The Chedi Wadi Safari

General Hotel Management (GHM) is ready to launch The Chedi brand in Saudi Arabia through the signature of The Chedi Wadi Safari in Diriyah.

The Chedi and 15 other hotel brands have been announced in Diriyah and Wadi Safari. The project is spearheaded by Diriyah Gate Developments Authority (DGDA) in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.

Diriyah is currently in its first phase of construction. The 14 kilometre-square project will include hotels, museums, galleries and more, and is expected to attract over 27 million visitors annually.

The aim of this ambitious project is to “position this iconic location as the modern epicentre of historical and cultural experiences and one of the greatest gathering places in the world” according to Jerry Inzerillo, CEO of Diriyah Gate Developments Authority.

We are honoured to be part of this visionary project. Wadi Safar is famous for its unspoiled landscape and rich cultural traditions. Through The Chedi Wadi Safar, we look forward to exhibiting elegance and timeless authenticity imbued with our signature hallmark of A Style to Remember to all who visit in Diriyah, while staying respectful to the unique beauty of this sacred place.

Tommy Lai, CEO of General Hotel Management

We have chosen each hotel brand with care ensuring our discerning guests are welcomed with their distinctive avant-garde design, world-class amenities, and unmatched customer service standards. The Chedi Wadi Safar’s serene and tranquil environment will pay a fitting tribute to the majestic Wadi Safar by delivering its renowned authentic and unrivalled approach to hospitality. We are extremely happy to welcome The Chedi to Diriyah.
