Marriott International, Inc. and The Red Sea Development Company partnered to introduce the distinguished Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand to the west coast of Saudi Arabia. Planned to open in 2023, Nujuma, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, is expected to form part of the highly-anticipated Red Sea destination and offer a highly personalized experience that combines intuitive service with stunning natural beauty and indigenous design. Nujuma will be the first property from the brand in the Middle East and joins an exclusive collection of only five Ritz-Carlton Reserves worldwide.
Nujuma will be located on a set of private islands, which are part of the Red Sea’s Blue Hole cluster of islands. Designed to blend seamlessly with the environment, the resort is expected to feature 63 one to four-bedroom water and beach villas. The luxurious amenities and exceptional services include a lavish spa, swimming pools, multiple culinary venues, a retail area and a variety of other leisure and entertainment offerings including a Conservation Center. The destination is also expected to include 18 Ritz-Carlton Reserve branded residences, offering owners a one-of-a-kind living experience.
Ritz-Carlton Reserve provides a private and transformative travel experience with a focus on human connection. It brings together unique elements of the local culture, heritage and environment. Reserve properties are tucked away in handpicked corners of the world, featuring chic, relaxed and intimate settings that weave indigenous flavors with highly responsive and individualized service. Current Ritz-Carlton Reserve properties are located in Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, Puerto Rico, and Mexico.
The Red Sea Project is a regenerative tourism project that covers 28,000 square kilometers on the west coast of Saudi Arabia, of which less than one percent will be developed. The destination is expected to offer a new type of barefoot luxury experience. The development features an archipelago of more than 90 untouched natural islands, as well as dormant volcanoes, sweeping desert dunes, mountains and wadis, and more than 1,600 cultural heritage sites.
