A new Radisson Hotel in Makkah - First Rezidor-property in the holy city of Islam

The Rezidor Hotel Group plans its first property in Makkah, Saudi-Arabia: The Al Diyafa Radisson Hotel will open its doors in 2010. Within walking distance of the Al Diyafa shopping mall and just three kilometres from the legendary Haram mosque, the first-class-hotel will offer 256 rooms, four restaurants, a separate male and female spa, six meeting rooms and a 1250 square metre ballroom.

“This is an important milestone for us to be present in the holiest city in Islam”, comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of The Rezidor Hotel Group. “The new hotel, a management agreement, is our seventh project in Saudi-Arabia – the country belongs to our major growth markets, and the whole Middle East is one of our most important regions.”

The Rezidor Hotel Group currently manages four Radisson hotels in Riyadh, Jeddah (2) and Yanbu. In addition, the company’s mid market Park Inn brand will be present in Riyadh and Al Khobar.
