Ideal for lovers of barefoot luxury, Marriott International has partnered with The Red Sea Development Company to debut its Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand off the west coast of Saudi Arabia in 2023



Forming an important part of the new Red Sea destination. 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.

Set to provide guests with an idyllic experience, Nujuma will be situated on a pristine set of private islands with 63 one to four bedroom water and beach villas. Surrounded by unspoiled natural beauty and designed to blend seamlessly with the environment, the reserve will also feature a lavish spa, swimming pools, multiple culinary venues, and a variety of other leisure and entertainment offerings including a Conservation Centre.

For those wishing to prolong the adventure, the destination is also expected to include 18 Ritz-Carlton Reserve branded residences, offering owners a one-of-a-kind living experience.

The Red Sea Project is an ambitious regenerative tourism project, covering 28,000 square kilometres on the west coast of Saudi Arabia, of which less than one percent will be developed as sustainably as possible.

“We are thrilled to bring our most luxurious brand, Ritz-Carlton Reserve, and its exemplary experience to the Middle East. Perfectly situated on one of the most anticipated regenerative tourism projects in the world, the resort will blend seclusion and sophistication to provide a highly personalised luxury escape, commented Jerome Briet, Chief Development Officer, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International.
