Construction progress has been shared for the Amaala giga-project, the second project of Red Sea Global, standing as its wellness and maritime hub.
Developer Red Sea Global said that excavation work at the Marina is already 83 per cent completed. It added that the project will soon become a “vibrant haven” for maritime enthusiasts.
The first phase will consist of six hotels and roughly 1,000 hotel keys. When complete in 2027, it will offer approximately 3,000 hotel rooms in around 25 hotels as well as 200 high-end retail establishments, fine dining, wellness, and recreational facilities, set across three unique communities: Triple Bay, The Coastal Development and The Island.
It also includes a yacht club and a marine research centre.
Amaala plans to run on entirely renewable energy sources. It also aims to operate with a zero-carbon footprint and sustainably source 50 per cent of all food by 2030.
Details for all the hotels so far.
Clinique La Prairie Health Resort
Clinique La Prairie Health Resort houses everything from a diagnostic lab and neuroscience facilities to a beach club and luxury villas.
The resort will have 52 rooms and suites and 13 villas, spread over 36,115 sq m. Looking to push wellness tourism to the next level, Amaala’s first hotel promises “longevity wellness.” This means the space will focus on medical care, nutrition, movement and well-being, with facilities centred at the Longevity Plaza.
Alongside the diagnostic lab and museum, there will be facilities for preventative medicine, genetics and epigenetics, and a fully-fledged team versed in treatments for fatigue, anxiety, digestive disorders, insomnia, diabetes and more.
There will be spaces for radiology as well, along with neuroscience, physio and aesthetic medicine. The resort will run on 100 per cent renewable energy, according to plans.
Jayasom Wellness Resort
The Jayasom Wellness Resort in Amaala will boast 153 hotel keys and 24 branded residences. The resort will also have a large adults-only zone on-site.
Approximately 7,000 sq m will be dedicated to health, fitness, physiotherapy, nutrition, aesthetic beauty and a spa. Spaces across the resort will be dedicated to “contemplation, self-healing, and self-discovery,” says developer Red Sea Global.
The spa will have an adults-only space and a more energetic family experience.
Rosewood is the third hotel to be announced for Amaala, Saudi Arabia’s wellness-focused giga-project along the Red Sea. Rosewood Amaala is envisioned to be an ultra-luxury-level hotel, with rock pools, beach clubs, fine-dining spots and buy-out residences.
The property will have 110 rooms and suites, along with 25 residences. Rosewood Amaala will be surrounded by the world’s fourth-largest reef and the Hijazi mountains. It is being developed by Red Sea Global, a PIF-backed company ardently supporting “regenerative development” above all else.
The entire destination will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy and aims to have zero-carbon footprint—with plans to be both zero waste to landfill. Additionally, the endangered Hawksbill and Green Turtles have many nesting sites around the Rosewood Amaala beaches, meaning all construction and design work has been centered around ensuring the turtles are left uninterrupted.
Six Senses Amaala
The Six Senses Amaala will have 64 rooms, six suites, 30 villas, and 25 branded residences, designed by architects U+A and interiors by Studio Carter, which are inspired by the region’s traditional coastal villages, which integrate with the topography and use locally sourced materials.
Spa facilities will include a cryotherapy chamber, longevity clinic, and male and female thermal areas featuring Finnish and infrared saunas, herbal steam rooms, salt rooms, vitality pools, and ice baths. The Watsu pool, sound dome, yoga platform, and multi-sensory relaxation areas will all be used.
Sustainability is at the core of every facet of the resort’s building and operating practices. This includes a dedicated desalination plant that has zero impact on the pristine coral reefs and a ban on single-use plastics. All wastewater and organic waste will be used for agriculture and the organic farm. Energy requirements will be met using renewable sources in line with the development’s zero carbon footprint. With the ambition to become a top diving and yachting destination, emphasis has been placed on conserving the marine and coastal ecosystem.
Equinox Resort Amaala
Equinox is first and foremost a fitness company, with more than 300 locations globally ranging from luxury gyms, to yoga studios and running events.
The Equinox Resort Amaala will focus on sports, fitness and lifestyle, and comprise 128 keys, including two penthouses as well as amenities such as restaurants, a magnesium salt rooftop pool, spa, beach club, and an Equinox Fitness Club.
