The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind one of the world’s most ambitious tourism projects, has shared details of an activity of read sea project of Saudi Arabia to identify the location of its over water assets around four key islands at the destination.
The activity will inform the positioning of over water assets, including villas, restaurants and hotel arrival points for two hyper-luxury hotels and one luxury hotel on Sheybarah South and Ummahat Al Shaykh islands. It marked the location of the assets in accordance with the destination’s approved Master Plan and took around three weeks to conduct.
“The marking of locations for our over water assets is another milestone reached for the project, and is indicative of the progress being made at the site,” said John Pagano, CEO, The Red Sea Development Company.
“This activity was an essential step in the identification of suitable locations which will allow our hotels and other assets to coexist in harmony with their surroundings while providing our visitors with an immersive experience and stunning views.”
The primary purpose of the activity was to coordinate the setting out of the overwater assets aimed to minimize the impact on the existing environment and particularly invaluable coral reefs. It also ensured the optimum spatial planning arrangement, locating assets in a way that works efficiently as a luxury resort development, and also considering the challenging constructability constraints.
