Hotel operator says four-star Swiss-Belhotel Al Khobar is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2016
Swiss-Belhotel International has signed an agreement to run a four-star hotel in Al Khobar which is expected to start operating by the end of this year.
The Swiss-Belhotel Al Khobar hotel will be the company's first property in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, a statement said.
Swiss-Belhotel International chairman and president Gavin M Faull said: "We are excited as we set foot in Al Khobar, one of Saudi Arabia's top business and tourist destinations, well-known for its fair share of regional and international companies and the beautiful expanse of the Corniche, the Golden Belt Walk, Al-Rashid Mall and many other attractions."
Swiss-Belhotel Al Khobar, the operator's third property in Saudi Arabia after planned hotels in Makkah and Riyadh, will have 100 rooms and two food and beverage outlets as well as shops for rental, the statement added.
Mohamed Al Malki, the property owner, said: "I'm honoured to work with Swiss-Belhotel International and I am totally confident that the new property will be one of the main highlights in the pearl of Saudi, Al Khobar city."
