Saudi Arabia has announced plans to build a jagged tourist resort on the Red Sea as part of its Neom programme of megadevelopments. The Siranna district will be formed of hexagonal pillars inspired by the Gulf of Aqaba’s rugged terrain.

Visitors will reach it by water after journeying through natural rock formations. When they arrive, they will find a 65-room hotel and 35 homes, as well as a beach club, spas, wellness facilities, restaurants, entertainment areas and discovery trails that can be followed by foot or on horseback.

A video from Neom previews the experience, which was designed by Paolo Testolini and Nik Karalis from Australian architect Woods Bagot.

Plans were recently announced for another resort on the gulf. The Epicon district, designed by Hong Kong architect 10 Design, will contain two towers that rise above the desert like a “mirage”.
