JEDDAH – Marriott International has signed an agreement with Assila Investments to bring its Luxury Collection brand for the first time to Saudi Arabia.
Situated in the heart of Jeddah, Assila Hotel is anticipated to join The Luxury Collection’s portfolio of more than 100 world-renowned hotels and resorts in 2020.
“We are thrilled to have Marriott International manage the beautiful Assila Hotel, under the Luxury Collection brand,” said Bader Alissa, CEO of Assila Investments. “This only affirms Assila Hotel’s position as a premier luxury hotel in Jeddah.”
Assila Hotel features 210 guestrooms, including a 590 sqm Royal Suite, and 94 apartments.
