Southern Dunes has 40 stunning villas and a 36-key hotel complex situated in a remote desert landscape, providing guests with the ultimate luxury retreat to forget about everyday life during their stay.

FACTS - Southern Dunes
Southern Dunes is designed by renowned British architects Foster + Partners
The villas are arranged in two lines to take advantage of the surrounding dunes
The design pays homage to the Nabataean heritage of the majestic desert surroundings near the Red Sea coast
The heart of the resort is the Oasis. Inspired by a desert flower, the canopy is a self-shading structure that will host vibrant activities and functions under one roof
Guests will also enjoy the two signature restaurants, an outdoor pool, fitness center, and world-class Six Senses Spa
Six Senses Southeren Dunes Design
The award-winning British architects chose to use materials appropriate for its desert location, and to reduce its dependence on artificial cooling. To achieve this, the designs avoid high thermal mass materials such as stone or concrete, which absorb and store heat, and instead use simple lightweight materials.
These building materials also easily construct together and were fabricated offsite to speed up the construction process, creating an incredibly energy efficient construction process.
Alongside the villas, the hotel resort contains reception buildings, a spa, a large pool and several high-quality restaurants.
The Red Sea Project is being created as a unique, luxury tourism destination that will embrace nature, culture and adventure, setting new standards in sustainable development and positioning Saudi Arabia on the global tourism map.Read more
