Kanye West Stays at $2,500 Per Night Desert Resort

Kanye West has stayed at this $2,500-per-night desert resort in Saudi Arabia, seeking inspiration for his upcoming collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign.

Kanye West is a man who works hard. After witnessing an adrenaline-packed heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou at the Battle of the Baddest boxing event in Saudi Arabia, the rapper is relying on the tranquil charm of the five-star Banyan Tree resort in Alula to stir up his next collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign.
Alula serves as the backdrop for the upcoming musical production and houses a new studio for Kanye West. It’s not entirely surprising to see the American superstar choose this remarkable and picturesque region of Saudi Arabia as his new office.

Controversy, paparazzi, and trolls surround the 46-year-old almost constantly. To let creativity flow, one needs to disconnect from the commotion and sometimes connect with nature. Alula is located in a valley surrounded by sandstone mountains, and its dramatic rock formations and natural beauty make it a visually stunning place.

It is home to Hegra, Saudi Arabia’s first UNESCO World Heritage site, boasting well-preserved tombs with intricately carved sandstone facades. In recent years, Saudi Crown Prince MBS has heavily invested in AlUla to boost its tourism sector.

The five-star Banyan Tree resort is one of several luxury hotels in Alula, a beacon for cultural events such as art exhibitions and music concerts. Kanye West will spend considerable time in one of the oldest cities on the Arabian Peninsula, complete with mobile studio equipment in his $2,500-per-night villa and luxurious amenities.

The desert retreat is believed to include a well-equipped spa, an excellent gym, a rocky pool nestled among sandstone mountains, a Bedouin tent, and a restaurant serving local and Thai cuisine by Supercar Blondie. A short flight from Riyadh or Jeddah, the Banyan Tree AlUla offers a multisensory experience amid the natural surroundings of the Ashar Valley.

Assuming Kanye West has opted for the best accommodation, the 240 sqm villa with a pool and three bedrooms is a wonderful space with a spacious living area, a ten-seat dining table, and a secluded terrace with a private pool overlooking the valley.
