Three Hotel Brands Make Their Move On Saudi Arabia

By Dominic Ellis  gulfbusiness.com

In a significant day for Saudi Arabia’s travel industry, three brands have announced their entry into the country’s burgeoning travel market.

Luxury operator One&Only Resorts is to open a 150-room resort on Jeddah’s Red Sea, marking its first property in Saudi Arabia.

The deal was announced today by Kerzner International Holdings, Al Khozama Management Company and Saudi Oger, although no timeframe for opening was given. The 95,000sqm resort, located in Obhur to the north of the city, will feature 230 metres of beachfront and 150 rooms, suites and villas.

With extensive meeting facilities, dining, retail and sporting options, health spa and residential component, the resort aims to become a destination for business and leisure travellers.

Alan Leibman, CEO, Kerzner International, described the beachfront location as “remarkable” and should help it stand out from the numerable five-star competitors in the city. It marks the operator’s third resort in the region, complementing its two properties in Dubai, the One&Only Palm Jumeirah and One&Only The Palm. More info
