Chadi Farhat, SLS Brand COO & Head of Middle East & Asia Pacific states, “We are happy to announce SLS Red
Sea in collaboration with John Pagano and his team at The Red Sea Development Company. We are excited to
be working with architect Piero Lissoni again to deliver our signature SLS experience at this stunning property.
We truly believe that once open, the property will be a highly sought-after destination for global travelers and
locals alike with its exclusive spa, lounge and culinary concepts.”
John Pagano, Group CEO, The Red Sea Development Company, “We are pleased to partner with Ennismore
& Accor for the launch of these three prestigious brands, the Fairmont, Raffles and SLS. The Red Sea Project
aims to deliver a unique barefoot luxury experience to our guests, and the name Accor has become
synonymous with luxury the world over. We are proud to have these prestigious brands at the development
and look forward to working together to set a new global benchmark in regenerative luxury tourism. This is
truly a milestone moment for the brands, for TRSDC and for the Kingdom.

The property’s opening and involvement in this exceptional new development is a testament to the SLS Hotels
& Residences brand’s long-standing experience in delivering unforgettable, experiential and timeless
The Red Sea Development Company has an uncompromising commitment to protect and enhance the
natural, historical and cultural environments that will make this destination unique. Leading the global
transition towards regenerative tourism, the project is going beyond sustainability to have a regenerative
impact on not only the environment, but also on society and the economy too. 22 islands will be developed,
leaving 75 percent of the islands untouched and only 1 percent of the entire destination will be developed.
Nine islands will be designated as special conservation zones to protect the species that live and thrive there.
Part of The Red Sea Project’s regenerative approach will be achieved by exploring new technologies, such as
3D coral printing and coral farming processes to boost coral populations. Additionally, the project is
investigating suitable carbon sequestration techniques to help reduce the overall carbon footprint, such as
marine algae farms, expansion of seagrass and mangrove habitats and mechanical trees, as well as
sustainable drinking water production technology.
Architectural design for the property is led by London based Foster + Partners who designed the “Coral
Bloom” concept for the resort, which will be operated by 11 international hotel brands including SLS.
Shurayrah Island forms the hub island of The Red Sea Project and is inspired by the island’s natural state,
with each of its hotels designed to give the impression that they have washed up on the beaches and nestled
among the dunes like driftwood. The resorts on Shurayrah will be created using lightweight materials with a
low thermal mass and manufactured offsite, meaning more energy efficient construction and less impact on
the environment. Interior Design is being handled by Milan and New York based Lissoni + Partners.
This news comes on the heels of the recent opening of the first SLS property in the Middle East, SLS Dubai
Hotel & Residences.
SLS is the home of an extraordinary experience coupled with a playful ambiance. Culinary artistry, theatrical
interiors, subversive design touches and unexpected indulgences are at the heart of every SLS property.
Collaborations with leading developers, architects, designers and chefs allow SLS to continue anticipating,
innovating and shaping the future of luxury lifestyle living. With seven properties in Beverly Hills, Miami,
Bahamas, Cancun, and Dubai, SLS is set to open two additional properties in Puerto Madero, Argentina and
Scottsdale by 2023. Learn more at
