    The design for the ultra-luxury Triple Bay Yacht Club that is set to be Amaala marina developments centrepiece has officially been unveiled.

    Located along the northern-western coast of Saudia Arabia, within the Triple Bay Marina of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Nature Reserve, the yacht club will be a keystone development for AMAALA as it features a free-flowing structure that aims to create a meeting point right between sea and land.


    The design for the project was done by the architecture firm HKS. The project’s design drew inspiration from two sets of geometry. HKS took a look at the unique rock formations of the Saudi Red Sea coastline and created the club’s custom cantilevered terraces that echo the natural shape of the surrounding cliffs that have been eroded over time by sea and wind.

    The design director at the architecture firm, Dan Flower, stated that they aimed to create the project inspired by the local culture as well as the local landscapes alongside the nature of a marine lifestyle. The second inspiration for the project was withdrawn from the relationship between maritime history as well as the sea and mankind.

    The Red Sea Wellness Resort is a cluster of wellness facilities nestled in a cove along the beautiful, pristine landscape of the Red Sea. Done in collaboration with HKS Architects and Coco hospitality, SRLA led the landscape design and worked on the masterplan.

    The brief for this project was to design the exemplar wellness development, a high-end resort where wellness meets luxury, that preserves the rich and beautiful natural landscape of the red sea coastline.

    The Red Sea natural landscape is rich in natural beauty, with interesting rock formations, and beautiful beaches. To design the resort, SRLA pioneered new approaches to sensitive master-planning, personally visiting the site with a team and meticulously recording all-natural features. With this approach, the natural landscape guided the development, so that each individual building is optimally positioned to harmoniously coexist and preserve its environment.

    The natural landscape also informed the design with biomimicry and natural patterns of choral formation guiding the aesthetics to create a truly unique and harmonious experience. SRLA also used extensive horticultural knowledge to advise on plants that could be used in medicinal gardens and to develop plan palettes, which account for the irrigation and climatic challenges presented by the site.

    AMAALA, the ultra-luxury development located along Saudi Arabia’s north-western coast, has revealed its iconic design for the Triple Bay Yacht Club.

    Set within the Triple Bay Marina of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Nature Reserve, AMAALA’s new Yacht Club is a keystone development with a captivating free-flowing structure that aims to create a one-of-a-kind meeting point between land and sea.

    “AMAALA is one of the flagship Saudi Vision 2030 projects and remains central to the Kingdom’s ambition to become a global tourism leader. We anticipate that AMAALA will become an international hub for luxury yachting, and as such, the yacht club required a world-class design, influenced by the surrounding natural elements and Arabic heritage, and underpinned by our commitment to sustainability,” said John Pagano, CEO, AMAALA.

    “HKS has created a signature piece of architecture at the heart of Triple Bay, and I look forward to seeing the concept become a globally iconic meeting place for luxury yachting enthusiasts from all over the world.”

    Drawing design inspiration from two sets of geometry, HKS first looked to the unique rock formations on the Saudi Red Sea coastline to create the club’s bespoke cantilevered terraces, which echo the natural shape of the surrounding cliffs, eroded over time by wind and sea.

    “We were clear from the outset that we wanted to create a building of its place, with the design drawing inspiration from local landscapes and culture, alongside the nature of the marine lifestyle. The team wanted to reimagine the yacht club as a modern concept, a home from home for nautical enthusiasts from all backgrounds, from leisure to elite sport,” said Dan Flower, HKS Design Director and Lead Architect for AMAALA Yacht Club.

    The second inspiration is drawn from mankind’s relationship with the sea and maritime history. This nautical edge will ensure the building sits seamlessly within the marina as a central hub and focal point.

    Alongside the ‘sea meets land’ concept, the design references the concept of a traditional Arabian house with a simple smooth white exterior that is cut back to reveal luxurious metal externally and a rich palette of natural and locally sourced materials internally such as stone, timber, and leather.

    “AMAALA offers an unparalleled opportunity to shape a new tourism destination and a new home for yachting on the Red Sea. It is a privilege to be involved as designers of this iconic yacht club, which is a centerpiece for the marina and set to evolve the guest experience,” explained Kevin Underwood, Global Head of Hospitality at HKS.

