Saudi Arabia’s luxury tourism destination, The Red Sea has announced the opening of its third resort, Nujuma, A Ritz Carlton Reserve.

Perched above the cerulean-blue sea and connected by an elevated ring walkway, the overwater villas offer panoramic views and direct access to the sea. Nestled on undisturbed soft white sand, the beach villas are secluded retreats flooded with natural light and the sea’s refreshing breeze. Each villa enjoys the services of a dedicated personal host, who will take care of every detail and guide guests through all the enriching experiences this destination has to offer.

“No other destination offers desert landscapes connected directly to picturesque marine environments at the scale and beauty of The Red Sea,” said John Pagano, Group CEO at Red Sea Global, the developer of The Red Sea. “Guests arriving at Nujuma will be among the first to explore this one-of-a-kind, diverse and culturally rich region.”

“Our guests can start the day with a sunrise hike through mountains and canyons, followed by lunch on a pristine, secluded island and an afternoon of relaxing spa treatments. In the evening, they can unwind under our magnificent dark skies and hear stories of ancient pilgrims and traders who once walked these shores, guided by these same stars,” Pagano said.

Designed by Foster and Partners, Nujuma’s sweeping shell-inspired architecture and elegant interiors are crafted with natural materials imbued with calming sea and sand tones, and geometric patterns reminiscent of the region’s design motifs. Arabic artifacts, traditional ceramics, woven Saudi patterned rugs and intricate wall hangings celebrating local craftmanship flow through the canopied interiors.

The island’s shores are fringed by rich mangroves that support a lush habitat of sea birds, marine invertebrates and halavi guitarfish. Beyond the turquoise waters, guests can discover the beauty of the coastal mainland through guided trails across majestic desert dunes.

The Red Sea is designed to cater to affluent travellers, from honeymooners and adventure seekers to wellness enthusiasts, families, and more. The destination is at the forefront of the global transition towards regenerative tourism – going beyond sustainability to have a regenerative impact on the environment, society, and the economy.

“The Red Sea is a truly extraordinary destination, made all the more remarkable because we have chosen to develop and operate it with regeneration at the core. This means by visiting The Red Sea, our guests are playing an active role in protecting and enhancing the destination when they choose us,” added Pagano.

Last year, The Red Sea welcomed its first guests with Six Senses Southern Dunes, The Red Sea, followed by The St Regis Red Sea Resort.

The Red Sea International Airport (RSI) has been receiving a regular schedule of domestic flights since September 2023 and international flights began in April 2024, marking the start of a new twice-weekly route between The Red Sea and Dubai.

Upon full completion in 2030, the destination will comprise 50 resorts, offering up to 8,000 hotel rooms and more than 1,000 residential properties across 22 islands and six inland sites. The destination will also include luxury marinas, golf courses, entertainment, F&B, and leisure facilities.
