St. Regis and Edition hotels set to open in Saudi Arabia in 2022

The hospitality industry continues to grow, and many hotels around the Kingdom are preparing to open their doors for the first time.

And, two new properties slated to open in 2022 are The St. Regis Riyadh and The Jeddah EDITION.

There’s a lot to get excited about, but here’s what we know so far about these two luxury hotel brands.

The St. Regis Riyadh will be located at the entrance of the Diplomatic Quarter, close to the city’s embassies and central business district. It will be part of ‘Via Riyadh’, a luxury mixed-use development with retail and entertainment outlets, which is also one of the zones of Riyadh Season.

The 83-room hotel will include 23 suites, two signature restaurants, an outdoor pool, a fitness centre, and a spa. Expect the brand’s signature hallmarks and traditions, including its bespoke butler service and avant-garde style.

Meanwhile, the Jeddah EDITION will be situated on Jeddah’s corniche, within the Jeddah Yacht Club, and close to the new Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

This landmark property will tap the city’s vibrant culture and the social milieu of its location. Yes, there will be sumptuous accommodations – 63 guestrooms in total. But they will be paired with amenities that offer a sense of place, from a spa, a fitness centre, and a penthouse terrace.

A welcoming place to gather with family or new friends, the indoor and outdoor pools will blend seamlessly into the beautiful landscape. The Jeddah EDITION will also have interesting culinary experiences, from its signature restaurant to a lounge bar, while the rooftop bar will plate up sweeping views of the Red Sea.

“We are thrilled to work with Sela Sport Company to bring these exciting new projects to Riyadh and Jeddah,” said Jerome Briet, chief development officer of Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International. “These signings showcase both the growth of the tourism sector in Saudi Arabia and the strong interest in our portfolio of sought-after luxury brands.”

Marriott currently operates more than 30 hotels across ten brands in the Kingdom.
