First pics of 'world's most futuristic hotel' that will open in Saudi Arabia released

Sheybarah Resort, located on the uninhabited Shaybara Island, will open to the public by 2024.

First pictures of what is being dubbed the "most futuristic hotel in the world" have been released online.

Sheybarah Resort, located on the uninhabited Shaybara Island, will open to the public by 2024. It is being designed by the company Killa Design

A 45-minute boat ride from the mainland of Saudi Arabia is all that will take to reach the resort, according to reports.

Futuristic orbs, one of the main attractions of the hotel, will 'float on the water' to reflect both the sky and the sea. It will also offer views of the coral reefs below the waterline.

The orbs will be located by the seaside to allow guests to be close to the natural environment.

The site is reportedly home to a highly diverse environment of dense mangroves, desert flora, white sand dunes beaches, coral flats.

Shaybarah Resort will be able to accommodate up to 140 guests and will have a working staff of 260 people.

The resort has plans to generate all its own power through a solar farm on-site in its bid to be completely eco-friendly.

It also has laid down plans for easy availability of clean water with the help of a desalination plant that turns seawater into fresh water. So cool, right?

That's not all. The place will offer a 'unique spa experience' with a pool and fitness facility. It will also have several recreation centres and facilities for guests.

According to the designers, the primary goal of the project is to preserve and enhance the biodiversity in the surrounding habitat.

“We are welcoming the future of tourism to Saudi Arabia. These space-aged orbs are the first batch of 73 overwater villas for our iconic Sheybarah Resort at The Red Sea,” said Red Sea Global's CEO John Pagano.
