Saudi Arabia’s NEOM has inked a deal with hospitality brand Marriot to open three new hotels at the new luxury island Sindalah – the first resort to open within the futuristic $500 billion mega business and tourism project. Sindalah – which will be approximately 840,000 square meters - aims to rival top global tourist destinations such as the likes of Monaco and Athens with its year-long luxury offerings. With its first visitors expected in early 2024, the new luxury tourist destination will be home to a vibrant, world-class marina and yacht club, located just 17 hours sail from the Mediterranean and featuring an 86-berth marina for yachts.
“NEOM is one of the most highly-anticipated developments in the world and we look forward to working with its team to develop these three exciting properties,” Jerome Briet, chief development officer, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International.
The second project, also projected to open in 2024, is expected to be an all-suite property offering 115 one, two and three-bedroom luxury suites, and will be situated in the heart of the retail and marina district of Sindalah. Both Luxury Collection properties are set to showcase multiple culinary experiences and leisure facilities. Also expected to open in 2024, the Autograph Collection property in Sindalah will include 66 rooms and suites, including one- and two-bedroom villas, multiple dining options, a kids club, and a spa.
