The new St. Regis Hotels and Resorts, situated on Ummahat Island in Saudi Arabia, is the first private island from which couples will be able to discover the Red Sea. Ummahat Island is fringed by abundant wildlife, marine ecosystems and natural marvels. Guests will be able to snorkel amongst preserved coral reefs, obtain PADI certifications, and embark on scuba diving expeditions to nearby wrecks and discovery sites, including the Blue Hole, a large natural marine cavern adjacent to the resort. The island’s crystal-clear, vivid blue water can also be enjoyed by an array of water sports, including stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, windsurfing and kayaking. Excursions to the mainland via a short trip by chartered boat will offer guests the opportunity to explore dormant volcanoes, heritage sites and sweeping desert dunes.

The St. Regis Red Sea Resort will feature a collection of 90 spacious beachfront and overwater villas, offering elegant one-to-four-bedroom accommodation, each with a private pool and sundeck. In addition, the resort will feature five restaurants offering distinctive culinary concepts that will serve produce sourced from local farms and fishermen, two outdoor pools, a high-tech fitness centre, a signature spa and a children’s club.
