Watch: Amaala’s Triple Bay development is taking shape
Red Sea Global has released its first-ever progress video for its premium development, AMAALA, an ultra-luxury destination situated along the north-western coast of Saudi Arabia. Here’s an update on what’s taking place so far.
The excavation works at the Marina, a vibrant haven for maritime enthusiasts, are already 83 per cent completed. The Marina Village project acts as the urban core for Triple Bay, one of the three unique communities (Triple Bay, The Coastal Development and The Island) that will represent three different sets of experiences for AMAALA visitors.
Envisaged to be an active hub of retail, dining, residential and hospitality, Triple Bay will offer a holistic wellness retreat, state-of-the-art diagnostic medical facilities, and authentic treatments designed to incorporate elements from the local environment. It will also be home to a fully integrated sports and entertainment community.
Red Sea Marine Life Institute
Meanwhile, excavation work for the Red Sea Marine Life Institute – the world’s first immersive marine research centre at AMAALA – is also well-advanced, with the main building raft being 85 per cent complete. Its columns, retaining wall, and ground floor slab are in progress while the submarine raft has been completed.
AMAALA Employee Village
Work has also started on the first phase of the AMAALA Employee Village, a premium accommodation and amenities for the hospitality, experiential and support staff who will run the destination, as well as their families. Upon completion of its development, it will house around 19,400 people.
What is AMAALA?
AMAALA, an integrated wellness haven developed by Red Sea Global, is located approximately 700 kilometres north of Jeddah, encompassing a vast area of 4,155 square kilometres, including 68 kilometres of coastline. With sustainability at its core, the entire destination will be run by renewable energy and operate with a zero-carbon footprint once fully operational.
Phase One of AMAALA is focused on the Triple Bay masterplan and will be ready to welcome the first guests in 2025. It will feature more than 1,200 hotel keys across eight different resorts.
Once complete, AMAALA will be home to more than 3,900 hotel rooms across 29 hotels and approximately 1,200 luxury residential villas, apartments, and estate homes, alongside high-end retail establishments, fine dining, wellness, and recreational facilities.
There are five hotels confirmed for AMAALA so far, which include Clinique La Prairie Health Resort (66 ultra-luxury suites and 13 branded residences), Equinox Resort AMAALA (128 keys, including two luxury penthouses), Jayasom Wellness Resort (153 keys and 24 branded residences), Rosewood AMAALA (110 guest rooms and suites and 25 branded residences), and Six Senses AMAALA (64 rooms, six suites, 30 villas, and 25 branded residences).
