Hotel brand Marriott International has partnered with NEOM to introduce Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy to Sindalah, an island destination in the Red Sea, off Saudi Arabia’s coast.
This collaboration aims to cater to the growing demand from families and younger travellers who seek spacious and homely facilities when away from home.
The Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy Sindalah will offer a range of premium and luxury apartment-style accommodations.
The units will include studios, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, each equipped with a separate living room, full kitchen, and in-unit washer and dryer.
Set to open this year, the property will also feature a fitness centre and swimming pool.
NEOM hotel division executive director Chris Newman said: “Marriott International has deep insights into the continuously evolving preferences of global travelers. It positions them as a perfect partner for us as we look to develop an array of accommodation options to meet the needs of Sindalah visitors.

Marriott International Middle East lodging development regional vice president Chadi Hauch said: “We continue to strengthen our collaboration with NEOM with the signing of our first Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy in the Middle East.
“We continue to see a growing desire for premium and luxury apartment-style accommodation among travelers. Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy will be a great fit for Sindalah which is anticipated to offer our guests and members exciting, year-long travel experiences on the island.”
This agreement is the fourth collaboration between NEOM and Marriott International on the luxury island.
In addition to Apartments by Marriott Bonvoy, NEOM and Marriott will develop two Luxury Collection properties and an Autograph Collection Hotel on the island.
The first Luxury Collection property will be a beach resort, offering 70 luxury rooms and suites, each with private pools.
The second Luxury Collection property will be an all-suite property located in the centre of the retail and marina district.
The Autograph Collection property will feature 66 rooms and suites with multiple dining options, and a spa.
To be developed in NEOM as the first island, Sindalah is poised to become one of the most captivating destinations in the Red Sea.
With its convenient location that is just a 17-hour sail from the Mediterranean, it will feature an 86-berth marina, making it a paradise for yachting enthusiasts.
The island will also include more than 400 ultra-premium hotel rooms, 300 top-end suites, a beach club, a glamorous yacht club, and a golf course offering two unique nine-hole experiences.
Additionally, visitors can enjoy 51 luxury retail boutiques and 38 distinctive culinary offerings.
