This will be the brand’s first property in the Kingdom.
Saudi Arabia is upping its tourism game. With new visa policies and globally renowned events now taking place across the Kingdom, it’s quickly becoming the one-stop-shop for excitement and fun. As visitors pour in, comfy beds are a must. And while Saudi Arabia has some of the best hotels and resorts in the world, Marriott is bringing one of its biggest stars to the Kingdom. Brace yourselves, for Renaissance Hotels is making its grand entrance in Saudi Arabia. Known for its commitment to connecting guests with the local essence, the swanky Renaissance Riyadh Hotel will debut in 2025.
Nestled within the vibrant tapestry of Riyadh’s King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) and conveniently located near Riyadh International Airport, the Renaissance Riyadh Hotel is poised to redefine luxury living. This haven of elegance is slated to offer an impressive ensemble of 266 thoughtfully designed suites, creating a serene escape for both business travellers and vacationers. Satisfying your palate, the hotel boasts three enticing food and beverage outlets, ensuring a delightful culinary journey. When relaxation beckons, the spa, pool, and fitness centre provide the perfect refuge to unwind and rejuvenate.
But Renaissance is not the only Marriott brand making its way to the Kingdom in 2025. The hospitality giant is also bringing its Aloft Hotel and Courtyard by Marriott to the Holy City of Makkah. First up is Aloft Makkah Taysir, which is going to be the brand’s biggest hotel in the world. Located in the Taysir district and near the Holy Kaaba — ideal for pilgrims — this hotel boasts 1,000 guest rooms. It’ll also offer you guests to enjoy a relaxed stay bringing innovative technology and design to enhance your experience. Amenities such as gourmet goodies and fitness facilities will also be a part of this much-awaited property.
Coming in hot with all that timeless and classic Marriott style is the Courtyard by Marriott Makkah Kudai. This place will have 438 spacious guest rooms and inviting spaces that will make you feel right at home — plus a sprinkle of that legendary Marriott service that’ll give you all the royal feels. With a fitness centre as a part of the deal and a grab-and-go market at the property, your cravings and workout will be covered. All of this just for just two kilometres from the Grand Mosque entrance makes it a prime location as well.
