Sindalah, a captivating island venture, merges world-class design with the natural environment to offer an unparalleled luxury eco-experience. With carefully curated seasons, this exclusive destination promises a vibrant ambiance from day to night. Beginning in the first quarter of 2024, Sindalah is set to attract the world’s superyacht clientele.
On June 26, 2023, NEOM, located in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, announced its partnership with BWA Yachting, a global leader in superyacht concierge and maritime agency services. BWA Yachting will establish an office at the prestigious Sindalah luxury island development. As the “Key partner superyacht agency in NEOM,” BWA Yachting will cater to the needs of the most spectacular luxury vessels worldwide, solidifying Sindalah as the Red Sea’s highly anticipated premier superyacht destination.
Emerging from the crystalline waters of the Red Sea, off the northwestern coast of Saudi Arabia, Sindalah will redefine exquisite bespoke travel. Serving as NEOM’s inaugural asset, this island will introduce the world to NEOM’s vision of the future of civilization. Sindalah, among NEOM’s 39 islands, will host a world-leading yachting ecosystem with over 5,000 berths, offering residents an idyllic luxury lifestyle.
BWA Yachting will facilitate operations at Sindalah’s international superyacht marina, delivering world-class services to the island’s esteemed clientele. The BWA Yachting team, boasting decades of industry experience, will support captains, managers, and crews with comprehensive superyacht management, including customs and clearance procedures, provisioning, logistics, shipping, concierge, and financial services. With the assistance of the BWA Yachting team, customers can expect a seamless premium experience as Sindalah becomes the new go-to destination on the yachting calendar, offering six months of winter sun each year.
Antoni Vives, Chief Urban Development and Islands Officer at NEOM, expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating, “Sindalah will redefine the luxury island experience and become the most sought-after yachting destination in the world, offering six months of winter sun and less than a day’s sail from the ports of the Mediterranean. Working with BWA Yachting will allow us to tap into their expertise and provide the unparalleled yachting ecosystem and elevated experience for which Sindalah will become synonymous. This partnership represents an important step as we invite the world to set sail for Sindalah.”
Paschalis Patsiokas, CEO at BWA Yachting, shared his enthusiasm, saying, “We are honored and excited to be invited by NEOM to establish our presence within this groundbreaking project. At BWA Yachting, we are committed to providing world-class services to superyachts visiting Sindalah and eagerly look forward to creating captivating NEOM itineraries, delivering extraordinary experiences for our clients in this spectacular new destination.”
Scheduled to open in early 2024, Sindalah will serve as a glamorous gateway to the wonders of the Red Sea, captivating luxury travelers worldwide.

On land, Sindalah will boast restaurants curated and managed by renowned Michelin-starred chefs, futuristic and experiential designer fashion and luxury retail offerings, and one of the world’s most exotic golf courses.
For leisure seekers, Sindalah’s beach club, hosted by top entertainment icons in the region, will provide an unparalleled experience.

Sindalah’s commitment to sustainability is a paramount aspect of its development, particularly considering its unique marine environment. The island’s design, led by Italy’s Luca Dini Design & Architecture, draws inspiration from the surrounding coral reefs and waterscapes of the Red Sea.
With its extensive experience working with superyacht owners and captains worldwide, BWA Yachting brings a wealth of expertise to the partnership. The company’s global network spans the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean, and the Americas, ensuring a seamless end-to-end experience for clients.
