5 exciting restaurants are coming to The St. Regis Red Sea



The restaurants range from an Arabic sharing spot to Japanese izakaya.

The Red Sea Project is one of the most exciting megaprojects in Saudi Arabia. Epic in scale, it will be home to luxurious hotels, which include The St. Regis Red Sea Resort. Ahead of its opening, the property has unveiled its exciting food and beverage offerings.

The St. Regis Red Sea Resort is located on the Ummahat Islands archipelago, which can be accessed by a chartered boat or seaplane. The resort marks the brand’s introduction into the kingdom, and it brings Maldives-like glamour to Saudi Arabia. Not only are the rooms stunning, but also the restaurants.

The Red Sea Project is expected to cover 28,000 kilometres of islands, beaches, deserts, mountains and even volcanos and be a leading destination for eco-luxury. The plan is to have no waste-to-landfill or single-use plastic, and be 100 per cent carbon neutral. Plus, The Red Sea International Airport is in the works, so you can soon land in the megaproject. 


The St. Regis Red Sea will be home to five restaurants. Nesma serves Middle Eastern cuisine, which is designed for sharing. Nesma means light in Arabic, and the venue will be a breezy spot with an island backdrop. Open for breakfast and lunch, there will be beautiful breakfast displays, an a la carte menu, tea masters and a live cooking station. Plus, the concept draws inspiration from its location and will include local music, entertainment and even ingredients.

Gishiki 45

The Japanese restaurant Gishiki 45 will be open for dinner, and boasts local fish and seafood. With 80 seats, the refined space draws its inspiration from modern izakaya venues, and it will include live music as well as entertainment. Gishiki means ritual in Japanese, and we are expecting a tableside service and Insta-worthy plating. Plus, the drinks menu will include Japanese-inspired mocktails.


The rooftop restaurant Tilinia is set in a spectacular space. The name is a nod to the Tellina shell, and the walls boast a beautiful shell-like pattern. Located above the reef, it offers panoramic views beyond the island. Open for dinner, the fine dining menu specialises in grilled meats and includes imported meats as well as locally grown ingredients. Plus, there is a dedicated bar offering low ball mocktails and live music.

The Beach Club

The Beach Club is all about casual, comfort food. The informal lounge is located on the beach, and guests can feel the sand between their toes. The food covers international as well as grilled dishes. The drinks cover iced mocktails, milkshakes and healthy slushies. Plus, the venue boasts a relaxed vibe – watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen, and enjoy the house lounge music soundtrack.

The St. Regis Bar

The St. Regis Red Sea would not be complete without the brand’s signature bar, The St. Regis Bar. Not only does every St. Regis in the world have the bar, but each one serves its own interpretation of The Bloody Mary. St. Regis New York lays claim to inventing The Bloody Mary, so, we are expecting a non-alcoholic version of that drink to come to the Red Sea. Plus, there will be sunset tea rituals, and tea and coffee masters.
