The Lux Collective will open two new properties in the Middle East in 2023 and 2024.
Travellers can explore the desert of Sharjah with a duo of openings, LUX* Al Jabal, overlooking the Gulf of Oman and LUX* Al Bridi in the city of Al Dhaid, both will be in the Sharjah Emirate which holds the UNESCO badge of ‘Cultural Capital of the Arab World’.
New for early 2024, LUX* Al Jabal is a 45-key hillside retreat which will sit atop the beaches of Khorfakkan and Luluya, overseeing the Gulf of Oman. Ideal for scuba-divers and beach lovers, the resort will take architectural inspiration from the natural landscape and incorporate local designs. Its menus will use high-quality local ingredients and include the signature LUX*’s Keen On Green vegan cuisine.
It will feature one-bedroom rooms and three-bedroom suites, as well as a royal suite complete with a private pool and butler service. Guests will have private beach access, restorative LUX* ME Spa and wellness treatments, children’s activities and the opportunity to connect with the local culture and community.
LUX* Al Bridi will overlook 1,690 hectares of conservation in the Sharjah safari project in the city of Al Dhaid, the largest safari in the world outside Africa. Home to over 50,000 animals, including the native mountain gazelles, the park has a natural lake and will offer a variety of dining outlets as well as a safari camp led by knowledgeable guides.
LUX* Al Bridi will feature 35 luxury tented safari-style private retreats, a LUX* ME Spa and a discovery centre for conservation-focused initiatives. Children can learn about farm animals with interactive, educational activities at nearby Al Dhaid Farm, the city’s first petting zoo. For adults, there will be activities from dune surfing and four-wheel drive excursions to romantic stargazing.
