Red Sea Global to launch new buy-out-only island retreat in Saudi Arabia

Thuwal Private Retreat will meet the rising demand for luxury travel in the GCC region 

Red Sea Global (RSG) has announced that Thuwal Private Retreat, an exclusive buy-out-only island destination, will welcome guests from 2024.

Located on a pristine 1.7-hectare sandy islet in a coral archipelago on the Red Sea coast, the intimate destination offers natural beauty complemented by discreet architecture and complete privacy.

The island resort will feature a large main three-bedroom villa, three one-bedroom suites, a beach club, a gym and a wellness centre.

The curated travel experience will begin as soon as guests arrive, entering via a private jetty to be greeted by the guest experience team at the welcome centre.

The creation of Thuwal Private Retreat represents a new phase for Red Sea Global, with the destination sitting separately to The Red Sea and Amaala, and as a wholly RSG-owned brand. 

Marking a milestone for the developer, there are no third-party hospitality or hotel operators involved for the first time in RSG’s history.

Red Sea Global group CEO John Pagano said: “Thuwal Private Retreat has been created to allow guests the chance to disconnect from the stresses of daily life, and instead reconnect with their closest companions. Our belief is that the sublime Red Sea coast combined with tailored luxury experiences will deliver a peerless escape for the most discerning travellers.”


In line with RSG’s commitment to people and planet, Thuwal will "combine luxury with conscious sustainability". 

The resort’s executive chef will prepare meals using locally sourced ingredients, working with food producers in the area where possible, as well as partnering with local artisans and restaurants to offer one-of-a-kind experiences.

The developer is also hiring from the local community and is actively searching for ambitious Saudis who are wish to enter the luxury sector. From butler services and culinary connoisseurs, the company is looking for individuals to work alongside international experts.
