THE RED SEA
THE RED SEA is a brand-new development set to open on the west coast of Saudi Arabia. It is one of the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism destinations, forging a new relationship between luxury tourism and the natural world.
Surrounded by the world's fourth-largest barrier reef system and spanning over 28,000-square-kilometers, THE RED SEA offers world-leading experiences across its archipelago of more than 90 pristine islands, idyllic beaches, dormant volcanos, sweeping desert dunes, mountain canyons and historical cultural sites. It caters to the needs of all discerning travelers – from adventure lovers and cultural enthusiasts, to sun seekers and diving afficionados.
AMAALA is an exquisite, luxury tourism destination that will see guests on transformative personal wellness journeys against the backdrop of stunning landscapes and pristine ecosystems.
Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy world-class yachting and sporting events and feel the unique heritage of the Red Sea through immersive art and cultural adventures.
We aim to not only protect AMAALA’s local environment on the Red Sea coast, but actively regenerate it by honoring its rich, ancient heritage and respecting its unique ecology.
