Saudi Arabia’s futuristic tourism project, NEOM, has unveiled details of its first luxury island development, dubbed Sindalah, which will include an “ultra-premium” hotel and residences.
A main gateway to the Red Sea offering bespoke nautical experiences, Sindalah is expected to start welcoming guests to enjoy its facilities and exclusive offerings from early 2024.
Extending over an area of approximately 840,000 square metres, Sindalah is one of a group of islands that will be developed in NEOM.
“This is another significant moment for NEOM and a major step in the Kingdom realising its tourism ambitions under Vision 2030,” said Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, of the new project.
NEOM’s first luxury island and yacht club destination in the Red Sea will provide a scenic gateway to the Red Sea that is earmarked to become the region’s most exciting and attractive tourism location.
“It will be a destination where travellers can experience the true beauty of NEOM and Saudi Arabia, above and below the water, making Sindalah the future of luxury travel.”
Sindalah will feature a prestigious 86-berth marina, an ideal destination for accommodating luxury vessels, while offshore buoys will house superyachts. Providing one-of-a-kind nautical experiences, Sindalah will offer 413 ultra-premium hotel rooms, in addition to 333 top-end serviced apartments. A luxe beach club, yacht club, and 38 unique culinary offerings will provide an incomparable experience in the Red Sea.
Building on its ability to design new tourism opportunities from the ground up, NEOM is working with world-class leisure and hotel brands to make Sindalah an exclusive and glamorous destination in the Red Sea for the world’s yachting community. NEOM is developing the island to be a premium destination surrounded by a stunning and diverse marine environment which has one of the world’s most beautiful coral reserves.
