Three spectacular Red Sea resorts are opening in May 2023
Saudi Arabia’s megaproject brings Six Senses, The St. Regis and The Ritz-Carlton to the kingdom.
The Red Sea Project is one of the most exciting megaprojects in Saudi Arabia. Epic in scale, it is an ambitious regenerative tourism project, which will be located in lush landscapes. And, you don’t have long to wait until you can check it out, as three resorts are scheduled to open by May 2023.
The Red Sea Project resorts opening next year include Six Senses Southern Dunes, The St. Regis Red Sea Resort and The Ritz-Carlton Reserve. Six Senses Southern Dunes is the only on-land resort, while The Ritz-Carlton Reserve and The. St Regis Red Sea Resort will be located on Ummahat Island.
Six Senses Southern Dunes is focused on wellness and eco-tourism. The resort includes 76 rooms, which offer desert mountain and wadi views. Spanning 10,800 square miles, at the heart of the resort is the Oasis, which is inspired by a desert flower.
Inside, guests will find Earth Lab, an ecology area showcasing the hotel’s sustainable plans. There will be a holistic anti-ageing centre, and wet facilities ranging from cold pools to a sensory wet suite. Plus, the restaurants and bars include a chef’s table, cooking school, juice bar and water bar.
Guests are in for an exclusive experience at Nujuma, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve. There are only five Ritz-Carlton Reserves around the world, and this is the first one in the kingdom. Nujuma, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is a luxury property with 63 one to four-bedroom overwater and beach villas. Plus, facilities include a spa, pools and restaurants.
The St. Regis Red Sea Resort is a high-end property with 90 villas, two signature restaurants and an outdoor pool, fitness centre, spa and kid’s club. The resort marks the brand’s introduction into the kingdom.
The Red Sea Project itself is expected to cover 28,000 kilometres of islands, beaches, deserts, mountains and even volcanos and be a leading destination for eco-luxury. The plan is to have no waste-to-landfill or single-use plastic, and be 100 per cent carbon neutral. Plus, with The Red Sea International Airport in the works, it won’t be long until you can land in the new megaproject.
