Radisson Hotel Group has opened a new hotel, which is located next to the King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Radisson Hotel Riyadh Airport is the group’s fourth brand to debut in the Kingdom.

The hotel is located 25 minutes from the city centre and 5km from the King Khalid International Airport.

Radisson Hotel Group MEA area senior vice-president Tim Cordon said: “We are delighted to welcome our first airport hotel to Riyadh and bring an additional brand from our portfolio to the capital.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia remains a key development area for us, evident in our fast expansion within the country aligned with Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.

“We are thrilled for guests to experience this upscale hotel brand which enables guests to focus on a work/life balance and find harmony in their travel experience.”

Radisson Hotel Riyadh Airport provides 471 rooms including duplex suites and three-bedroom villas and family connecting rooms.

The family villas boast a private pool, separate living area, a dining area featuring fully equipped kitchen and washing machine.

The hotel has two dining venues that serve both international and Arabic dishes. Other guest amenities include three outdoor pools, two indoor pools, a separate ladies and men fitness studio, and a spa.

It also features 11 meeting rooms equipped with advanced technology and a soon to open 1,800m2 auditorium.

Radisson has more than 25 hotels, resorts, and serviced apartments in operation and under development in Saudi Arabia.

In September last year, Radisson signed three new hotels in Makkah, Saudi Arabia within an urban development Thakher Makkah megaproject.
