Brussels, April 2005 – Radisson SAS Hotels and Resorts, the first class brand of the leading hospitality company Rezidor SAS Hospitality, is set to manage a seventh property in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - the Radisson SAS Royal Suite Hotel in Jeddah, featuring 57 luxury suites.  The hotel currently under construction will welcome its first guests in June.

Rezidor SAS will manage and operate the Radisson SAS Royal Suite Hotel on behalf of the owner, Saudi Amjad Holding Company chaired by Sheikh Dr. Abdul Wahed Al Obaid, one of Saudi Arabia’s largest real estate investment and development companies.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, all with their own distinct style in interior decor, feature spacious lounges, a fully-equipped kitchen and a dining area.

The hotel also features a state-of-the-art health club with the latest sports equipment, steam room, Jacuzzi, sauna and a swimming pool.

The property is situated in the heart of the city, on the main highway to Madinah. The property is just 15 minutes from the bustling King Abdul Aziz International Airport, and a short walk from the city’s main shopping area, Al Tahliya.  Those with a passion for the city’s history are only five minutes away from the old town of Jeddah.