    “We brought together the global expertise of our firm, using our experience of creating luxury destinations to create something truly innovative and contemporary. Sustainability in all aspects is at the heart of our design, seamlessly integrating the building with the stunning mountain and marine landscape of the Red Sea,” he added.

    Covering 7,900 sq. m. and set on four levels, the ultra-luxurious club is set to create a home from home for its members whether to do business, relax, entertain or take part in a calendar of yachting events.

    Arrival is a key moment for guests by land or by water, with the entrance set within an arch that forms a shaded plaza and frames dramatic views to the Red Sea. The area has a mirrored vaulted ceiling over a star-lit floor which creates an alternative night sky for guests in the evening.

    The interior of the club, also designed by HKS, along with the landscaping detail, is as visually stimulating as the exterior, with unparalleled attention to detail to ensure guests remain connected to the landscapes around them. Utilizing local materials with a focus on stone, timber, and metals, and embracing a luxurious, yet authentic brass champagne color scheme, the lounges, and restaurant blend seamlessly together with an infinity loop-like shape throughout.

    Complimenting the yacht club’s functions, the 10-hectare basin hosts a 120-berth marina for yachts up to 130m in length and is designed for both residents and yachting events, regattas and launches. Deepwater superyacht berths, fuel dock, and personalized service ensure Triple Bay’s future rating as a destination for visiting superyachts, international regattas, and domestic cruising.

    Set across 4,155 sq. km. and due to welcome first guests in 2024, Triple Bay spans three natural bays along the coastline. The destination is designed to create a one-of-a-kind global wellness hub and is underpinned by a commitment to sustainable development. The whole development is targeting a minimum LEED Gold standard for environmental sustainability.

    Phase One of Triple Bay is on track to complete in 2024. It consists of eight resorts offering upwards of 1,300 hotel keys and will also feature a range of luxury F&B outlets, retail, and leisure facilities.

    Work is well underway on-site to progress enabling infrastructure, groundwork, and key assets with more than 1,000 workers already on site. More than 250 contracts have been awarded to date in excess of 5 billion riyals, with nearly one billion riyals awarded in the first quarter of this year alone, as delivery of the project ramps up on site.

    A further 1.2 billion riyals is expected to be awarded in the second quarter of the year and an RFP for the Utilities PPP has already been issued to the market, to ensure the development meets its sustainability ambitions. The destination will be off-grid, powered solely by renewable energy.

    AMAALA is a core component of the Vision 2030 strategy to diversify the economy by enabling rapid growth in the tourism sector. The project is expected to create upwards of 50,000 new direct, indirect, and induced jobs for Saudis, as well as upwards of 11 billion riyals to the country’s GDP once fully operational.

    The end of the year promises to be interesting also because many projects related to sustainable development and new tourism destinations are coming to fruition.

    In an exclusive statement to MEConstructionNews.com, AMAALA said that the second quarter of the year would see a ramp up in operations, with an estimated $319.9 million set to be awarded. The developer added that around 70% of the total value awarded has gone to Saudi firms.

    According to the Chief Financial Officer of Amaala Jay Rosen, the first phase of the project will be completed by 2024. Meanwhile, construction camps are preparing with a 5,000 unit construction village for contractors. In February, a contract has been signed with Haif Trading and Contracting Co., for building the infrastructure of the first phase.

    On 8 March 2022 the Amaala project has been awarded two ISO certifications pertaining to Risk Management and Business Continuity Management Systems. (ISO31000:2018 and ISO22301:2019)

    AMAALA’s ISO31000:2018 certification is a result of the implementation of a rigorous process towards risk identification, analysis, evaluation, and treatment that adhere to the destination’s business objectives. The audit successfully recognized the efficiencies of AMAALA’s risk management strategy, which guaranteed confident risk reporting, successful decision making, and accountability across the organization.

    For the ISO 22301:2019 certification, BSI conducted an audit on the current operations of the organization, analyzing the strategic direction of the management system and comparing the current resilience controls and arrangements that have been put in place against the overall strategic goals of the organization and its risk appetite. BSI found AMAALA’s approach to Resilience and its components of Crisis Management and Business Continuity to be compliant with the standard. This competence will continue to be re-assessed annually to ensure the highest levels of implementation are maintained.
    There has been a lot of media coverage on the project, especially on the official Linkedin of Amaala. Many posts attribute the advantages that the project will have on the local environment and economy. However, not much is happening on-site according to Google Maps 2022.
