Yesterday Radisson Blu announced the opening of Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Jeddah and its third hotel in the city. The hotel is operated by Rezidor, a member of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, and the opening strengthens its constantly growing portfolio in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is a dedicated focus country for Rezidor: the group now operates nine hotels with more than 1,400 rooms in the Kingdom, according to a press release.
Situated on King Abdullah Road in one of the city’s most vibrant districts, the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Jeddah sits close to many businesses and two popular shopping malls, Al Andalus and Al Salam. The hotel’s 112 rooms and suites are stylish and contemporary, and offer signature services such as free high speed internet access. Thoughtfully designed work desks, satellite televisions and large beds all combine to provide an experience that is truly reflective of the needs of today’s traveller. The hotel’s suites are the premier accommodation choice in Jeddah, containing their own separate bedroom and lounge area.
The hotel’s all-day dining outlet, Al Liwan, is ideal for casual dining with the family or colleagues, offering a choice of fresh and flavourful buffet-style dishes. The international cuisine features popular dishes with local inspirations and for those just looking to catch up with friends over a sociable coffee, the Lounge Café is friendly and welcoming. The hotel’s outdoor pool area is bright and sunny, perfect for a quick swim after work or for relaxing and spending time with the family, while the Technogym-equipped fitness center means you don’t have to go far to stay fit and healthy during your stay.
“With its prime location, the Radisson Blu Plaza is a welcome addition to the growing hospitality market in Jeddah, and we are delighted to be flying the Radisson Blu flag at this new hotel. We have a first class team in place and an unqualified desire to make this newly rebranded property a huge success,” says Basel Talal, District Director Saudi Arabia.
“Jeddah continues to be an important city for domestic tourism in Saudi Arabia,” Mark Willis, Area Vice President Middle East and Turkey at Rezidor, says. “Our primary concern is to maintain the high standards and quality reputation we have established wherever we have our hotels and I am confident that the new Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Jeddah will complement our growth in the Kingdom and become a bastion of supreme hotel service and guest satisfaction.
For business, for leisure, for pleasure – or a combination of all three, the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Jeddah will leave all its guests with a memorable stay in an iconic, stylish and sophisticated way.
