The quaint and untouched Red Sea will undoubtedly be turning touristy and the leading luxury destination owing to the ambitious Red Sea masterplan development in Saudi Arabia. The pristine natural islands and lagoons across 124 miles of coastline along the western coast will be home to the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. Located on Shura Island, the new resort will feature approximately 149 rooms and suites, six restaurants, a yacht marina, leisure and lifestyle facilities, retail offerings, an 18-hole golf course, and more.
“As we continue to expand Four Season’s presence in the region, our new project in the Red Sea will be one of our first resorts in the Kingdom, blending the best of beachside travel with the natural and cultural wonders of Saudi Arabia,” says Bart Carnahan, President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management. “We are incredibly proud to be part of this impressive and visionary development by RSG and look forward to inviting guests to explore our new Resort within such a beautiful and storied destination.”
British architecture studio Foster + Partners will also design the property, the brain behind the Ummahat AlShaykh Hotel 12 in Ummahat AlShaykh island. What will set the Four Seasons resort apart from equally enchanting options? The same aspect considered a Four Seasons forte sets it apart- a full-service spa with a hammam, three outdoor pools, and two separate beaches for families and adults. The property will also include an on-site marine discovery center, meeting and event space, and tennis courts. The lavish resort can be reached through its own dedicated airport, currently under development.
“This new destination provides the next generation of travelers with an incredible opportunity to discover what Saudi Arabia has to offer, building on its historic and cultural significance, while highlighting the exceptional natural beauty of the region,” added John Pagano, Group CEO of Red Sea Global. “We are thrilled to have Four Seasons as a partner on this project, bringing their world-renowned service expertise to the beautiful Red Sea.”
