Red Sea Global's Amaala is further enhancing its distinguished array of hotel brands through a new collaboration with Equinox, a global leader in luxury lifestyle brands. This partnership brings about the Equinox Resort Amaala, set amidst the pristine natural landscapes of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea, continuing Amaala's commitment to regenerative tourism.
Equinox Resort Amaala is the latest addition to Amaala's collection of luxury brands, harmonizing sports, fitness, and lifestyle in a setting that boasts 128 keys, including two lavish penthouses. This resort will offer an array of amenities, including exquisite culinary experiences, a rooftop pool with magnesium salt infusion, spa facilities, a Beach Club, and the signature Equinox Fitness Club.
"Amaala encapsulates a harmonious blend of health, wellness, and breathtaking natural beauty, delivering transformative experiences to its guests. The fusion of Equinox's distinct luxury and fitness offerings seamlessly aligns with our vision, offering guests opportunities for self-improvement, nature immersion, and relaxation in utmost comfort," explained a spokesperson from Amaala.
Equinox Resort Amaala is an integral component of the Amaala Marina Village, a visionary creation by renowned architects Foster + Partners. This village will encompass an ensemble of luxury hotels, villas, and condominiums set against a vibrant retail backdrop and picturesque marina views. Designed to embody local architectural excellence, the village's layout of winding streets invites exploration and offers climate-sensitive comfort to visitors.
In the Marina Village, guests can anticipate an array of internationally acclaimed retail and dining brands, all nestled in the charming marina setting that overlooks the impressive Triple Bay Yacht Club, the distinctive Rea Sea marine life institute, and the expansive Red Sea shoreline.
The design of Equinox Resort Amaala, envisioned by Foster + Partners, ensures seamless connectivity with the surroundings. The hotel's strategic positioning provides direct access and vistas to both the Marina Village and the pristine Hijaz Cove. The hotel's entrance, featuring a distinctive floating canopy, creates a grand arrival experience for guests arriving by land or water. The resort boasts four open courtyards inspired by traditional architectural styles, providing shaded areas that naturally cool the air and offer comfort even during warm days.
Equinox Hotels CEO, Christopher Norton, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "Amaala resonates with our commitment to redefine luxury hospitality. Our unique resort proposition promises an unparalleled experience that only Equinox can deliver. Partnering with Red Sea Global, a developer that shares our strong values of sustainability, is truly exciting."
Nestled along Saudi Arabia's west coast, the Red Sea region is characterized by its diverse and delicate natural environments. Red Sea Global's development ethos centers on protection and regeneration, aiming to achieve a 30% net conservation benefit by 2040. This goal involves enhancing diverse ecosystems, including mangroves, seagrass, corals, and terrestrial vegetation. Amaala's meticulous planning and design reflect this commitment to sustainable development.
The ongoing Phase One of Amaala, centered around the Triple Bay masterplan, is progressing well, with its first guests anticipated to arrive in 2024. This phase will introduce eight resorts, providing over 1,200 hotel keys. Upon full completion, Amaala will encompass more than 3,900 hotel rooms across 29 hotels, along with approximately 1,200 luxury residential villas, apartments, and estate homes. This comprehensive project will contribute to high-end retail, fine dining, wellness, and recreational offerings.
