Dec 19, 2018
Sponsored

The magnificent Al Ula region in Saudi Arabia will host a series of extraordinary concerts and events this winter. This stunning landscape, paralleled only by the historic sites of Petra, was once the southern Nabataean capital, while Petra the northern. Surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty and magnificent monuments to human endeavour that span millennia, the Al-Ula valley is Saudi Arabia’s first UNESCO World Heritage site — and is regarded as the world’s best-preserved Heritage site. Breathtaking monuments dramatically carved out of rock will provide an unforgettable backdrop to the fantastic line-up of events and concerts.

Winter at Tantora

 

Kicking off on Dec. 20 December, Winter at Tantora will include Tantora Festival, The Wonder of Winter – A Celebration of Light and Life from Dec. 20 –27; the Hot Air Balloon Festival across two weekends, Jan. 31–Feb. 2, and  Feb. 7–9; and the spectacular Fursan Festival – the King’s Cup horse show Jan. 31–Feb. 2. Al-Ula will also play host to a series of concerts performed under the stars in a specially built arena, including global superstars such as Lang Lang (Jan. 18), Andrea Bocelli (Feb. 1) and Yanni (Feb. 8).

 Take a journey to a distant land full of history and legend, and partake in unparalleled stargazing opportunities, revealing the wonders of the universe and the constellations. Guests will experience a sense of adventure beyond comparison as they visit one of the hundred ancient tomb sites in the valley where few have ventured before.

Winter at Tantora

 

The ancient tomb sites carved into perpendicular cliffs up to four storys high feature low doorways decorated by Alexandrian masons in the first century AD, with Greek triangles, Roman pilasters, Persian flowers, Egyptian sphinxes and birds. Al-Ula is truly a crossroads of civilizations. These staggering monuments date back thousands of years, and could have been occupied by humans for hundreds of thousands of years. Carved into the rocky landscape are ancient petroglyphs of people and animals thought to be thousands of years old.

Don’t miss the wondrous event set to be the Winter at Tantora Festival.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
