Red Sea Global (RSG), the developer behind two of the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism projects, has confirmed its flagship destination, The Red Sea has joined the exclusive Serandipians network of luxury travel and hospitality organizations.
Set to welcome its first guests in 2023, The Red Sea is one of the first Saudi tourism destinations in the Kingdom to join Serandipians and is one of just a small select number of luxury destinations to join the network before officially opening to guests.
According to the statement, Serandipians has specifically selected The Red Sea to join its community on account of the destination’s ambition to deliver outstanding services and best-in-class accommodation in a breathtaking location along Saudi Arabia’s west coast.
“Combining the natural beauty of rolling sand dunes, untouched islands, and abundant coral reefs with first-class luxury guest experiences, The Red Sea is poised to welcome travelers to Saudi Arabia as one of the world’s few remaining unspoiled gems. Our partnership with Serandipians will help us bring regenerative tourism to the world, and demonstrate a new kind of sustainable development that aims to enrich natural capital and benefit the environment in which we operate.”
An impressive portfolio of 13 internationally renowned hotel brands have already announced they will have a presence at The Red Sea, including Ritz Carlton Reserve and Miraval hotels, the first to operate in the Middle East.
As part of Serandipians, The Red Sea will benefit from the promotion of its astounding luxury offering across a global community of the world’s leading travel agents, as well as designers and suppliers to the luxury travel industry.
“In order to join the Serandipians community and benefit from its elite network, destinations must meet strict eligibility criteria as part of a thorough review process. This includes a 5-star property rating, references from several partners and suppliers, and the provision of luxury added-value services for guests such as ease of booking and wellness offerings including spa facilities. Adventure and experiential travel are also high on the eligibility criteria list to become a Preferred Destination,” as per the statement.
Upon completion in 2030, The Red Sea 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 an international airport, luxury marinas, golf courses, entertainment, and leisure facilities.
