Unique Hotel Super-yacht Will Set Sail in Saudi Arabia

Project Sama will be operated by hospitality firm Aman and Cruise Saudi in a joint partnership

About Project Sama

Project Sama, a first-of-its-kind luxury yacht has been unveiled for Saudi Arabian waters. The vessel stretches 183 metres, will have 50 suites, two helipads and its own Japanese garden. Saudi’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) is a shareholder and the yacht will be operated by luxury hotel group Aman.

Project Sama is expected to set sail in 2025. Designed in partnership with SINOT Yacht Architecture & Design, one of the world’s top yacht design firms, the vessel will see Aman’s eastern heritage and design philosophy integrated with the architecture.

Ultra-luxury Aman Resorts are teaming up with Cruise Saudi to launch Project Sama: a floating hotel designed on a 183-metre superyacht that will provide a luxurious new way to explore Saudi Arabia’s incredible coastline. There’s just 50 suites onboard, each with a private balcony where guests can soak up the stunning sea views as they sail across the coastline. Alongside typical cruise features such as an all-day dining restaurant, club lounge and spa, Project Sama will also feature one-of-a-kind amenities such as a Japanese zen garden, two helipads and even a beach club, where guests will benefit from direct access to the sea from the stern of the ship. Those hoping to bag themselves a cabin on the luxe new floating hotel will have a little while to wait, as the project isn’t expected to launch until 2025.

It will also have a spa, beach club and a restaurant. The joint venture between Aman and Cruise Saudi was signed by Cruise Saudi’s managing director, Fawaz Farooqui, and chairman and CEO of Aman, Vlad Doronin.

“Project Sama will provide transformative experiences within the revered Aman setting and service, which is unlike any other yacht experience, ultimately creating a whole new category in on the water discovery,” explained Aman chairman and chief executive, Vlad Doronin at the announcement last month.
