IHG has announced that its Regent Hotels & Resorts brand will open its first property in the Middle East. The move comes following the signing of a management agreement with Almuhaysin Group.
Regent Jeddah is set to open in mid-2024 along the city’s waterfront on the Jeddah Corniche, opposite the Formula 1 track.
The hotel will boast close to 182 guestrooms and five penthouses spread across 29 floors.
Its additional amenities will include a 1,500 m² spa by Raison d’Etre, a 200 m² health club with an indoor and outdoor pools, three F&B options, and a lounge.
As part of the brand’s ambition to set a new standard for modern ultra-luxury travel, Regent is reinventing its model. Regent Jeddah will be one of the brand’s first new generation hotels to open globally.
IHG currently operates 39 hotels in Saudia Arabia, with a further 30 in its development pipeline looking forward to 2028.
Saudi Arabia is a priority market for IHG in the Middle East and the continual expansion of our global portfolio in the Kingdom demonstrates our commitment to Vision 2030. The opening of Regent Jeddah next year in collaboration with our esteemed partner, Almuhaysin Group, will bring a new era of luxury hospitality to the Kingdom for domestic and international guests, as well as business travellers who seek luxurious experiences during their stay. We are proud to introduce the iconic Regent brand that enjoys a global reputation for crafting the most refined luxury experiences for modern trendsetters. With its prime location and extraordinary facilities, Regent Jeddah is poised to become a landmark destination in the region.
