The Radisson Group has announced the signing of three new hotels in Saudi Arabia, the Radisson Blu, Park Inn by Radisson, and Radisson Individuals to strengthen the brand’s presence within the Kingdom.
The group confirmed the signing of Vivid Jeddah Hotel, a member of Radisson Individuals, planned to open in Q4 2021, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Jeddah Al Hamra and the Park Inn by Radisson Jeddah Al Hamra, both set to open in Q3 2022.
These new signings will add a total of 625 rooms, doubling the group’s portfolio in Jeddah, a statement from the group said.
Vice President Business Development, Middle East, Cyprus, Greece and Pakistan, Elie Milky said: “Our partnership with Dar Al Diyafah to double our portfolio in Jeddah with the new signings will contribute to Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 and its economic diversification plan aiming to increase the contribution of leisure and business travel and tourism to the country’s economy.”
