A Hyatt affiliate has signed agreements with Naseel Holding Company to manage three new Hyatt-branded hotels in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The addition of the three new hotel agreements will bring Hyatt-branded hotels under development in Saudi Arabia to six, across five Hyatt brands.
The 275-room Park Hyatt Riyadh, currently slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2015, will feature three restaurants, a lounge, 1,450m² of meeting and event space, a spa and a fitness centre.
The 400-room Grand Hyatt Jeddah is expected to open in early 2016 and will offer three restaurants, a lobby lounge, 5,700m² of meeting and event space, a spa and fitness centre.
The 240-room Hyatt Regency Jeddah, which is due to open in the second half of 2015, will feature three restaurants, a lobby lounge, 1,700m² of meeting and event space, and a spa and fitness centre.
There is one Hyatt-branded hotel currently open in Saudi Arabia: Park Hyatt Jeddah – Marina, Club and Spa, which opened in 2009.
Peter Norman, senior vice president – acquisitions and development for Hyatt International – Europe, Africa, and Middle East, said: "Expanding the number of Hyatt-branded hotels in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be a significant step towards our goal of being the preferred brand for global travellers."
