Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts has officially opened the Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah. The opening marks the group’s 11th hotel in Saudi Arabia.
The 228-room property, which marks the Swiss hospitality firm’s third hotel in Jeddah and 11th in the Kingdom, blends a classical interior design with a contemporary façade and the latest modern comforts.
Located near the Al Harthy Exhibition Centre and Mall of Arabia, the hotel is in close proximity to King Abdulaziz International Airport, with the hotel aiming to meet the needs of business, leisure and MICE-related travellers.
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 and 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.”
Hotel facilities include eight meeting rooms featuring natural light and the latest AV equipment, an elegant Palladian-style ballroom capable of accommodating up to 600 guests and the Al Maha Health Club and Spa.
“Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah introduces a new European-style hotel concept to the city, offering guests timeless elegance across every touch point, from its classical interior design to traditional cuisine, but executed with a distinct modern edge and complemented with the latest technology and amenities,” said Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and South Asia.
