Langham Hospitality Group has inked a deal with the Advanced Hotels Company to manage The Langham, Jeddah – a luxury urban hotel in Saudi Arabia.
The new hotel is located within the downtown core directly across a new shopping complex and is slated to open in the summer of 2018. The agreement was signed in the presence of H.E. Mohammed A.

“We are delighted to introduce the Langham brand to Jeddah as we have been searching for the ideal location in the Kingdom to add to our portfolio. Said Robert Warman, chief executive officer of Langham Hospitality Group. “The creative design of the hotel’s façade and interiors along with the luxury facilities of The Langham, Jeddah, underlined by our legendary award-winning service, will provide an exceptional destination for our guests.”

Led by David T’Kint and his team at the Dubai office of the multiple award-winning interior design firm HBA, The Langham, Jeddah will feature classic yet elegantly contemporary furnishings – a stylistic homage to the brand’s heritage as one of the premier grand hotels in Europe. Each of the 238 well-appointed rooms and 39 suites is equipped with the Langham signature Blissful bed, motorised drapes and separate large-format rain showers.
