In a recent exclusive interview with Hotelier Middle East, Vincent Miccolis, the regional GM for The Ascott Limited, has revealed that the hotel group will repurpose a former British Aerospace compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to include medium-to-long-stay Ascott Villas.

Miccolis said that the compound will be the first one in the region to contain Ascott Villas, that it is a good complement to the product, and an emerging trend.

Reportedly, the compound, which will open at the end of 2020, is quite close to Riyadh’s financial centre.
