Saudi Arabia is currently undertaking an ultra-luxurious tourism project dubbed Sindalah Island, slated for a 2024 opening. The Sindalah project is being carried out as part of the ambitious NEOM smart city project, in line with the Kingdom’s 2030 vision.
Here’s everything we know so far about the luxurious island resort!
What is Sindalah island?
To put it simply, Sindalah Island is a luxury island resort for tourists set to be one of the first openings of the larger NEOM giga-project in the Kingdom.
This ambitious tourism undertaking is technically an island primed to be the exclusive gateway to the Red Sea. Sindalah Island is in development and will be welcoming visitors in 2024.
What facilities will Sindalah island have?
Sindalah will offer 413 ultra-premium hotel rooms in addition to 333 top-end serviced apartments. Moreover, there will also be 51 luxury retail outlets. Visitors also can expect luxury spas, 86 piers and over 50 luxury brands on the island.
Additionally, Sindalah is set to become a popular golfing destination by providing aficionados with a world-class 6,474-yard (5,920-meter) par 70 course. The Sindalah golf course will offer two nine-hole experiences thanks to its 18 tees.
The new island will be home to around 40 restaurants, including nine casual eateries and nine fine-dining spots. Additionally, there will be a yacht club and a beach club. The project also aims to become a yachting destination with 75 offshore buoys and a range of under-the-sea activities such as snorkelling, kayaking, and scuba diving.
What’s unique about Sindalah island?
The Sindalah Island, like other postcard initiatives across the Kingdom, intends to have no cars and even no roads because the goal is to have all of the vital services and amenities that people require within a five-minute walk. There will be no roads or automobiles.
Moreover, the public realm strategy will focus on encouraging social interaction, inspiring views, and incredible experiences, all while being backed by cutting-edge technology. Interestingly, the island is shaped like a seahorse, which is a perfect metaphor because the island, like that creature, is superbly unique and different.
