  • Hotel will have glass floors
  • 11th new project in recent months
  • ‘Incredible views of the stars’

Saudi Arabia’s main giga-project, Neom, has announced another luxury tourism project, called Treyam, a 450-metre bridge over a lagoon in the Gulf of Aqaba featuring the world’s longest infinity pool and a hotel with glass floors.  

Publicity material released on March 21 shows the infinity pool along the length of a bridge over two sides of a lagoon. The mirrored surface of Neom’s signature development, a yet-to-be-built 170 km-long horizontal city called The Line, shimmers in the distance.  

“You’re literally hovering over an entire underwater ecosystem,” chief architect Mark Foster Gage, talking about the Neom bridge resort, says in a video. “The rooms also have partially glass ceilings which means you also have the direct connection to some of the most incredible views of the stars.”

Neom’s bridge resort is the 11th such project to be announced in recent months, the others being Leyja, Epicon, Siranna, Utamo, Norlana, Aquellum, Zardun, Xaynor, Elanan and Gidori. All of them have futuristic designs to match their names. 

The Neom winter resort of Trojena said this week it will be completely finished by 2027, ahead of hosting the Asian Winter Games in 2029, making it likely to be the first of Neom’s projects to go online. 

The kingdom’s sovereign wealth fund, the Public Investment Fund, which owns most of the giga-projects, is under pressure to maintain funding while the government faces three years of budget deficits amid flagging world oil prices. 

Neom, valued at amore than $500 billion, is the most prestigious of Saudi Arabia’s giga-projects but rushing to meet deadlines. 

The government said in December that some of the projects could be delayed, citing a desire to avoid inflation and supply bottlenecks. 

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said last year the country’s economic transformation plan, known as Vision 2030, would be followed by Vision 2040
