“Hyatt is proud to be one of the first international hoteliers to bring discreet, contemporary luxury to Saudi Arabia,” said Thierry Bertin, vice president sales and marketing, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts – South West Asia.
“We are delighted the industry’s leaders recognised the innovative design concept of Park Hyatt Jeddah at the Mehec awards," Bertin added.
