Saudi Arabia’s mega-city Neom has announced plans for another wellness resort on the Gulf of Aqaba. 

The new site, Elanan, will be a wellness resort with architecture that uses “ultra-modern design techniques to form intricate sculptures that merge with the surrounding natural beauty,” Neom said on its website.

The website shows images of a futuristic-looking town with a gold-coloured tall building called the Observation Tower. 

Neom has made 45 applications for names and logos to the US patent and trademark office since June 2021, including 33 in 2023.  

Its main development is a 170 km-long concept city called The Line, but it is not clear if it will be as long as planned.

Referring to the scheme’s 140 separate sections, a Gulf construction analyst said: “The Line at Neom is focused now on the construction of the first three or four modules rather than going along the whole length.”
