    The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project, The Red Sea Project (TRSP), has revealed design plans for its new mountain resort named Desert Rock in the beautiful wadi vistas in the west of the country.

    Created by the world-class architectural design firm, Oppenheim Architecture, Desert Rock is designed to protect and preserve the environment and will allow guests to connect with the nature and local culture of the region.

    Guests will enter the resort through a hidden valley nestled between the mountains. From there, they will find 48 villas and 12 hotel rooms within the mountain, a total of 60 keys, located amongst the vista, with architecture fully integrated into the rock to preserve its striking silhouette, a tribute to Oppenheim Architecture’s philosophy to build with the land, not on the land.

    A range of accommodation will be available, from ground level dwellings to crevice hotel suites midway up the mountain, and a select number of excavated rooms within the rock massif itself.

    To provide undisrupted views across the landscape, most roads leading into the resort will be pushed to the edge of the main wadi and hidden behind landscape mounds. This will also minimize sound and light pollution, allowing guests to fully absorb the dramatic desert landscape.

    The resort will feature state-of-the-art facilities, including a world-class spa and fitness center, remote destination dining areas as well as a feature lagoon oasis. Guests will be able to hike, use dune buggies, and star gaze as part of the site-wide activities program.

    The project also aims to maintain the ancient history of the site by hiring members of the local community to act as stewards of the land and provide educational tours for visitors about the local history of the area.

    As part of TRSDC’s commitment to regenerative tourism, Desert Rock will be designed to achieve the highest Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification level.

    The architecture has been designed to reduce energy consumption and regenerate native flora. Water retention and distribution systems will be used throughout the site, with harvested rainwater used to create a more green, flourishing Wadi.

    Alongside this, materials excavated from the site will be used to create the infrastructure. Stone will be used for interior and exterior walls and floors, while ground stone and existing sand will be used for concrete aggregate, which is the main building material for all the architecture.

    Chad Oppenheim, Founder of Oppenheim Architecture, said: “Desert Rock is one of the most dramatic desert landscapes in the world, which is why we wanted to use the architecture as a way to honor and respect it. By utilizing natural materials and integrating the resort into the rock, guests can connect physically with the destination and experience Saudi Arabia’s stunning, natural beauty.”

    Site preparation works have commenced, and construction began in July 2021. The Red Sea Project has already passed significant milestones on the destination and work is on track to welcome the first guests by the end of 2022, when the first hotels will open. Phase One, which includes 16 hotels in total, will complete by 2023.

    Upon 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, leisure facilities and an international airport.

    John Pagano, CEO of the Red Sea Development Company and the Amaala project - two prominent pillars of the tourism transformation within the Kingdom Vision 2030 - revealed that Saudi Arabia intends to raise up to 10 billion riyals (USD 2.67 billion) next year for the Amaala project, one of the largest resort tourism projects in the world.
    Amaala and the Red Sea projects, which are being built on the Red Sea coast, are part of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to diversify the Kingdom’s economy by promoting new sectors such as tourism. The two projects are also environmentally friendly and will rely on renewable sources of energy.
    Amaala and The Red Sea Project, wholly owned by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, will most likely merge into the Red Sea Group by the end of this year.

  4. This video is from April but it shows the finished complex where the workers on the project will live. There are an expected 10,000 workers who will live here whilst the Red Sea Project is being built.

    A unique luxury tourist destination with a focus on ecology and wellness, for both local and international visitors, this proposed masterplan includes 2,500 keys and can cater for 5,000 people at a time. The masterplan design creates the opportunity to introduce two marinas; one for the private boats, and one as a hub for water transportation between the islands. It is connected to the coast line via a bridge and has a strong water connectivity between the other islands; it serves as a hub for all the tourists arriving from the airport before being transported to their relevant accommodations. Electric vehicles are only allowed to access the island.
    Transforming the current sand-bank island, the new masterplan design is inspired by the forms found in nature and the site, which resembles a series of atolls forming and breaking down into a collection of paradisiac private islands, accessible via electric boats. A circle is carved within the island to allow access to more waterbodies, and to activate the centre. Each corner of the resort is designed to reflect a space of intimacy and tranquility, providing the ‘barefoot luxury’ experience. The Island Resort includes a variety of secluded villas; from golf villas, beach villas, and stargazing villas to water villas and floating villas. To create the sensation of zero interruptions within the landscape, a smooth, wavy surface was designed that integrates each villa into a single formal organic gesture, which gradually separates and reconnects with the landscape. A more affordable accommodation option is available in ‘The Village’, the busy and vibrant portion of the hotel located on the mainland which includes a strip of retail, restaurants and cafes.

    Coastal Village development is underway to house 14,000 employees and their families
    SP: At what stage is the project now in terms of infrastructure, and what is the timeline?

    AT: Despite the difficult circumstances surrounding the pandemic, we have continued to make significant progress on the ground, and there are 500 contracts worth over SAR 15 billion now awarded to local and international partners.
    The 100-hectare Landscape Nursery, the largest in Saudi Arabia, which will provide more than 15 million plants for the destination, has been operational since early 2020. There are more than 6,000 workers currently on-site, and the first 80km of new roads are near complete. The Construction Village, which is set to house 10,000 workers, is already open, and development is also progressing well at the Coastal Village, which will be home to around 14,000 people who will eventually operate the destination. This includes a 3-star management hotel, the first accommodation and our new offices.

    Last year, we marked a significant milestone in the construction of our eco-friendly Red Sea International Airport. We awarded a substantial contract to an all-Saudi JV between Nesma & Partners and Almabani for airside infrastructure works ahead of the airport opening in 2022. This includes the design and building of a Code F Runway 3,700 meters long, Code B Seaplane Runway, Parallel & Link taxiways and pavement works, Aeronautical Navigational Aids, Aerodrome Ground Lighting, Airside utilities, helipads, roads and associated buildings.

    We have an exciting year ahead at TRSDC. As we move into a post-Covid world, we are creating more partnerships, breaking new ground on-site and continuing to move forward with our plans to welcome the first guests by the end of 2022. Upon completion in 2030, there will be 50 hotels, offering up to 8,000 hotel rooms and more than 1,000 residences across 22 islands and six inland sites.
