The Location: Sheybarah Island
The Shebara resort is situated on Sheybarah Island in the bustling Al Wajh Lagoon. The island is notable for its breathtaking 30 to 40-meter reef drop-off near the beach, making it a prime spot for exploring marine life.
The resort is accessible via a 45-minute boat ride from the mainland or a quicker 20-minute journey by seaplane.
Red Sea Global recently unveiled the progress at Sheybarah Resort, a luxury 73-key resort designed by Dubai-based Killa Design Architects with stunning over-water villas on Sheybarah Island.
Accommodation at Shebara
Guests at Shebara will be treated to an immersive luxury experience. The resort comprises 73 keys, including overwater and beach villas. The unique positioning of the villas, particularly the overwater orbs, creates a mesmerizing visual of a string of pearls seemingly levitating above the water.
Design and Architecture
Shebara’s design is a marvel crafted by Killa Design. This architecture firm is known for creating spaces seamlessly blending with their environment. At Shebara, the stainless steel villas mirror the ocean’s colors, surface patterns, and the sky’s ever-changing hues.
Shaun Killa, Design Director and Founder of Killa Design expressed his excitement about Shebara, praising it as a prime example of innovative architecture that integrates gracefully with nature.
Facilities and Amenities
Beyond the villas, Shebara offers numerous facilities to cater to the diverse needs of its guests. There are two specialty restaurants for guests to enjoy and a spa and fitness center nestled among the island’s dunes. The resort also provides a family and adults-only pool featuring panoramic views of the stunning sunset.
Sustainability at Shebara
Red Sea Global has always prioritized sustainability in its projects. Shebara will be powered by a dedicated solar farm with over 11,000 photovoltaic (PV) panels in keeping with this commitment. This forms part of Red Sea Global’s broader initiative to make The Red Sea a fully solar-powered destination.
The Impact on Saudi Arabia’s Tourism Sector
The launch of Shebara is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of Saudi Arabia’s tourism sector. The Kingdom’s Vision 2030 initiative aims to increase the contribution of tourism to the GDP and attract more visitors annually.
Shebara and other developments at The Red Sea are set to play a crucial role in achieving these ambitious goals.
An Exciting Addition
The Shebara Resort is an exciting addition to the portfolio of Red Sea Global. It represents the company’s commitment to sustainable luxury tourism and contributes to the growth of Saudi Arabia’s tourism sector.
