The Red Sea and Amaala have joined forces to create the spectacular resort.
Red Sea Global is behind one of the world’s most exciting tourism projects. Not only has the site recently welcomed guests, but it has announced more developments. Now, The Red Sea and Amaala will operate a luxury hotel brand at the site called Shebara.
Shebara is scheduled to open in the summer of 2024 and is the first resort owned and operated by Red Sea Global at The Red Sea. Located on Sheybarah Island in the Al Wajh Lagoon, guests will arrive by a 45-minute boat or 20-minute seaplane. The resort will boast 73 keys, which range from overwater and beach villas. Plus, it will feature a 30 to 40-meter reef close to the beach where guests can explore the abundant marine life.
Shebara’s facilities include an adults-only pool with terraces and sunset views, a family pool, two speciality restaurants, a spa and a fitness centre. If you’re after exclusivity, a remote island is available to book. The island includes a four-bedroom villa, three one-bedroom villas, a private beach and a barbeque area.
Shebara aims to be a sustainable project, which is powered by sunlight and home to a solar farm. Killa Design is behind the development, which draws its inspiration from nature. The stainless steel villas reflect the colours of the ocean and the colours of the sky. The overwater orbs are designed to look like a string of pearls levitating above the water.
John Pagano, Group CEO of RSG, explained: “It has long been our mission to extend our pioneering approach to regenerative tourism across a wider portfolio of brands and subsidiary companies, to create an ecosystem that will drive meaningful change in the global tourism industry. Shebara is a beacon for all that RSG stands for, showcasing the very best in Saudi hospitality.”
Shaun Killa, Design Director and Founder of Killa Design, added: “Shebara is a wonderful example of what is possible when creating beautiful yet meaningful design. It demonstrates how innovative architecture can gracefully flow into nature, with pods that reflect and refract light from the sun, the sky and the sea to naturally blend with the environment. Our priority has been to honour the natural beauty that exists here, while creating a resort that embodies modern luxury.”
The Red Sea in Saudi Arabia has already welcomed its first guests with the opening of Six Senses Southern Dunes earlier this month.
