Hyatt has announced an expansion of its Middle East portfolio with two new properties – Alila Hinu Bay in Oman and Grand Hyatt Al Khobar Hotel and Residences in Saudi Arabia.

Along with the just-launched Alila Napa Valley in California, the new properties expand the hotel group’s portfolio to more than 1,000 properties globally.

The newly opened Grand Hyatt Al Khobar Hotel and Residences, featuring 368 rooms, including 54 residential units, is located in the commercial and retail heart of Al Khobar and features all-day dining facilities, a lobby lounge, banquet halls, fitness centre and spa.

Meanwhile the yet-to-open Alila Hinu Bay in Salalah, Oman, located on 45 hectares of beachfront, features 112 rooms and offers guests ‘farm-to-table’ dining experiences in its restaurants.

The Alila brand offers luxury hotels in unique locations, distinguished by innovative eco-design and a strong commitment to sustainable tourism.

“Hyatt’s thoughtful journey to 1,000 hotels has been grounded in listening, growing, and innovating along the way to meet guest, member, customer and owner needs,” said Ludwig Bouldoukian, Regional Vice President, Development – Middle East and Africa.

“Today, we remain focused on expanding our global footprint and building our business based on where we can best extend care and make a positive impact on our guests and the communities in which we operate.

“With a strong pipeline of new openings and developments in the Middle East and across the globe, Hyatt continues to offer differentiated experiences that will cater to the growing demand for leisure destinations our guests are seeking as they get back to travel.”
