A focus on sports, fitness and lifestyle

The hotel’s interior design, by renowned architecture firm Foster + Partners, has been curated to ensure complete connectivity to the surrounding area. A distinctive feature of Equinox Resort Amaala will be the hotel’s Porte Cochere and its floating canopy, where guests can expect a dramatic entrance as they arrive by boat or car.

The hotel will have four open courtyards, which take inspiration from traditional architectural styles. The shaded courtyards, complete with stunning landscape and water features, will naturally cool the air, allowing guests to enjoy the resort even during the warmest days.

Guest rooms are positioned to capture either the panoramic views of the Hijaz Cove or the marina with its super yachts and the buzzing promenade.

Equinox’s unique brand of luxury and fitness is a fantastic fit, allowing visitors to choose seeking self-improvement during their stay, getting back to nature on land or at sea, or simply enjoying quiet moments with loved ones in comfort and privacy,” said John Pagano, Group CEO of Red Sea Global.

Equinox Hotels CEO, Christopher Norton, said, “Amaala is a destination that perfectly aligns with our mission of redefining luxury hospitality. Our highly differentiated resort offering will provide guests an unparalleled experience that only a brand like Equinox can deliver.”

Opening date

The first phase of the development is slated for completion by 2024 – not long to go now – and will consist of more than 1,200 hotel rooms across eight different resorts. The complete integrated wellness destination is slated for completion by 2027.
