The villas will be installed at Sheybarah Island Resort.

The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project, said it has signed up Mammoet, a global leader in engineered heavy lifting and transport, for work at Sheybarah Island Resort, a key part of The Red Sea Project.

As per the deal, Mammoet has been commissioned to install 73 prefabricated villas – specially manufactured offsite by Grankraft Industries in Sharjah, a metal production specialist, at the hyper-luxury resort on Sheybarah island.

These villas will be picked up by Mammoet from Grankraft’s yards and delivered at the Red Sea island site. Later they will be installed onto their foundations: on the beach and over water, it stated.

The resort, which has been designed by Dubai-based architectural firm Killa Design, comprises uniquely shaped overwater and beach villas, F&B buildings and other facilities.

Sheybarah Resort is a LEEDPlatinum off-grid, zero energy, zero water development that promotes sustainable design in every aspect of its environment, to ultimately create a hospitality benchmark for regenerative developments.

Meanwhile, TRSDC has confirmed that three new hotel management agreements have been signed with international hotel brands to operate resorts in the first phase of development at The Red Sea Project.

 The deals, inked at the Future Hospitality Summit in Riyadh last month, involve big names such as Ritz Carlton Reserve and Miraval hotels – the first to operate in the Middle East – and Rosewood, a global luxury hospitality company.

Ritz Carlton Reserve is situated at the destination’s idyllic Ummahat Islands, whilst Miraval and Rosewood are located on Shura Island, the main hub for the resort.
