Equinox Resort Amaala by Foster and Partners

Equinox Resort Amaala

Designs have been revealed for the Foster + Partners-designed Equinox Resort Amaala, a hotel on Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea coast.

It is located in the new Marina Village at Amaala, also designed by the practice, which features a collection of luxury hotels, villas and condominiums, set in a lively retail precinct with spectacular marina views.

When complete, the village will form an integral part of Red Sea Global’s wider Triple Bay development.

Gerard Evenden, Head of Studio, Foster + Partners, said: “We are working closely with Red Sea Global and Equinox to create an exciting new destination within the Marina Village at Amaala.

The hotel is designed around four shaded green courtyards, inspired by the traditional architecture of the region, which naturally cool the air to create a comfortable and restorative environment.

Arrivals and departures – by boat or electric car – are framed by a spectacular floating canopy that creates a shaded drop off zone at the hotel’s main entrance.”

John Pagano, Group CEO, Red Sea Global, said: “Amaala brings the best in health and wellness together in an area of extraordinary natural beauty to offer exceptional and transformative experiences for guests.

Equinox’s unique brand of luxury and fitness is a fantastic fit, allowing visitors to choose seeking self-improvement during their stay, getting back to nature on land or at sea, or simply enjoying quiet moments with loved ones in comfort and privacy.”

With a focus on sports, fitness and lifestyle, the hotel comprises 128 rooms, including two luxury penthouses as well as a suite of amenities such as several world-class culinary concepts, a magnesium salt rooftop pool, spa, Beach Club, and a signature Equinox Fitness Club.

Guest rooms have been carefully planned to capture the panoramic views of the Hijaz Cove or the marina with its lively promenade. Source and images Courtesy of Foster and Partners.
