The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman has launched a new project which is both environmentally friendly and set to host a haven of luxury resorts.
The project, entitled ‘Coral Bloom’, is being led by the Red Sea Development project. In terms of design, the focus point of the project is primarily around biodiversity which preserves its natural environment, mangroves and wildlife in the region, designed by renowned British architects Foster + Partners.
Discussing the launch, John Pagano, chief executive of Red Sea Development, believes visitors will be in awe of what they will arrive to.
“We expect guests to be awed by what they see when they first arrive at The Red Sea Project, enjoying a truly immersive barefoot luxury experience,” he said. “The Coral Bloom designs take inspiration from the incredible flora and fauna found uniquely in Saudi Arabia.”
Overall, the islands will consist of 50 resorts, 8,000 hotel rooms and 1,300 residential properties laid out across an of 22 islands.
The entire project is all set to be completed by 2030 while supporting the usage of sustainable infrastructure using renewable energy, water conservation methods, and efficient use of resources. It also includes 11 hotels, lagoons and beaches along the dolphin-shaped island, all built-in consideration as the world is shifting to natural trends even more, due to the existing global health crisis.
By the end of 2022, guests are expected to be welcomed with its first official opening as the first four hotels officially open, while offering a host of luxury experiences, marinas, golf courses, and entertainment activities through efficient use of resources.
