

ALULA — AlUla, home to picturesque natural wonders, civilizations long forgotten, and a land of significant human heritage located in the north western part of the Kingdom, highlights health and wellness with a range of spiritually enticing outdoor activities this March.

The destination’s majestic atmosphere allows for an unmatched healthy experience, where participants relax and rejuvenate while enjoying group activities amongst the natural wonders of AlUla, secluded from crowds and away from distractions.

One of the top highlighted wellness activities in AlUla this winter is The Sadu Escape, located at the foot of the mountain in an isolated area of rock and sand, blending with the surrounding terrains.

Walk around, discover the mountains, feel the aura of the winds around, and unwind while sitting in a spacious tent beside Camel Rock listening to alluring musical performances.

Inside the tent, you can play a game of chess with a friend, indulge in drinks from the bar or fine finger foods, watch the starry sky from the moon beds, or warm yourself next to the bonfire amongst kindred spirits.

Another activity available for wellness seekers is the Sound Bath. Operated by Retreat and Jupiter Eclipse, it is an immersive, full-body listening experience that uses sound to induce therapeutic and restorative effects to mind and body.

During the sessions, participants will be guided by a certified sound therapist using different sound healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, drums, tuning forks, shruti box and much more, to take one from sound into the beautiful silence of AlUla.

The event happens 3 times a day on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays where you can participate in the Sunshine class (morning time), Afternoon Restorative Sound Journey (afternoon time), or Stars & Bliss Sound Journey (evening time). You can participate also in the morning and evening classes on Tuesday and Wednesdays.

In Shilal farm or AlUla Fresh Farm, you can book a meditative yoga session in the most ideal location one could wish for. Surrounded by greenery and fresh air, wear comfortable clothing, bring along your yoga mat, loosen up, and breathe in the abundance of nature.

Visitors can participate in a tribal drumming experience against the stunning natural backdrop of AlUla in Al Wadi Park.

Operated also by Retreat and Jupiter Eclipse, everyone handling their own drums, a professional facilitator will guide participants to work collectively and create a rhythmic melody.

A lovely way to release stress, this interactive drumming experience encourages unity and pumps up group energy. The experience runs every day in the evening from Tuesday to Saturday. — SG
