John Pagano, a group CEO of Red Sea Global, described the unveiling of the Thuwal Private Retreat as a ‘milestone.’ Unlike previous projects, this private retreat will be the first exclusively owned and operated by RSG, with no third-party involvement.

“This is a milestone for us personally. It is our latest revealed project since our expanded portfolio announcement last year, and it is significantly ahead in delivery. For the first time, we are creating a destination wholly owned and operated by our expert team at Red Sea Global,” said Pagano.
