Amaala, one of the largest ultra-luxury sustainable resort projects ever conceived – one that will create 22,400 jobs and attract 310,000 visitors annually – is in the design stages for Saudi Arabia’s northeastern coast along the Red Sea.

Amaala will curate transformative, personal journeys inspired by arts, wellness and the purity of the Red Sea.

Set against a backdrop of imposing mountains and sparkling seas – and running alongside a coastline of beautiful coves – this seascape will offer one of the world’s most exclusive wellness retreats supported by world-class luxury resorts, recreational activities, a sports performance academy and active sports club facilities including equestrian, polo, camel racing, falconry, golf and tennis.

The Island is set to become one of the world’s most exclusive enclaves, offering exquisitely-designed Arabic botanical gardens showcasing works of art and sculpture and breathtaking landscapes surrounding elegant private villas. Anchored by an artist village of working studios, artisan shops, exhibit and performance facilities, The Village shall host an active arts community supported by ultra-luxury beachfront resorts and marinas, transforming the island into a stunning sea treasure.

Playing host to a dynamic programme of exciting events from the global arts and cultural calendar, this coastline will be a gathering place for a community of influencers and connoisseurs, featuring a contemporary arts museum and cultural district, to become the epicentre of the arts in the Middle East.
