The centrepiece of Neom's Gidori development will be a cantilevered beachfront complex

Saudi Arabia’s $500 billion giga-city Neom has revealed plans for Gidori, a residential golf community on the coastal hills of the Gulf of Aqaba.

Gidori will house luxury hospitality, premium residences and a range of sports and leisure amenities designed using the area’s natural landscape.

The centrepiece will be a cantilevered beachfront complex. The tower will house 190 sea-view apartments, retail stores and garden spaces.

The project will have an 18-hole championship golf course that will crisscross the inland through low hills and rocky landscapes.

Placed along the golf course will be 200 private villas and homes.

Additionally, Gidori will have an 80-room boutique hotel with multiple swimming pools and a theatre.

The new project is part of Neom’s tourism-driven portfolio. Recent launches have included developments at Leyja, Epicon, Siranna, Utamo, Norlana, Aquellum, Zardun, Xaynor and Elanan.

Neom has made 45 applications for names and logos to the US patent and trademark office since June 2021, including 33 in 2023.  

The mega-project’s main development is a 170 km-long concept city called The Line, but it is not clear if it will be as long as planned.
