ENVI Lodges unveils a stunning location of ENVI Laguna Bay, a luxury ecolodge on Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast. The resort offers beach pods with private pools and a focus on sustainability and well-being in King Abdullah Economic City.
The green project, known as ENVI Laguna Bay, is being developed by Al Rasim Hotels & Resorts and will be situated in a prime beachfront location in King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) amidst a rich mangrove ecosystem. The eco-lodge will serve as a beacon of luxury and sustainability.
The Designer of the Ecolodge
The world-famous architectural firm Gensler has meticulously designed each of the 40 beach pods, complete with private pools.
Facilities of the Ecolodge
The facilities are designed with a focus on family and well-being experiences. They include a kids’ club, an activities center, and a wellness hub with a yoga deck.
A Special Ceremony
To celebrate the revelation of the project’s location, local mango trees were planted on the site during a special ceremony. Senior representatives of Al Rasim Hotels & Resorts, ENVI Lodges, and KAEC attended this ceremony.
The Eco-friendly Coastal Resort
Aiad Mushaikh, CEO of Al Rasim Hotels & Resorts, commented on the project, saying that the KAEC will host the first eco-friendly coastal resort in the distinguished and captivating Laguna area.
This collaboration introduces the ENVI Lodges brand to the thriving tourism market in Saudi Arabia. Al Rasim continues to invest in unique hospitality projects that allow the discovery of the natural beauty of the Red Sea coastline.
The Regeneration of Mangroves
Mangroves thrive in this area of KAEC, and the ecolodge is committed to their regeneration as part of its holistic approach to luxury tourism. The calm and crystalline waters will also be protected, offering guests non-motorized sports to ensure the tranquility of nature remains undisturbed.
The Sustainability Pillars
With ENVI’s sustainability pillars committed to the environment, community, and culture, the project strongly aligns with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 and its roadmap for tourism sector growth.
Vision for the Lodge
Chris Nader, Co-Founder of ENVI Lodges, commented on the location:
“The lodge is strategically located, just one hour by road from Jeddah and connected to the city’s airport via the high-speed train. We envision the lodge as a preferred eco-conscious beach destination, not only for Jeddah residents but for domestic and international travelers looking for a unique barefoot luxury escape near Saudi Arabia’s second-largest city.”.
