Continued commitment to investing in wellness and sustainability.
Red Sea Global (RSG), a joint stock company wholly owned by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) of the Saudi Arabia behind some of the world’s most ambitious development initiatives, including luxury regenerative tourism destinations such as The Red Sea and Amaala, announced the partnership with Equinox, a global leader among luxury lifestyle brands, to create Equinox Resort Amaala in one of the world’s best preserved natural environments, Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea.
The Equinox Resort Amaala is part of the Amaala Marina Village designed by architects Foster + Partners, which will include several luxury hotels, villas and condominiums set in a commercial district overlooking the marina. The Village is part of the larger Triple Bay development, and adopts the best elements of local architecture, with streets designed to channel breezes, offer shade and protection, and filter light, providing natural climate control.
The hotel, focused on sports, fitness, and luxury, will have 128 rooms, two luxurious penthouses, several world-class culinary concepts, a magnesium salt rooftop pool, a spa, a Beach Club, and an Equinox Fitness Club. Its prime location offers direct access and views of Marina Village and pristine Hijaz Cove.
The entrance has a distinctive mobile and scenic canopy that welcomes guests arriving by boat or car, four open courtyards inspired by traditional local architectural styles that naturally refresh with shade and water features, and rooms designed to give panoramic views of Hijaz Bay or the marina.
Red Sea Global has placed the protection and regeneration of the Red Sea the focus of its development philosophy with the goal of achieving a net conservation benefit of 30 percent by 2040, which will be achieved by improving biologically diverse habitats, including mangroves, corals, and terrestrial vegetation, a commitment visible throughout Amaala’s design.
Phase 1 of Amaala is focused on the development of Triple Bay, and the first guests will be welcomed in 2024. It will consist of eight resorts with 1,200 rooms. When completed, Amaala will be home to more than 3,900 rooms in 29 hotels and about 1,200 luxury residential villas, apartments and estate houses, as well as high-end stores, restaurants, spas and recreational facilities.
The entire destination will be powered by 100% renewable energy, saving nearly half a million tons of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere annually, and when fully operational will operate with a carbon footprint of 0.
