Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Prime Minister, and Chairman of Soudah Development, has unveiled a remarkable project: Soudah Peaks. This initiative will transform the Aseer region in southwestern Saudi Arabia into a luxurious mountain tourism destination, perched at 3,015 meters above sea level
Soudah Peaks is not just a development project; it’s a crucial component of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, aiming to diversify the nation’s economy by expanding industries like tourism, hospitality, and entertainment. This project is expected to contribute significantly to the Kingdom’s GDP, with projections exceeding SAR 29 billion, and it will generate thousands of job opportunities
What sets Soudah Peaks apart is its unwavering commitment to preserving the environment, local culture, and heritage while offering living experience amidst breathtaking natural surroundings. This aligns perfectly with global efforts to safeguard the environment for future generations.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman stated, “Soudah Peaks will be a significant addition to the tourism sector in Saudi Arabia, placing the Kingdom firmly on the global tourism map. It’s a celebration of our rich culture and heritage, inviting visitors to discover the beauty of the region, delve into its cultural tapestry, and experience the authentic hospitality of the local community.”
The grand plan for Soudah Peaks includes welcoming over two million visitors annually by 2033. The masterplan is thoughtfully designed to reflect local architectural styles and celebrate the rich cultural and landscape heritage of the region.
Soudah Peaks will be divided into six unique development zones: Tahlal, Sahab, Sabrah, Jareen, Rijal, and Red Rock. Each zone will offer a comprehensive range of different facilities, including hotels, luxury mountain resorts, residential chalets, villas, premium mansion sites, entertainment venues, and commercial attractions. There will also be dedicated spaces for sports, adventure, wellness, and cultural activities.
The development phases are planned carefully, with a focus on sustainability. By 2033, Soudah Development aims to provide 2,700 hospitality keys, 1,336 residential units, and 80,000 square meters of commercial space. Phase one, expected to be completed by 2027, will include 940 hotel keys, 391 residential units, and 32,000 square meters of retail space
This massive project will utilize less than 1% of its vast 627-square-kilometer area, emphasizing Soudah Development’s commitment to environmental protection and sustainable development. The project adheres to the highest sustainability standards and aligns perfectly with the goals of the Saudi Green Initiative
Soudah Development, a company owned by the Public Investment Fund (PIF), will create a unique luxury mountain tourism destination while safeguarding the region’s natural environment and cultural heritage.
