Master Plan
Info


Aqaba has a rich urban history spanning over six millennia. Today, the Saraya Aqaba Resort
has reshaped the port city and exalted its standing as a regional touristic and real estate
hub while staying true to its past heritage.

Anchored at the northern tip of the Red Sea, the Saraya Aqaba Resort is the result of a
615,000 m2 mixed-use master plan development showcasing 762 residential units and 1,174
hotel rooms, all for a total project cost of over USD 1 billion.

The Saraya Aqaba Resort combines the charm of an old Arab city and the modern refinement of
a world-class resort. It includes seven luxury hotels, in addition to a multitude of
entertainment facilities including a beach club, an old souk and a world-class water park.

Residential units ranging from luxury villas and townhouses to lofts, beach club duplexes
and apartment units constitute an integral part of the complex, forming a well-knit
community reminiscent of the Old City of Aqaba with its gates, walls and promenades.

The historic lagoon, protected by a man-made breakwater, increases the length of the Aqaba
beach front by 1.5 kilometer and constitutes a central axis for the entire project with the
main facilities being located on its banks. A lighthouse at the end of the pier signals the
development to guide vessels at sea.
