Saudi hotel market set to go upscale


Saudi Arabia’s hotel market is growing quickly and will likely see the addition of several top tier hospitality brands over the next decade, according to industry executives.

Already, the Arabian Gulf’s largest commercial and leisure destination is set to benefit from the opening of a property managed by the Park Hyatt Jeddah.
On schedule to open this September, the property will make a significant impact on the upscale market currently on offer in Saudi’s second city, according to Munir Ahmed, Park Hyatt Jeddah’s newly appointed general manager.
“Jeddah is a beautiful city with a rich and magnificent history, and Hyatt is proud to be able to offer the community its global standard of excellence in hospitality, while adhering closely to the customs and traditions of its people,” said Ahmed.
Situated just minutes away from the city’s business district, the 142 room Park Hyatt Jeddah is part of a 140,000 sq m equestrian complex offering unrestricted access to the Red Sea. In addition, the hotel will feature the Park Hyatt Jeddah Spa and Wellness Center.
