Six Senses has announced that it will open a new property in the Amaala development which is located in the north-west of Saudi Arabia. The exact dates by when this property will open have not yet been revealed.

Six Senses Amaala will feature 64 rooms, six suites, 30 villas, and 25 branded residences designed by architects U+A, and its interiors by Studio Carter.

The design will be inspired by the region’s traditional coastal villages and will reportedly use locally sourced materials.

The property will be located along Amaala’s Triple Bay area, and will offer panoramic views across the Hijaz Cove to the Red Sea. Guests will also be able to view Pura Cove and its iridescent blue lagoons.

The central feature of the site is the Mesa, featuring overhangs and caves. Wind and water erosion have scored the limestone that now reveals fossilized corals and mollusks. To the north, the village opens to the beaches of Hijaz Cove, which will include a beach restaurant, family pool, and branded residences. To the south, the village leads to natural rock pools, pocket beaches, and a mangrove boardwalk to access the spa which will be located in a private cove.

Spa facilities will include a cryotherapy chamber, longevity clinic, and male and female thermal areas featuring Finnish and infrared saunas, herbal steam rooms, salt rooms, vitality pools, and ice baths. It will also have a Watsu pool, sound dome, yoga platform, and multi-sensory relaxation areas.

The F&B options at Six Senses Amaala will include a coffee roastery, bakery, water bar, and shisha tea house that focuses all-day dining menus with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influences. Its signature restaurant will offer Southeast Asian cuisine and barbecue foods.

As part of Six Senses Amaala’s sustainability initiatives, there will be a dedicated desalination plant that doesn’t impact the nearby coral reefs. Six Senses will also impose a ban on single-use plastics. All wastewater and organic waste will be used for agriculture and on its organic farm. Energy requirements will be met using renewable sources.

“We are connected by a shared commitment to the practice, appreciation, and advancement of arts and culture, wellness, and environmental preservation,” said Six Senses CEO Neil Jacobs. “Six Senses Amaala is part of a holistic hub for the arts, a leading diving destination, an extension of the Mediterranean yachting corridors, and an integrated wellness community, all of which we hope inspires guests to embark on transformative personal journeys.”

John Pagano, group CEO of Red Sea Global, the developer behind Amaala, added: “The resort is situated within one of the most dramatic landscapes along Triple Bay, with a stunning backdrop of the bay itself and panoramic views of the pristine Red Sea coast. This announcement also comes at an exciting time as we are close to welcoming the first guests to Six Senses Southern Dunes, The Red Sea, which will open in the coming months.”

Six Senses Southern Dunes, The Red Sea is expected to become the first resort to open later this year within the Red Sea development. That inland property will feature 46 villas and a 36-key hotel.

Elsewhere in Amaala, Rosewood Hotels and Resorts will open Rosewood Amaala which will feature 110 guest rooms and suites, and 25 Rosewood Residences too. Jayasom, a wellness resort operator, has unveiled plans to open Jayasom Wellness Resort, Amaala which will feature 177 keys and is situated in Triple Bay, while Clinique La Prairie Health Resort in Amaala will be a wellness-focused property also located in Amaala’s Triple Bay hub and will include 13 villas, as well as 52 rooms and suites.,
