The Red Sea Unveils Nujuma: A Ritz Carlton Reserve Embarking on a New Era of Regenerative Luxury


The Red Sea Project, a beacon of luxury and sustainability, has just announced the opening of its third resort, Nujuma, a Ritz Carlton Reserve. Inspired by the Arabic word "Nujum," meaning "stars," Nujuma offers an unparalleled escape to one of the world's most secluded and protected archipelagos. This pristine destination promises to set a new standard for opulence, design, and ecological harmony.


Architectural Brilliance by Foster and Partners


Nujuma’s design is a testament to the ingenuity of Foster and Partners, a renowned architectural firm known for their innovative and sustainable designs. The resort's architecture draws inspiration from natural shells, creating a harmonious blend with the surrounding environment. The elegant interiors are crafted with natural materials, featuring calming sea and sand tones and geometric patterns that reflect the region’s rich cultural heritage.

"Designed by Foster and Partners, Nujuma’s sweeping shell-inspired architecture and elegant interiors are crafted with natural materials imbued with calming sea and sand tones and geometric patterns reminiscent of the region’s design motifs,” stated The Red Sea in a recent press release.


A Celebration of Local Craftsmanship


Every corner of Nujuma is imbued with local artistry and craftsmanship. The resort’s canopied interiors are adorned with Arabic artifacts, traditional ceramics, woven Saudi patterned rugs, and intricate wall hangings. This meticulous attention to cultural detail creates an ambiance that is both luxurious and authentic, offering guests an immersive cultural experience.

"Lush landscaping of indigenous plants elegantly frames the pathways between the pavilioned spaces and villas,” the statement continued. This integration of native flora not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also supports local biodiversity, aligning with Nujuma's commitment to regenerative tourism.


A Sanctuary of Biodiversity


Nujuma’s location is not just a visual paradise but also a sanctuary for diverse ecosystems. The island's shores are fringed by rich mangroves, known to be among the most productive ecosystems in the world. Within this lush habitat, visitors can spot a variety of sea birds, marine invertebrates, and the elusive halavi guitarfish. This rich biodiversity offers a unique and enriching experience for eco-conscious travelers.


Exquisite Accommodations: Overwater and Beach Villas


Accessible by chartered boat or seaplane, Nujuma features 63 luxurious overwater and beach villas. These accommodations, ranging from one to three bedrooms, offer spacious living areas and private pools overlooking the serene sea. Each villa is designed to provide an unparalleled sense of privacy and exclusivity, with telescopes positioned on each deck for guests to marvel at the limitless starry night skies.


The overwater villas, perched above the cerulean-blue waters, are connected by an elevated ring walkway, offering panoramic views and direct access to the sea. Meanwhile, the beach villas, nestled on undisturbed soft white sands, are flooded with natural light and refreshing sea breezes, creating a secluded retreat.


Personalized Luxury: Dedicated Personal Hosts


At Nujuma, personalized service is paramount. Each villa enjoys the services of a dedicated personal host, ensuring that every detail of the guest’s stay is meticulously taken care of. These hosts provide personalized guidance and arrange bespoke experiences, ensuring that every moment at Nujuma is as seamless and enriching as possible.


A Destination for All: Catering to Diverse Travelers


Nujuma is thoughtfully designed to cater to a wide range of affluent travelers. Whether you’re a honeymooner seeking romance, an adventure seeker craving excitement, a wellness enthusiast looking for rejuvenation, or a family in search of a luxurious retreat, Nujuma offers something for everyone. The resort's versatile offerings and tailored experiences make it a premier destination for discerning travelers from around the globe.


Leading the Charge in Regenerative Tourism


The Red Sea Project is at the forefront of the global transition towards regenerative tourism, aiming to positively impact the environment, society, and the economy. This innovative approach goes beyond sustainability, focusing on restoring and enhancing the natural environment.


The resort operates entirely off-grid, powered by sunlight day and night, thanks to 760,000 solar panels and one of the world’s largest battery storage facilities with a capacity of 1,300 MWh. Furthermore, more than 5 million plants, shrubs, and trees have been cultivated to beautify the destination and create thriving habitats. Additionally, the project is committed to planting 50 million mangrove seedlings nationally by 2030, significantly contributing to the preservation and expansion of these vital ecosystems.


Conclusion: Nujuma – A Celestial Haven


Nujuma, a Ritz Carlton Reserve at The Red Sea, is more than just a luxury resort; it represents a new era of sustainable opulence. Its architectural brilliance, cultural richness, and commitment to regenerative tourism set it apart as a true gem in the world of luxury travel. For those seeking an uncharted journey to a secluded paradise, Nujuma offers an experience that is both transformative and timeless.
