THE incredible plans for a $500billion Neom mega-city where tourists can stay in mind-bending luxury have been revealed.

The futuristic concept is planned for Sindalah Island off Saudi Arabia's coast and will encompass an array of opulent hotels.

The luxury island in the Red Sea is set to be one of the Middle East's most ambitious urban developments planned by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Concept pictures of the holiday destination showed the island full of grand villas where visitors can enjoy ocean views.

The buildings are refined and polished with a modern architecture design and there is plenty of greenery to balance out the mega-city.

The future getaway will be called Neom and is planned to be an innovation hub that offers luxury and sustainable living.

Chris Newman, the executive director of hotel development at Neom, said: "Marriott International offers one of the most compelling portfolios in the entire industry and enjoys a stellar reputation in the region.

"We are thrilled by the prospect of working together and look forward to building a hospitality experience that captures the spirit of Sindalah’s year-long appeal, while creating unforgettable memories for our guests."

Newman's sentiment was echoed by Marriot representatives who claimed the island would offer "transformational experiences and destination-rooted authenticity".
