The first development phase of Amaala is underway and expects to welcome its first guests in 2024
Red Sea Global has awarded two major contracts for the first phase of development at Amaala’s Triple Bay Marina Village to construction firm Saudi Arabian Baytur.
According to the developer, the contracts include work on its marine life institute – the world’s first fully immersive experiential marine life center – as well as its Yacht Club.
“To develop a truly state-of-the-art marina village at Amaala, we need partners that are not only best in their fields, but who understand and align with our goals and governance principles,” stated Fahad Al Balawi, the Head of Construction of Amaala at Red Sea Global.
As per the terms of the deal, Baytur will be responsible for the construction and oversight of numerous aspects of Triple Bay Marina Village and marine life institute, including structural concrete, dewatering, earthworks, and back of house finishes.
In mid November 2022, a MoU between Partanna and Red Sea Global was signed that will see the firms explore carbon-negative concrete developments.
A separate contract covers the concrete, steel, and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works for the Yacht Club at Triple Bay, the firm added.
“Through our existing work with Saudi Arabian Baytur, we have seen first-hand the high-quality execution of the construction contracts they undertake. And working with best-in-class organizations based here in the Kingdom, we can further our commitment to help create opportunities for Saudi businesses, and work with the best in Saudi talent,” Balawi added.
Saudi Arabian Baytur CEO Murat Giray expressed delight at expanding its partnership with Red Sea lobal. He commented, “We feel ideally suited to support them in creating truly world-class destinations, working with them and alongside other partners – such as leading architects Foster + Partners – to set new standards in sustainable development and create destinations that will put Saudi Arabia on the map.”
Designed to evolve and elevate the very best in travel, Amaala is an ultra-luxury destination and the first global integrated family wellness destination, set to curate transformative personal journeys inspired by arts, wellness, and the purity of the Red Sea, he explained.
In late January 2023, RSG awarded a $266mn contract to AL-AYUNI for first phase of development at Amaala.
Al Balawi pointed out the state-of-the-art facilities and an attractive year-long events calendar will ensure Amaala is a distinctive wellness destination worldwide.
The first development phase of Amaala is well underway and expects to welcome its first guests in 2024. Once complete, 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, he concluded.
In early February 2023, RSG achieved Platinum LEED certification on its Turtle Bay villas and townhouses.
