Rosewood Amaala to offer regenerative retreat in Saudi Arabia

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is to create a sustainable wellness sanctuary in Saudi Arabia’s Amaala development on the scenic Red Sea coast.

This luxury wellness resort on the pristine west coast of Saudi Arabia will be designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel to provide an environment that fosters wellness and tranquillity.

A regenerative tourism model

Red Sea Global has selected Rosewood Hotels & Resorts to manage a new resort in the Amaala destination now being developed in Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea region. Amaala will provide an integrated wellness haven at the heart of the country’s ambitious Red Sea regenerative tourism project. 

Rosewood is proving its commitment to bringing affluent explorers to this region with a series of upcoming openings across the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia. This property at Amaala will focus on what it truly means to be regenerative with experiences that fuse sustainability with wellness.

“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,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer at Rosewood Hotel Group.

“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, commented: “We are truly proud to reveal this partnership with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts—an iconic and world-renowned brand that shares our values in protecting people and planet, and belief in the potential of tourism as a force for good.”

“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.”

Sustainability and wellness

Rosewood Amaala will be scenically set between the world’s fourth largest reef and the Hijazi mountains. Based on a belief that the future of hospitality is rooted in both people and the planet, the overall development will work towards protecting and enhancing this environment.

The Rosewood resort will focus on the wellbeing of guests and community as well as the native flora and fauna of this environment’s native flora and fauna. ACPV Architects will draw on this philosophy for a design concept prioritising longevity.

The hotel group’s ‘sense of place’ philosophy will be presented through the property’s 100 guest rooms and suites, 25 Rosewood Residences and facilities including Rosewood Explorer’s Club for child-friendly experiences, dining concepts, club lounges and Asaya Spa.

Hidden amid the landscape, this spa will be the focal point of Rosewood Amaala’s wellness offering as it provides a sanctuary for meditation, tranquillity and wellbeing with private treatment pavilions positioned around a green oasis.

Sustainability initiatives of the overall Amaala development include the goal of being powered by 100% renewable energy and having a zero-carbon footprint. The construction of Rosewood Amaala will ensure the turtle nesting sites found around the site’s shores are left undisturbed.
