Hyatt to manage wellness resort Miraval The Red Sea

CHICAGO, May 18, 2022

Hyatt Hotels Corporation, a leading global hospitality company, said that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with The Red Sea Development Company for Miraval The Red Sea, a 180-room luxury wellness resort.

Miraval The Red Sea will introduce the wellness brand’s signature mindfulness-based wellness practices to a new corner of the world, empowering guests with tools and inspiration to find balance and support their emotional and mental wellbeing.

Located on Saudi Arabia’s Shura Island, the central hub of the highly anticipated new hospitality development, The Red Sea Project, the new Miraval resort will pave the way bringing transformative wellness experiences and the largest spa in the Red Sea destination.

The high-end luxury wellness resort is slated to open as part of phase one of the Red Sea development. When it opens, this property is expected to be the Miraval brand’s fourth resort and its first outside the U.S., joining Miraval Arizona, the brand’s original location in Tucson, Ariz.; Miraval Austin, its second location in Austin, Texas; and its newest location, Miraval Berkshires in Lenox, Mass.

“We are honoured to elevate the Miraval brand to a global stage with plans for the brand’s first property outside of the U.S. We are especially grateful this property will continue the brand’s mission of providing authentic, inclusive, and immersive wellness experiences to new guests and audiences, allowing them to craft a mindful journey toward a life in balance,” said Susan Santiago, Head of Miraval Resorts.

Miraval The Red Sea will offer guests 180 guestrooms and suites, including 20 villas, spread across the 3-million-sq-ft (310,000 square meters) plot. Miraval The Red Sea will bring together imaginative, compassionate, and inspiring wellness experiences that will connect guests with local Miraval specialists and contemplative spaces that blend in harmony with the natural surroundings.

Designed by the award-winning Foster+Partners, the resort’s breathtaking design will draw inspiration from the unique Red Sea environment, creating simple and elegant spaces to promote moments of mindfulness, relaxation, and introspection.

“We are thrilled to announce plans for the renowned Miraval brand in one of the Kingdom’s most impressive tourism developments in recent years,” said Ludwig Bouldoukian, Hyatt’s regional vice president of development for the Middle East and Africa.

“Saudi Arabia has become a thriving hub for global business, arts and culture, and pioneering hospitality experiences, and continues to represent an important growth market for Hyatt. Miraval The Red Sea will expand on Hyatt’s growing luxury resort offerings in the Middle East, catering to today’s luxury travellers seeking wellbeing experiences through alignment of body, mind and spirit.”

The Red Sea Project is one of the world's most ambitious regenerative tourism developments. It is expected to become the Kingdom’s premier international leisure destination and a cornerstone to Saudi Arabia’s tourism industry.

The luxury destination is centred around one of the world's hidden natural treasures and is committed to preserving and actively enhancing the natural environment, which spans 10,800 sq miles (28,000 sq km). It includes 124 miles (200 kilometres) of pristine coastline and an archipelago of more than 90 untouched islands, dormant volcanoes, desert, mountains, and a wide variety of wildlife. Miraval The Red Sea will join Grand Hyatt The Red Sea, which is also under development, as the second Hyatt-branded hotel within the Red Sea development.

“We are excited to work with Hyatt to establish the prestigious Miraval brand in this part of the world,” said John Pagano, CEO at The Red Sea Development Company.

“As our second Hyatt-branded property part of phase one of this development, the Miraval brand’s focus on mindfulness and creating balance make it the perfect addition to our growing portfolio of world-class luxury brands. Miraval The Red Sea will meet the growing desire for personalized wellness journeys that are fully integrated with the surrounding environment. We look forward to welcoming guests to experience a new level of unrivalled luxury and immersive wellness tourism.”

Once open, Miraval The Red Sea will become the eighth Hyatt-branded property in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, building on the success of Hyatt’s existing portfolio of properties, including Park Hyatt Jeddah – Marina, Club and Spa, Grand Hyatt Al Khobar Hotel and Residences, Jabal Omar Hyatt Regency Makkah, Hyatt Regency Riyadh Olaya, Hyatt Place Riyadh Al Sulaimania and Hyatt House Jeddah Sari Street. – TradeArabia News Service
