Situated on the pristine Ummahat Island in the Al Wajh Lagoon, a picturesque region on Saudi Arabia’s west coast, The St. Regis Red Sea Resort can only be accessed by chartered boat or a seaplane from the newly opened Red Sea international Airport. Home to a selection of 90 plush beachfront and overwater villas, spanning from one to four bedrooms in size, the property caters for everything from romantic couple retreats to big family getaways. Each accommodation comes with a private pool, sundeck and outdoor shower. In addition to all the luxuries characteristic of the St. Regis brand, guests are also treated to a curated selection of signature rituals, the unmatched service of a dedicated Butler, and postcard-worthy sea views from sunrise to sunset.
Other onsite amenities guests can look forward to include five restaurants, each serving unique culinary concepts made using produce sourced from local farms and fishermen, two outdoor pools, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a signature spa and children’s club.
One of the resort’s biggest drawcards its its access to the world’s fourth-largest barrier reef system, where guests can discover the abundant wildlife, marine ecosystems and natural marvels of The Red Sea. Offering a full suite of water-based activities, guests of the resort can look forward to snorkelling amongst preserved coral reefs, obtaining PADI certifications, and embarking on guided scuba diving expeditions with the destination’s diving brand, Galaxea. Experienced guides will lead guests on journeys to nearby shipwrecks and exploration sites, which include the Blue Hole — a sizable natural marine cavern located next to the resort.
The azure, crystalline waters surrounding the island also provide opportunities for various water sports suitable for guests of all skill levels. These activities, such as stand-up paddleboarding, sailing, windsurfing, and kayaking, are curated under the destination’s activity brand, WAMA. Additionally, short chartered boat trips to the mainland present guests with the chance to discover dormant volcanoes, unique heritage sites, and expansive desert dunes.
The St. Regis Red Sea resort operates entirely on renewable energy, derived from solar power and harnessed through one of the world’s largest battery storage facilities situated on the mainland. The interiors of the resort adhere to the guidelines of LEED platinum certification, ensuring the creation of environmentally friendly, highly efficient, and cost-effective green structures that enhance performance from carbon footprint to indoor environmental quality.
