Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is the latest brand to join the collection of luxury hospitality partners at Saudi Arabia's upcoming regenerative tourism destination Amaala.

Positioned as the premier global integrated family wellness destination, Amaala is taking shape along Saudi Arabia’s north-western coastline, promising transformative experiences inspired by art, wellness and the allure of the Red Sea.

Four Seasons, in collaboration with Amaala’s developer Red Sea Global (RSG), is set to co-develop a luxury wellness resort and private residences within Triple Bay – one of Amaala’s three high-profile developments.

Designed by architects U+A, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Amaala will feature 220 keys alongside 26 branded residential villas and a luxury spa.

In addition to Four Seasons, RSG has already forged partnerships with Equinox Hotels, Clinique La Prairie, Jayasom (sister brand to Chiva-Som)and Rosewood to operate wellness resorts in Amaala.

"Amaala is creating a new category of coastal lifestyle with regeneration and wellness at its core," says John Pagano, group CEO of RSG.

"With uninterrupted views of the Hijaz Cove, Four Seasons Amaala is designed to allow guests and residents to return to nature, recharging their mind, body and soul,"

Phase one of Amaala – focused on the Triple Bay masterplan – is well underway, with the first guests set to be welcomed in 2025.

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, supporting high-end retail, fine dining, wellness and recreational facilities.

Weaving in wellness

Aligned with Amaala's commitment to sustainability and wellbeing, wellness will be a central pillar at the Four Seasons resort.

The resort will include a luxury spa nestled within its garden of tranquillity and inspiration, featuring a sculptured waterfall.

Four Seasons revealed plans for an Organic Spa Garden which it claims will be a focal point, offering therapeutic remedies including halotherapy, cryotherapy and advanced skin therapies.

For fitness enthusiasts, the property will offer a bespoke collaboration with fitness trainer Harley Pasternak to merge high-performance training with Triple Bay's 300 hectares of untouched hills, wadis and beaches.

Guests and residents will also be able to take part in canyoning, an array of guided hikes, mountain biking and horse-riding, or visit a 27-hole oceanfront golf course.

In addition, the new property will feature six restaurant and bar outlets, meetings and event spaces, a Kids For All Seasons programme and a Discovery Centre where visitors can learn about the local surroundings.

After a day of new experiences, a Four Seasons Sleep Concierge will offer à la carte turndown menus with a choice of bath products, pillow scents, custom turndown music, mattress and pillow filling, pre-set vibrating and adjustable bed settings complete with circadian light automated settings.

ResidencesFour Seasons Amaala’s 26 private residences will comprise luxurious villas ranging from 320sq m to more than 650sq m, each with its own pool and ocean view.

Growing footprint

Four Seasons Amaala will be the latest in Four Seasons’ growing portfolio in the Kingdom, joining Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre, as well as upcoming projects at The Red Sea on Shura Island, Jeddah at the Corniche, NEOM at Sindalah and Diriyah.
