RSG achieves key milestone at Shebara Resort

Whereas the first villa took nine hours to install, the last was placed in under two hours, the developer said

Construction works on Red Sea Global’s (RSG) Shebara Resort have reached a key milestone, with the installation of the final overwater villa, the developer has announced. The resort is expected to open in summer 2024 and is the first resort to be owned and operated by RSG at The Red Sea destination.

Located on Sheybarah Island in the Al Wajh Lagoon, the resort will be ‘home to iconic stainless steel orbs’. Shebara joins an impressive roster of internationally renowned hospitality brands operating at The Red Sea destination, including St. Regis and Ritz Carlton Reserve, as well as Six Senses, the developer added.

While the first overwater villa took nine hours to install, the developer perfected this process so that the last villa was in place in under two hours.

Shebara will feature a 30-to-40m reef drop-off close to the beach providing the ultimate spot for exploring ocean life. The resort will feature 73 keys, including overwater and beach villas and guests arrive either by a 45-minute boat ride from the mainland or 20 minutes by seaplane.

The southern approach reveals the first stainless steel villas on the horizon, representing a string of pearls, with a stunning reception building at the centre, forming the ‘pendant’. This incredible arrival point was carefully positioned within a natural break in the coral reef, providing a dramatic seascape whether arriving by sea or seaplane, while demonstrative of a broader commitment to sustainability, the statement explained.

As with the whole of The Red Sea, Shebara will be powered by sunlight, day and night with its own dedicated solar farm, which includes more than 11,000 PV panels. In total, RSG has constructed five solar farms to power the first phase of the destination, with more than 760,000 PV panels installed.
