Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts today opened the doors to the Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah, a unique European-style property in one of Saudi Arabia’s fastest-growing cities.
The 228-room property marks the Swiss hospitality firm’s third hotel in Jeddah and 11th in the Kingdom.
Ideally located near to both the Al Harthy Exhibition Centre and Mall of Arabia, and a 15-minute drive from King Abdulaziz International Airport, the five-star hotel aims to meet the diverse needs of business, leisure and MICE-related travellers.
The deal to manage Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah has been signed with AlTayyar Travel Group.
Group CEO, Abdullah Aldawood, said Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts had been selected to operate the property due to its ‘strong track record operating successful properties across Jeddah and Saudi Arabia’.
“We are therefore confident that our new project, Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah, will set new hospitality standards in this area of the city, catering well to its thriving business and leisure tourism industry,” he added.
Hotel facilities include eight flexible meeting rooms featuring natural light and the latest AV equipment, an elegant Palladian-style ballroom capable of accommodating up to 600 guests, the Al Maha Health Club & Spa and an inviting rooftop swimming pool.
“Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah introduces a new European-style hotel concept to the city, offering guests timeless elegance across every touch point, from its classical interior design to traditional cuisine, but executed with a distinct modern edge and complemented with the latest technology and amenities,” said chief operating officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and South Asia, Andreas Mattmüller.
There are three restaurants from which to choose, including all-day dining outlet Al Deira, the glamorous Al Moltaqa Café, and Al Zohoor Garden located next to the rooftop pool.
To celebrate the opening of Mövenpick Hotel City Star Jeddah, the property is offering a 25 per cent discount on reserved room prices.
