Rosewood Amaala unveils a luxurious regenerative tourism project
The resort includes rock pools, fine dining and a secluded spa.
The Red Sea Project is one of the most exciting megaprojects in Saudi Arabia. The tourism initiative is attracting world-famous hotel brands, from The St. Regis to Ritz Carlton, and now it has one more to add to the list. Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of Rosewood Amaala, and it has got us daydreaming about our next getaway.
Red Sea Global has selected Rosewood Hotels & Resorts to create a regenerative tourism project. Rosewood Amaala aims to combine wellness and sustainability, all while creating the kind of resort that gives you FOMO. The hotel will be home to 110 rooms and suites, and 25 residences.
Rosewood Amaala will make the most of its lush landscape. The hotel will be surrounded by the world’s fourth-largest reef and the Hijazi mountains. The project plans to focus not only the wellbeing of its guests, but also the surrounding native flora and fauna.
Rosewood Amaala will be designed by renowned architecture firm, ACPV ARCHITECTS Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. The architects will prioritise longevity, tranquillity and wellness. If the company’s previous projects, which range from luxury hotels in Europe, China and the Middle East to Taipei Sky Tower, are anything to go by, we’re expecting an architectural wonder.
The hotel will be home to a range of restaurants including fine dining, casual eateries and beach-inspired lounges, which take advantage of those wish-you-were-here Red Sea views. Plus, facilities include two rock pools, a kids’ club, and Asaya Spa.
The whole site aims to be powered by 100 per cent renewable energy and have a zero-carbon footprint. Plus, construction work has respected the environment, and ensured that endangered Hawksbill and Green Turtles are not affected.
Sonia Cheng, Chief Executive Officer at Rosewood Hotel Group, explains: “We are deeply honoured to partner with Red Sea Global on Rosewood Amaala and work together to offer a more regenerative model of hospitality for future generations. Rosewood’s values of prioritising both people and planet through impactful offerings connects seamlessly with the development’s larger vision, and we look forward to embracing our role of providing a wellness oasis nestled within this ambitious project.”
John Pagano, Group CEO of Red Sea Global, added: “Rosewood Amaala has been meticulously designed to seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor living, while offering guests a level of privacy and exclusivity often found in an all-villa resort. Together, we want to create a lifestyle oasis for our guests that aims to welcome a regenerative era of travel, while shining a positive light on this diverse corner of the globe.”
Rosewood has some exciting hotels in development across the Middle East, which include the opening of Rosewood Doha in 2023, Rosewood Riyadh in 2025 and Rosewood Red Sea in the future. Amaala’s Triple Bay masterplan in the Red Sea is expected to open in 2024, and will include 25 hotels, 900 residential villas, apartments, and estate homes, and high-end shops, restaurants, wellness and recreational facilities.
