UAE's Rotana launches first Saudi hotel under new deal

UAE-based hotel operator Rotana and Al Diyar United have announced the launch of Centro Salama Jeddah, the first hotel project to be funded and developed in partnership with the Saudi-based real estate developer.

The new hotel, which is the second under the Centro by Rotana brand in Jeddah and the third in the kingdom, features 189 rooms and suites.

Al Diyar United Company CEO, Muaz Yassine Kadi, said the success of this project demonstrates the benefits of the partnership between Al Diyar United Company and Rotana Group.

“This project confirms our position as one of the leading real estate developers in the Kingdom, where we have other projects across many sectors. Now, we look forward to continuing our partnership with Rotana by establishing additional developments in the near future,” he added.

Rotana chairman, Nasser Al Nowais, said: “We are proud to play in a role in the kingdom’s growth and contribute to the realization of the ambitious Vision 2030. In addition, Rotana is empowering Saudi nationals by hiring, training and developing national talent within different departments across all our hotels in the kingdom.”

Centro Salama Jeddah is the 10th hotel launched under the Centro by Rotana brand in the region. It is the group’s fifth hotel in the kingdom, all of which supply the Saudi hospitality market with more than 1,300 hotel units.

Three new hotels are currently under development in the country, which will add a further 780 rooms.

Centro Salama Jeddah also offers seven meeting rooms, health club, a pool for hotel guests, and two restaurants.
