The hotel will be operated by Swiss International’s partner in the Middle-East, Hospitality Development Group (also known as Swiss International Middle-East), based in Dammam.

Chairman and CEO, Swiss Internaional, Henri Kennedie remarked: “It is overwhelming to see the Swiss International brand grow in the country. This exemplifies the commitment and cooperation from our partners. We are pleased to have collaborated with Al Shiha Group and we look forward to work on the future developments which include more hotels in Saudi Arabia in the near future.”

CEO, Swiss International Middle East, Naji Al Shiha also noted: “From the very onset of the partnership with Swiss International, we were confident and positive about this alliance and its contribution roles.
