The Saudi developer Red Sea Global (RSG) will open Shebara, its own luxury resort brand, next summer at the Red Sea tourism project.

The resort, on Sheybarah Island in the Al Wajh Lagoon, will house 73 keys, including overwater and beach villas. Guests can get to the resort after a 45-minute boat ride, or 20 minutes by seaplane.

The resort’s theme, developed by Killa Design, is based on reflections of nature, with the villas made of stainless steel.  

All 38 overwater villas are now in place. So far, 25 beach villas have been installed, and substantial progress has been made on the other structures and infrastructure.

Shebara will be powered by its own solar farm, which includes more than 11,000 PV panels.

In total, RSG has constructed five solar farms to power the first phase of the tourist destination, with more than 760,000 PV panels installed.

Last month RSG announced the development of Thuwal Private Retreat, an island destination, which it will wholly own and operate.

Upon full completion in 2030, the Red Sea project will comprise 50 resorts, with up to 8,000 hotel rooms and more than 1,000 residential properties across 22 islands and six inland sites.
