  2. Saudi Arabia's Red Sea project plans to build 50 luxury hotels by 2030.

    Six Senses and St Regis hotels will be the first to open, and guests will be welcomed already from the beginning of 2023. These will be followed by EDITION, Fairmont, Raffles, SLS, Grand Hyatt, Intercontinental Hotels and Resorts and Jumeirah.

    The gateway to the Red Sea Project will be Shurayrah Island, where Foster + Partners is designing a hub called Coral Bloom to accommodate the debut hotels. Part of an archipelago of 90 islands, just 22 of them will be developed, meaning 75 per cent of them will be protected. The destination also features desert dunes, mountain canyons, dormant volcanoes, and ancient cultural and heritage sites.
    By 2030, the Red Sea Project expects to host one million visitors annually (capped in line with its sustainability ambitions), creating upwards of 70,000 new jobs and contributing US$5.3 billion to the nation’s GDP once fully operational.
    The first phase of the Red Sea Project is due to be completed by the end of 2023, with a total of 16 hotels offering 3,000 hotel rooms on five islands and two inland sites. It will also include a luxury marina, an 18-hole golf course, leisure and entertainment facilities, and an international airport that will be accessible to 80 percent of the world's population in less than eight hours and is expected to serve up to one million passengers per year by 2030.

    Upon completion of the project in 2030, the site will host 50 hotels offering up to 8,000 hotel rooms and around 1,000 residential properties across 22 islands and six inland areas.

    The Red Sea project is going to operate all tourist facilities on biofuel, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

    TRSDC has chosen the German firm MAN Energy Solutions to supply it with 25 sets of biofuel generators with a total production capacity of 112 MW.

    The tourist destination will rely on renewable energy supplies, like solar plants that will include storage batteries powered by MAN gensets in six different locations. If solar energy isn’t available, there will be biofuel running on generator sets.

    “The importance of the Red Sea destination lies in its support for the economic diversification strategy pursued by Saudi Arabia by providing job opportunities, encouraging entrepreneurship, and attracting local and foreign investments in the Kingdom, as part of Vision 2030”

    LONGi, a key Chinese solar technology company, has announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply 406MW of its Hi-MO 5 bifacial modules to the SepcoIII Electric Power Construction Company towards development of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea Project.
    The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind the world's most ambitious regenerative tourism project, awarded its highest-value contract to date to a consortium led by Acwa Power to design, build, operate and transfer the project's utilities infrastructure, generating up to 650,000 MWh of CO2 free power.

    The CO2 emissions saved are the equivalent of some half a million tons annually. Included in the package is the world's largest battery storage facility of 1000MWh, which will allow the destination to remain completely off-grid and powered by renewables day and night.


    The agreement also covers the construction of three seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) plants, designed to provide clean drinking water, a solid waste management center and an innovative sewage treatment plant (STP) that is expected to allow waste to be managed in a way that enhances the environment, by creating new wetland habitats and supplementing the venue with irrigation water for landscaping.

    Our bridge to Shura Island needs just a little stitching together before we drive over it in September.

    When Elite Traveler first spoke to John Pagano, The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) CEO was hugely enthused with how the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism venture was progressing, but acknowledged the need to move beyond talking about the vision and get to a point where he and his team could begin to showcase the reality.
    The construction worker village has reached its 10,000 capacity. At the Coastal Village, which will ultimately become home to around 14,000 people, housing is nearing completion and on-site offices are open. The airport airside component is almost finished. Even the first hotel, though not open to paying guests, is up and running, accommodating visitors and staff.

    “I look at images of where we were next to where we are now and it’s incredible,” Pagano explains. “We’re going vertical.”
    Covering 10,810 square miles, an archipelago of more than 90 islands and 120 miles of coastline, all the conversation around conservation, regeneration, rewilding and research means that one can quickly forget that TRSP is ultimately a tourism project – albeit one of hitherto unimaginable scale and scope. However, that element is also now taking tangible shape, with the first nine hotel partners announced in October 2021.




    Perhaps the most significant landmark demonstrating tangible progress will be the opening of the first resorts. The imminent arrival of paying guests in 2023 seems certain to sharpen minds and further accelerate developments, but it will also necessitate a shift in tone. While much of the messaging has thus far been directed towards corporate and investment audiences, soon TRSP will need to engage directly with the global tourism space.

    “As the year progresses, the tone will change,” Pagano acknowledges. “But we’re not looking to make a huge amount of fanfare just yet. It’s about opening up our doors to those who are curious and want to explore one of the last hidden treasures of the world. I can’t wait to see those first reactions. Just like with my investor discussions, seeing really is believing.”

    The Red Sea Development Company – which oversees one of the largest tourism construction projects in the world – has selected Accenture as its partner for the Smart Destination Programme.

    Under the umbrella of the Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia, the Red Sea Development Company?is developing over 28,000 km2?of commercial, residential and leisure properties as well as pristine lands and waters along Saudi Arabia’s west coast. The goal: to turn the region into a luxury, regenerative tourism destination for domestic and international tourists.

    According to the project’s blueprint, the Red Sea region will upon completion attract one million visitors every year, and is slated to increase Saudi’s gross domestic product by close to $6 billion per year.


    Accenture has now been selected as the lead consultant to the Smart Destination Programme – the workstream that is tasked with ensuring that the Red Sea region will be able to offer visitors a “seamless digital connection and visitor experience”, explained John Pagano, Chief Executive Officer of the Red Sea Development Company.
    Accenture will support the Smart Destination Programme in the areas of enterprise architecture design and technology to integrate partners and systems in bringing the platform online, while ensuring quality and timely delivery of the complex visitor-driven program.

    Out early this morning looking at the first construction works at our spectacular Oppenheim Architecture designed Desert Rock hotel at the Red Sea Project. The hotel includes ten rooms cut and inserted into the granite rock face.
