His Royal Highness Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince, Prime Minister, Chairman of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs, and Chairman of PIF, has announced one of the most significant projects to support Saudi Arabia’s tourism sector.
Sindalah, the first luxury island destination in the PIF-owned NEOM giga-project, will feature an 86-berth marina, par-70 golf course, 413 hotel rooms and 333 serviced apartments. It is set to open to the public in early 2024.
Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s economic and social reform blueprint, and the National Tourism Strategy include a goal to attract 100 million annual tourism visits by the end of the decade. Aligned with the national strategy, PIF is supporting the country’s aims to diversify the economy and grow its tourism sector. The Fund’s giga-projects are shaping the future of travel, with Sindalah  expected to generate 3,500 jobs in tourism, hospitality and leisure.
His Royal Highness said: “This is another significant moment for NEOM and a major step in the Kingdom realizing its tourism ambitions under Vision 2030. Sindalah will be NEOM’s first luxury island and yacht club destination in the Red Sea, providing a scenic gateway to the Red Sea that will become the region’s most exciting and attractive tourism location. It will be a destination where travelers can experience the true beauty of NEOM and Saudi Arabia, above and below the water, making Sindalah the future of luxury travel.”
Maximizing its Red Sea location, with its exceptional marine life, over an area of approximately 840,000 square meters, Sindalah forms one of a group of islands to be individually designed and developed by NEOM.
