The project's scope of work involves the development of resorts on more than 50 natural islands located between the cities of Umluj and Al Wajho, on the western coast of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The project includes hotels and luxury residential units, as well as all logistical infrastructure including air, land, and sea transport hubs.
The project will be developed over 28,000 square kilometers of pristine land on Saudi Arabia’s west coast and includes a vast archipelago of more than 90 pristine islands and lagoons. The destination also features mountain canyons, dormant volcanoes, desert vistas and ancient cultural and heritage sites.
The project will provide an opportunity for the whole world to experience and enjoy an eco - friendly destination scattered across a breathtaking archipelago that is home to exquisite beaches and 200 kilometers of untouched coastline. The area is characterized by its year-round temperate climate, with average summer temperatures reaching up to 31° C.
The resorts will also offer popular activities including water sports – with The Red Sea famed for being one of the world’s best dive sites. In addition to extreme sports – parachuting, trekking, and rock climbing – as well as culturally enriching visits to the Arab Heritage Museum and the Archeology Center.
Phase 1 will include an airport, marinas, residential properties, recreational facilities and up to 3,000 hotel rooms.
The masterplan preserves some 75% of the destination’s islands for conservation and designates nine islands as sites of significant ecological value.
