Robb Report Hosts an Historic, Invitation-Only Event Bringing Many of the World’s Biggest Yachts to the Red Sea

Red Sea Week 2019: The best of the best on the ocean.

By Robb Report Staff 25/10/2019

For more than 40 years, Robb Report has consistently transported its global community to the most extraordinary destinations, experiences and events. Earlier in the month it more than lived up to that reputation by hosting an exceptional event that will become an essential entry into the global calendar: a special invitation-only gathering of the world’s largest megayachts in the Red Sea, for a celebration of food, music and culture.



Robb Report created a luxury resort on a former Egyptian outpost in the Red Sea (Sindalah Island, now part of the NEOM economic zone) to host 400 guests from 38 countries over four days. Invitees ranged from business leaders and politicians to oceanographers, artists and philanthropists. A program of unique discussions and experiences was unveiled, from open-air concerts featuring a line-up of Grammy Award-winning musical names to exceptional culinary events with some of the world’s finest chefs.



Michelin-starred British chef Jason Atherton hosted an exclusive pop-up restaurant, serving a seven-course tasting menu inspired by the local region, while Egyptian-American Michelin-starred Michael Mina and Saudi female chef Almaha Aldossari welcomed guests to their own relaxed Beach House dining experience.

From art masterclasses with Lucy Freud, daughter of artist Lucian Freud, to cultural excursions with local guides, plus numerous sporting opportunities from kite surfing to fishing, invited guests enjoyed four days of unparalleled luxury and adventure.



Exploring one of the great diving locations, all were able to experience first-hand the stunning marine world of the Red Sea—which has some of the best-preserved coral reefs on the planet—whether by transparent kayak, snorkelling or scuba diving. A bespoke spa was also created by luxurious Swiss specialists Waldhaus Flims, which took care of those who just wanted to relax.



By bringing over 65 of the world’s largest superyachts to the region, Robb Report has created the most rarefied, annual marine event in the world: the best of the best on the ocean.
