Kingdom’s hotel market set to go significantly upscale

Saudi Arabia: Wednesday, March 26 - 2008 @ 14:22

Already, the Arabian Gulf’s largest commercial and leisure destination is set to benefit from the opening of a property managed by one of the world’s premier hospitality brands, the Park Hyatt Jeddah.

On schedule to open to the public in September of this year, the property, which defines its offering as ‘contemporary luxury’, will make a significant impact on the upscale market currently on offer in Saudi’s second city, according to Munir Ahmed, Park Hyatt Jeddah’s newly-appointed general manager.

“Jeddah is a beautiful city with a rich and magnificent history, and Hyatt is proud to be
able to offer the community its global standard of excellence in hospitality, while adhering closely to the customs and traditions of its people,” said Ahmed.

The stunning 142-room Park Hyatt Jeddah sits on a 140,000 square meter Equestrian complex offering unrestricted access to the Red Sea. Situated just minutes away from the business district, this truly luxurious hotel enjoys a prime location nestled within uniquely landscaped gardens and exclusive spa recreational facilities blessed by the breeze of the Red Sea.

In addition, the hotel will feature the Park Hyatt Jeddah Spa and Wellness Center, easily the Middle East’s largest and most exclusive fitness and leisure facility complete with Clubhouse and separate male and female access areas.

Facilities for gentlemen will include an indoor 25-meter pool with a relaxation area, three outdoor tennis courts, two squash courts, gymnasium with the latest fitness technology, eight treatment rooms, an aqua medic pool, a hamman, and a tea and juice lounge.

In a separate building will be the gentlemen’s Club House Lounge that will include restaurants, a private majlis on the first floor, boardrooms, and a garden by the Red Sea for receptions for up to 300 persons.

Facilities for ladies include an indoor and outdoor swimming pool/relaxation area, underwater music, aqua medic pool, ten spa and balneo-therapy treatment rooms, beauty and aesthetic lounge, gymnasium with the latest fitness technology, a hammam, a dedicated medical and nutrition consulting area, children’s playground, a lounge, and an a-la-carte restaurant that offers indoor and outdoor dining.

“Because the Park Hyatt Jeddah is built on reclaimed land off the city’s southern corniche, its location is just ideal, within easy reach of the city’s commercial and financial districts, shopping, and entertainment. And we fully anticipate that many Hajj and Umrah pilgrims to Mecca will choose to stay with us upon arrival into Jeddah’s King Abdul Aziz International Airport,” added Ahmed.
