Mövenpick opens third hotel in Jeddah
Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah, a unique European-style property, marks the Swiss brand’s third conquest in one of Saudi Arabia’s fastest-growing cities.
The 228-room property is ideally located near the Al Harthy Exhibition Centre and Mall of Arabia, and just a 15-minute drive from King Abdulaziz International Airport.
The deal to manage Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah has been signed with AlTayyar Travel Group, a major player in the Middle East’s tourism industry and the only publicly-listed travel group in Saudi Arabia.
Group chief executive officer, Abdullah Aldawood, said Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts had been selected to operate the property due to its 'strong track record operating successful properties across Jeddah and Saudi Arabia'.
'We are therefore confident that our new project, Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah, will set new hospitality standards in this area of the city, catering well to its thriving business and leisure tourism industry,' he adds.
Hotel facilities include eight flexible meeting rooms featuring natural light and the latest AV equipment, an elegant Palladian-style ballroom capable of accommodating up to 600 guests, the Al Maha Health Club & Spa and an inviting rooftop swimming pool. There are three restaurants from which to choose, including all-day dining outlet Al Deira, the glamorous Al Moltaqa Café, and Al Zohoor Garden located next to the rooftop pool.
