Set to open in 2021, the hotel will be completed once renovations have been finalised at Fursan Towers.

Located on King Fahd Road, the hotel will comprise more than 150 hotel rooms, eight meeting rooms, service facilities as well as commercial rental space, which will be financed by the fund manager.

The fund manager said it expected that the results would be “positive” on the fund, and will announce any significant developments at the time.

The news comes just days after Hilton agreed to open the “world’s largest Hilton Garden Inn” and adds to the hotel chain’s current pipeline of 34 hotels in Saudi Arabia.

The development is in line with the Saudi Arabian Government’s Vision 2030 and the goal of reaching 30 million visitors to the country.
