AL KHOBAR, June 30, 2016

Rezidor, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide and part of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, has announced plans for two new Radisson Blu hotels in Saudi Arabia.

The group plans to open a 158-keys Radisson Blu Resort Half Moon Bay, Al Khobar and a 120-key Radisson Blu Hotel, Buraidah in Q4 2016.

”Saudi Arabia is a focus country for us, and we now operate and develop 30 hotels with around 6,000 rooms in the kingdom. Saudi Arabia’s travel & tourism industry is set to rapidly grow, and we want to support this promising sector together with our experienced regional partners”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, president and CEO of Rezidor.

”Radisson Blu is Europe’s largest upper-upscale brand, Africa’s fastest growing brand – and also a leading player in the Middle East where our portfolio is young and our brand awareness high. Our aim is to further build on this strong platform and constantly unlock value for our owners and guests,” added Elie Younes, executive vice president and chief development officer of Rezidor.

The Radisson Blu Resort Half Moon Bay is located on the west shore of Half Moon Bay, 50 km south of Al Khobar city, and mainly attracts leisure guests as the area is famous for weekend breaks and family holidays. The resort is a conversion of an existing property and features 158 rooms, suites, chalets and villas. Guests enjoy two restaurants, a lobby café and a beach café, a pool and a kids’ pool, a male gym, a female spa with indoor pool, a recreation area, and a prayer room. Business travellers benefit from a 80-sq-m meeting room.

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Buraidah is located in Buraidah, capital of the Al Qassim Province and a principle production centre of the country – the city is well known for its dates, lemon, orange and cereal farms. The new built property comprises 107 rooms and 12 villas, an all-day-dining restaurant, 6 meeting rooms on a total surface of 270-sq-m, and a gym. The site is easily accessible from the Northern Ring Road and 25 km away from the regional airport that serves regional and international destinations. - TradeArabia News Service
