The Red Sea

Overview

The Red Sea is pioneering a brand-new luxury regenerative tourism destination along the west coast of Saudi Arabia. One of the world’s last true hidden treasures, The Red Sea is surrounded by the world's fourth-largest barrier reef system and spans over 28,000-square-kilometers with an archipelago of more than 90 untouched islands, pristine beaches, dormant volcanos, sweeping desert dunes, mountain canyons and historical cultural sites. Our landscapes are as varied as they are breathtaking. The Red Sea is a crossroad of land and sea with a rich cultural backdrop full of fascinating history. Offering world-leading experiences alongside natural simplicity, and underpinned by a smart framework, guests are guaranteed enriching escapes with a boutique twist. The Red Sea will be ready to welcome the first guests in 2023. By 2030 it will be home to 50 hotels, 8,000 rooms, up to 1,000 residential properties and its own international airport.

Master Plan
At The Red Sea, we are forging a new model of development, with responsibility at its core. In partnership with Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo and Buro Happold, our masterplan for the destination has been developed to not only protect the environment but enrich it for future generations to enjoy. 
The plan was informed by a series of wide-ranging environmental studies, and the largest marine spatial planning simulation ever undertaken, in partnership with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, to assess the environmental impact of the development and operation of the destination. 
As a result of these findings, less than one percent of the total site area is being developed, with 75 percent of the destination’s islands being preserved for conservation. We also aim to achieve a 30 percent net positive conservation benefit by 2040, achieved by enhancing key habitats that help biodiversity to flourish.
