Mövenpick inks hotel & appartment deal in Jeddah
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has signed an agreement with Hadia Abdul Latif Jameel Group to manage the 164-unit property
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts (MHR) has revealed plans to open its first hotel and apartment property in Jeddah in 2017.
The Swiss hospitality firm has signed an agreement with Hadia Abdul Latif Jameel Group to manage the 164-unit Mövenpick Hotel & Apartments Al Tahlia Jeddah.
Located on Hail Street, the hotel will be within close proximity to Jeddah's major commercial, financial, consular and shopping districts.
The property, which is part of a mixed-use development, will feature predominantly suites as well as dining facilities, a gym, two spa treatment rooms and four meeting rooms.
Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Middle East and South Asia, said: "It's a flexible hotel and apartment model that caters to both short and long-stay clients, capitalising on the gap in the market for branded extended-stay accommodation."
With three properties in the pipeline, MHR will take its total number of keys in Jeddah to 923 across five hotels by 2018.
Upcoming projects include Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah, opening this year, Mövenpick Residences Al Khobar (2017), Mövenpick Hotel Financial District Riyadh (2017) and Mövenpick Hotel Heraa Jeddah (2018).
