Red Sea Global (RSG), the developer behind the under-construction regenerative tourism destinations of Amaala and The Red Sea, has announced the first hotel that will open within the Amaala development.

Clinique La Prairie Health Resort in Amaala will be a wellness-focused property located in Amaala’s Triple Bay hub and will include 13 villas, as well as 52 rooms and suites.

With an emphasis on longevity, the 36,115 sqm resort features a central ‘Longevity Plaza’ leading to four distinctive areas of the resort corresponding to each one of the brand’s pillars – medical care, nutrition, movement and wellbeing.

The resort will also feature a diagnostics lab, museum, beach club, workshop and training rooms, a private dining space, and even a cooking school.

The architect of the resort, John Heah, has worked on hospitality projects of several other brands including Four Seasons and Amman Resorts. Here at the Clinique property in Amaala, landscaping will feature prominently with gardens used to establish a sense of tranquility.

Clinique La Prairie was founded in 1931 and combines preventative medicine, genetics and epigenetics with bespoke lifestyle and nutrition plans. It uses the CLP Longevity Method to provide guests with personalised itineraries over one week or longer stays. The clinic’s experts will work with guests to remedy conditions including fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, digestive disorders and diabetes, among others.

The medical pillar of the brand will see Clinique include an advanced diagnostics lab and radiology, neuroscience, dermo and aesthetics wings. On the wellbeing front, it will provide cryochamber, hyperbaric suites and IV infusion, alongside other therapies.

Simone Gibertoni, CEO of Clinique La Prairie, said: “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.”

Construction on phase one of Amaala which consists of the Triple Bay hub is well underway and will welcome its first guests in 2024. It will consist of eight resorts offering upwards of 1,300 hotel keys.

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

“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,” said John Pagano, group CEO, Red Sea Global.

The Red Sea, the other development alongside Amaala under Red Sea Global, will see three of its resorts open this year itself. These include The St. Regis Red Sea Resort; Nujuma, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve and Six Senses Southern Dunes.
