Millennium Hotels & Resorts MEA to operate 25 hotels in Saudi Arabia by 2025

Millennium Hotels & Resorts MEA has revealed ambitious plans to operate 25 hotels in Saudi Arabia by 2025.

The group currently operates nine hotels across Riyadh, Makkah, Madinah and Hail and has seven hotels under development in Makkah, Madinah, Jeddah, Jizan and Tabouk.

“Most hotel chains target the primary cities of Riyadh, Jeddah, Madinah and Makkah for expansion, but having operated in Saudi Arabia for five years, we have identified opportunities beyond these markets, in line with Vision 2030 and the phenomenal growth of the country’s tourism and hospitality industry,” said Kevork Deldelian, who was recently promoted to chief executive officer, Millennium Hotels and Resorts MEA.

The company is also expanding its TooMooH programme, which trains and develops Saudi Nationals to become hospitality industry leaders of the future.

Millennium Hotels and Resorts has operated in the Middle East since 2002. Most recently, global benchmarking specialist STR ranked the brand number one out of 16 global hotel brands for both Middle East supply (with 11,186 rooms in operation) and pipeline (with 7,251 rooms under construction).
