Red Sea Global (RSG), the developer behind the ambitious Amaala and The Red Sea regenerative tourism destinations in Saudi Arabia, has partnered with Clinique La Prairie, an established Swiss longevity clinic and wellness brand.

The partnership involves the development of a high-end 36,115sq m Clinique La Prairie Health Resort offering 13 villas, as well as 52 rooms and suites.

The resort will open as part of the Amaala development which is being brought to life on Saudi Arabia’s north-western coastline.

Amaala has been billed as the first global integrated family wellness destination and will offer ‘curated transformative personal journeys’ inspired by arts, wellness and the Red Sea.

When complete, the 4,155sq km site will have eight resorts, 200 residential units and a marina.

Amaala's first notable opening, called Triple Bay, is scheduled for completion in 2024. This is one of three high-profile developments that make up Amaala, which is being dubbed the new ‘riviera of the Middle East’.

“Clinique La Prairie’s world-renowned facilities and health and wellness experiences, set against Saudi Arabia’s extraordinary natural landscapes, will take our visitors on transformative personal journeys,” said John Pagano, RSG group CEO.

“The resort’s subtle beauty – a product of Islamic architecture and modern craftsmanship – will deliver a serene place in which to unwind, meditate and rejuvenate.”

Thoughtful architecture

Clinique La Prairie’s approach to wellbeing puts longevity front and centre. In a nod to this, its upcoming Saudi resort will be anchored by a central Longevity Plaza leading to four distinctive areas corresponding to each one of the brand’s pillars – medical care, nutrition, movement and wellbeing.

The on-site team will work to slow the process of ageing, as well as restore visitors’ internal balance and remedy a wide range of conditions, including fatigue, anxiety, digestive disorders, insomnia, diabetes and more.

Facilities will include a diagnostics lab, museum, beach club, workshop and training rooms, private dining space, and even a cooking school.

Landscaping around the property will be vital to architect John Heah’s vision for the resort. He plans to use idyllic gardens to establish a sense of place and tranquillity.

Taking guests to a new state of mindClinique La Prairie’s approach to wellbeing involves combining preventative medicine, genetics and epigenetics with bespoke lifestyle and nutrition plans grounded in the latest scientific research.

Using the CLP Longevity Method, medical and holistic specialists will provide guests with hyper-personalised itineraries over one week or longer stays, to embrace health and life to its fullest potential.

Modern science and ancient healing practices will be combined to offer holistic practices that leave guests feeling rejuvenated inside and out.

The medical facility will include an advanced diagnostics lab and radiology, physio, neuroscience, dermo, aesthetics and dentistry. Meanwhile, the wellbeing area will provide cryotherapy, hyperbaric suites, IV infusions and a series of next-generation therapies to be unveiled.

Respecting surrounding environments

Phase one of Amaala is well underway and expects to welcome its first guests in 2024. It will consist of eight resorts offering upwards of 1,300 hotel keys.

Sustainability is a cornerstone of Amaala, with the carbon-neutral destination set to be powered by 100 per cent renewable energy.

Simone Gibertoni, CEO of Clinique La Prairie, stated: “At Amaala, we’re creating the most important health and longevity-focused resort ever developed. We’re delighted to be building our very first full-scale destination in such an extraordinary setting and to help bring RSG’s vision of regenerative, ultra-luxury tourism to life.”

Upon completion, Amaala will be home to more than 3,000 hotel rooms across 25 hotels, and approximately 900 luxury residential villas, apartments, and estate homes, alongside high-end retail establishments, fine dining, wellness and recreational facilities.
