Swiss hospitality group Movenpick Hotels & Resorts will open its fourth Jeddah property in 2019.
The 300-guestroom Movenpick Hotel Heraa Jeddah is one of five new-builds the group will unveil in Saudi Arabia over the next four years.
Two of these are planned for Riyadh, one will be in Al Khobar and the other, Movenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah, in Jeddah.
Located on Prince Sultan Road, Movenpick Hotel Heraa Jeddah will include "several" food and drink outlets including two restaurants, a ballroom, seven meeting rooms, a health club with gym, and seven standalone villas.
Andreas Mattmuller, Movenpick's CCO in Middle East and Asia, said: "The hotel is just five minutes from Jeddah's King Abdulaziz International airport, which is currently undergoing a US$7.2 billion expansion to take its ultimate capacity to 80 million passengers annually."
The hotel is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019.
In May, Movenpick opened its first property in Bangkok (see news, May 20).
