His Royal Highness Mohammed bin Salman, Crown Prince, Prime Minister and Chairman of Neom, the developer of a mega futuristic city in Saudi Arabia, has announced the launch of Sindalah, the first luxury island destination within its key development and a vital project supporting Saudi Arabia’s national tourism strategy.
Coming up on a 840,000 sq m area on the Red Sea, Sindalah is one among a group of islands that will be developed within NEOM, each as per its unique vision and design.
Adding to NEOM’s growing tourism offerings, it will reshape the luxury international yachting calendar offering a new season for visitors and guests to enjoy.
The mega project will boast a 86-berth marina, an ideal destination for accommodating luxury vessels, while offshore buoys will house superyachts, said the Saudi developer.
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, glamorous yacht club, and 38 unique culinary offerings will provide an incomparable experience in the Red Sea, it stated.
Speaking at the launch, Mohammed bin Salman said: "This is another significant moment for Neom and a major step in the kingdom realizing its tourism ambitions under Vision 2030. Sindalah will be Neom's first luxury island and yacht club destination in the Red Sea, providing a scenic gateway to the Red Sea that will become the region’s most exciting and attractive tourism location."
"It will be a destination where travelers can experience the true beauty of NEOM and Saudi Arabia, above and below the water, making Sindalah the future of luxury travel," he stated.
With its incredible array of amenities, state-of-the-art marine facilities, strategic location and exceptional natural landscapes, Sindalah is expected to become one of the most alluring islands in the Red Sea, he added.
According to Neom, it is one of the most important projects supporting Saudi Arabia’s national tourism strategy. The key development will help create 3,500 jobs for the tourism sector and hospitality and leisure services, it stated.
A main gateway to the Red Sea offering bespoke nautical experiences, Sindalah is expected to start welcoming guests to enjoy its exquisite facilities and exclusive offerings from early 2024.
Building on its ability to design new tourism opportunities from the ground up, Neom said it 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.
Sindalah is also expected to become a popular golfing destination by offering enthusiasts the opportunity to experience a world-class 6,474-yard par 70 course. With its 18 tees, the Sindalah golf course will deliver two unique nine-hole experiences.
This launch affirms the accelerated pace in the development of NEOM towards achieving the ambitious vision of HRH Crown Prince, with the development of several flagship projects such as The Line, Trojena, a global mountain tourism destination that will be the Arabian Gulf’s first outdoor skiing retreat; and Oxagon - its reimagined manufacturing and innovation city.
All NEOM projects are aligned to redefine the way humanity lives and works in harmony with nature, it added.
