RIYADH, October 28, 2021

Marriott International announced it has signed an agreement with The Red Sea Development Company to develop two luxury hotels as part of the Red Sea Project in Saudi Arabia. 
The St. Regis Red Sea Resort and The Red Sea Edition are expected to enhance Marriott International’s footprint across the Kingdom where it currently has a portfolio of over 30 properties with more than 9,000 rooms across 10 brands.
Marriott International Chief Development Officer, Europe, Middle East & Africa Jerome Briet said: “We are excited to be working with The Red Sea Development Company to introduce St. Regis Hotels & Resorts and Edition to one of Saudi Arabia’s most-anticipated projects.
“These milestone signings illustrate Marriott International’s commitment to the growth of the tourism sector in the Kingdom and highlight increased demand for lifestyle and luxury accommodations and experiences.”
The St. Regis Red Sea Resort
The resort, expected to open in 2023, marks the brand’s introduction in Saudi Arabia and the growth of its portfolio in the Middle East. 
Situated on a private island, the resort is expected to feature 90 villas, two signature restaurants, an outdoor pool, fitness centre, and spa, in addition to a Children’s Club.
The Red Sea Edition
Located on the Red Sea Project's main island, Shaura, The Red Sea Edition is slated to open in 2023 with 240 guestrooms, including one-, two- and three-bedroom suites. The hotel plans to offer two signature restaurants, a destination bar, beach bar, fitness centre, a swimming pool, and spa.
The Red Sea Development Company CEO John Pagano said: “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Marriott International to our family. Securing recognised brands such as St. Regis Hotels & Resorts and Edition operating our luxury resorts is a step forward for our flagship destination. We are very much looking forward to working hand in hand with Marriott International to deliver immersive guest experiences.”
The Red Sea Project, one of the first ‘giga’ projects announced by Saudi Arabia’s government, covers 28,000 square kilometres on the west coast. With an archipelago of more than 90 natural islands, as well as dormant volcanoes, desert, mountains and cultural sites, the project is expected to deliver new levels of service excellence.-TradeArabia News Service
