Elaf Group to open new 5-star hotel

Launch of a new hotel is poised to help enhance its leading role in Saudi Arabia’s booming tourism and hospitality segment

July 2017

The Elaf Group of Companies, a Sedco Holding Group company and a leading provider of travel, tourism and hospitality services, announced its plans to open its latest five-star hotel in Jeddah.

The latest addition to Elaf Group’s growing portfolio of hotels is part of its recent implementation of a strategic expansion initiative aimed at further reinforcing its leading presence in Saudi Arabia’s booming tourism and hospitality segment.

The initiative is in line with the goals and objectives of Saudi Vision 2030 to support the national economy and to promote tourism, particularly tourism for religious purposes, as a key contributor in the efforts to achieve a non-oil economy, the company said in a statement.

The opening of a new hotel in Jeddah proves to be both timely and strategic as a recent report released by TopHotelProjects entitled ‘The 2017 Saudi Arabia Hotel Construction Overview Report’ shows that the kingdom’s capital is now in preparation to add 48 new properties.

The report also mentioned that Riyadh leads the hotel boom, followed by Jeddah. To date, there are 170 hotels and 60,395 rooms across various stages of development in Saudi Arabia.

Ziyad Bin Mahfouz, CEO, Elaf Group, said: “We are excited to announce the coming opening of our new five-star hotel in Jeddah, which is part of our ongoing move to strengthen our presence in the kingdom and the rest of the region.
“The new hotel is expected to help address the demand for more hotel rooms in Jeddah, which clearly demonstrates the country’s rapidly thriving tourism industry – ably reflected in its continuous year-on-year (YoY) growth.

“Rest assured, we remain steadfast in our commitment to provide the highest quality of services to offer an unforgettable experience in our hotel and exemplary service to our guests.”
