The Saudi Arabian hotel market is one of the strongest globally, with staggering metrics of excessive occupancy rates, strong revenue per vacant room (RevPar), and competitive average room costs.

This formidable endeavor will increase the overall available hotel rooms to nearly 450,000, with prominent plans like the futuristic Neom City spearheading this expansion.

In 2023, IHG Hotels & Resorts, a renowned worldwide hotel organization presenting 6,000 properties spanning 18 companies, has inked a franchise settlement for the forthcoming establishment of a Hotel Indigo in Oxagon, a coastal commercial city within the northwestern vicinity of Saudi Arabia, is about to benefit from this thrilling addition to its hospitality landscape.

By Hotel Type, the Saudi Arabia Hotel Market is split into High-End, Mid-Scale, and Budget.

In the dynamic Saudi Arabian hotel market landscape, the high-end motel section is rising as the epitome of increase and prosperity. This segment is experiencing an awesome surge, outpacing all others in expansion and development.

The rapid digitalization of the travel sector, coupled with consumers’ desire for convenient and transparent reserving processes, has driven the surge in online hotel reservations. Mobile apps and websites provide travelers with various options, opinions, and pricing, making finding accommodations that suit their preferences and budgets easier.

Moreover, the ongoing worldwide shift toward online and contactless transactions, extended by the COVID-19 pandemic, solidifies online booking systems’ dominance within the Saudi Arabian hotel industry. This trend is anticipated to maintain its upward trajectory, shaping the future of hotel bookings within the region.

Dynamic Jeddah Teeming with Hospitality

In Saudi Arabia, the Hotel industry is broken into Makkah, Riyadh, Madinah, Jeddah, Al Khobar and Dammam.

Attracting a wide variety of visitors, Jeddah offers various hotels, from luxury chains to boutiques. The sector experiences growth with new investments and renovations due to Jeddah’s strategic location alongside the Red Sea and rich historical and modern attractions. Supported by the Saudi government’s tourism commitment, Jeddah’s hotels are poised to extend, catering to a growing influx of site visitors.

Riyadh’s accommodations maintained sturdy occupancy rates and relatively higher daily rates, resulting in improved revenue per available room (RevPAR), reaching its highest since 2011. The Saudi capital has positioned itself as a distinguished venue for global occasions and conferences, aligning with the Kingdom’s aspiration to grow into a regional trade and commercial enterprise hub.
