Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea Project

Saudi Arabia's Red Sea Project

Clear waters, natural islands and ancient ruins along the Western coast of Saudi Arabia set the scene for the Kingdom’s promising Red Sea Project.


Known as one of the most ambitious tourism development projects in the world, all eyes turn toward the region as we continue moving toward its completion.


The Red Sea Project

His Royal Highness Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, initially announced the project in 2017. Covering 28,000 square kilometres and 200 km of coastline, the developing tourist destination includes dormant volcanoes, desert landscapes, mountains and 90 untouched islands.


As well as a rich cultural history, visitors will experience a mix of luxurious, serene and exciting outdoor activities. Above all, the project is guided by a firm commitment toward:

  • Setting a new standard in sustainable development
  • Protecting, preserving and enhancing the local environment
  • Offering access to some of Saudi Arabia’s most important cultural treasures


In February of this year, The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC) officially began their operations at the project’s Base Camp.


2022 Projections

By the year 2022, Phase One of the Red Sea Project will reach completion, including:

  • 5 Islands
  • 2 Inland Sites
  • 14 Luxury Hotels
  • 3,100 Rooms


Eight years following the completion of Phase One, the project is expected to be fully achieved by 2030.


Vision 2030

Significantly, the Red Sea Project has direct ties to Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030. Through the development of this international tourist destination, the Kingdom will be able to further diversify its economy. By its completion, the project could employ about 35,000 people while supporting the overall community and regional industries. 


Additionally, sitting at the juncture between Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, the site is within an eight-hour flight of 80 percent of the world’s population, bringing the Kingdom closer to the world.
