RSG and Clinique La Prairie to develop resort in Amaala

36,115sqm high-end wellness resort will take visitors on transformative personal journeys and health experiences

Red Sea Global (RSG), the developer behind the ambitious regenerative tourism destinations – Amaala and The Red Sea, have announced a partnership with Clinique La Prairie, the longevity clinic and wellness brand.

The partnership will include the development of a high-end, 36,115 square metre Clinique La Prairie Health Resort within Amaala, located on Saudi Arabia’s north-western coastline. The exclusive resort will offer 13 villas, along with 52 rooms and suites, a statement added.

The resort also features a diagnostics lab, museum, beach club, workshop and training rooms, private dining space, and a cooking school. The landscaping around the property will be in tune with the vision of John Heah, the architect of the resort. Idyllic gardens will be used to establish a sense of place and tranquillity, while also adding to the connected journey for visitors.

“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 inspired by arts, wellness, and the purity of the Red Sea.

“The resort’s subtle beauty – a product of Islamic architecture and modern craftmanship – will deliver a serene place in which to unwind, meditate and rejuvenate,” said John Pagano, Group CEO, Red Sea Global.

A Unique Approach to Wellbeing

He added that Clinique La Prairie’s approach to wellbeing prioritises longevity. This is symbolised by the central ‘Longevity Plaza’, which leads to four distinctive areas of the resort – each corresponding to each of the property’s pillars: medical care, nutrition, movement, and wellbeing. These sections will feature a range of activities and facilities, including all the latest technologies developed over 90 years by Clinique La Prairie to enable clients to live a longer, healthier, and fuller life.

Clinique La Prairie has a unique approach to wellbeing, combining leading preventative medicine, genetics and epigenetics with bespoke lifestyle and nutrition plans always grounded in the latest sciences.

It will offer synergistic treatments to rejuvenate inside and out. The medical pillar will include advanced diagnostics lab and radiology, physio, neuroscience, dermo, aesthetics, and dentistry. On the wellbeing side the destination will provide cryochamber, hyperbaric suites, IV infusion and a series of next-generation therapies to be unveiled.

Simone Gibertoni, CEO of Clinique La Prairie, stated: “At Amaala, we are 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 Red Sea Global’s vision of regenerative, ultra-luxury tourism to life.”

Sustainability is a cornerstone of the Amaala masterplan, with the entire destination set to be powered by 100% renewable energy. It will also respect the natural flora and fauna in the destination, which will be reflected through the resort’s design.

One example is that the destination’s buildings have been brought around 100 meters back from the coastline to avoid interference with the natural habitat of the Red Sea’s fragile turtle populations. Lighting is also carefully used to protect the night sky and limit the impact of artificial light on wildlife.

Phase one of the destination is underway and it expects to welcome its first guests in 2024. It will consist of eight resorts offering upwards of 1,300 hotel keys. Once completed, 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.
