Yotel Oxagon Neom

The latest Yotel property to open, located in NEOM’s Oxagon project, will be within the city’s Research and Innovation district, slated to open its doors in 2025.

Scheduled to open in 2025, the YOTEL property will also be the first hotel to open in Oxagon. This opening also marks the launch of the brand in Saudi Arabia. The hotel’s location is at the heart of the integrated live-work-play Research and Innovation district of Oxagon with a dedicated R&I campus.

Strategically located on NEOM’s Red Sea coast, Oxagon is reimagining the traditional industrial city by developing multiple residential and business communities. Additional to the R&I district, the city will be home to a next generation port with a fully automated and integrated supply chain and logistics network.

Featuring 300 rooms, the hotel will showcase YOTEL’s latest features including the brand’s signature robotic concierge, motorized SmartBeds™, and fully integrated technologies which YOTEL is known for. Guests will also have access to Komyuniti, the brand’s signature multi-functional dining and co-working space, a 24-hour fitness centre, a Grab-and-Go Café, and meeting spaces.

Oxagon aims to create a new model for modern urbanism. It will be one of several cities and destinations within the NEOM development, all set to be powered by renewable energy sources, amplifying Saudi Arabia’s plan to sustainably diversify its economy, as part of its Vision 2030 strategy.

Oxagon’s ambition to house hospitality assets where innovative design, sustainability and technologies converge, echoes our core values at YOTEL. We understand that the Non-Stop traveller craves destinations that won’t slow them down, and Oxagon promises to be a unique destination where new tech-enabled hospitality experiences can be live-tested. It is an honour to be one of the first hotels to open within a city redefining industries through sustainable innovation.

Hubert Viriot, CEO of YOTEL

Oxagon’s hotel strategy is built around several pillars including technology - key for integration within a wider smart-city infrastructure. After a competitive selection process, YOTEL was the clear hotel brand of choice for the district, given our shared ambitions to focus on people-centric design, circularity and digital advancements.

Vishal Wanchoo, CEO of Oxagon

The new announcement signifies Yotel’s ambition to grow both management and franchised projects in the Middle East region, as part of its larger strategy to reach 50 hotels by 2025.
