Armani Hotels & Resorts and Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) have signed the third Armani-branded property worldwide.
This new property, named Armani Hotel Diriyah, will be developed by Diriyah Gate in collaboration with Giorgio Armani and his in-house interior design team. The hotel will feature 70 rooms, two restaurants and a spa. It will be connected to 18 self-contained branded residences complete with outdoor pools, terraces and rooftops.
Armani Hotel Diriyah will be managed by Emaar Hospitality Group. The development of the city of Diriyah forms part of the Kingdom’s Saudi Vision 2030, and the construction of this hotel is part of this plan. Upon completion, Diriyah will comprise 13 districts featuring museums, dining restaurants, residences, hotels, office space, retail, and outdoor attractions.
This project allows me to interpret my idea of lifestyle and hospitality in a particularly subtle and embracing way. After celebrating the tenth anniversary of opening hotels in Milan and Dubai, I am ready to take on this exciting new challenge. I am inspired by this initiative and delighted to be part of a project of such wide geographical and cultural scope.
It is an honour to partner with Armani Hotels on this prestigious project.Their elegant and forward-thinking approach to modern hospitality will bring a new dynamic to Diriyah’s hospitality offering and bring with it an exciting guest experience to the Kingdom. […] As we develop what will become one of the world’s great gathering places, rich in culture, history and authenticity, we are proud to partner with brands such as Armani who demonstrate such a timeless approach to hospitality.
