City overview: 9,000 new hotel rooms earmarked for Jeddah [Infographic]
The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database reveals that Jeddah’s hotel market will grow significantly in the coming years, with a raft of four- and five-star schemes on the way.
In the next few years, Jeddah will see 36 hotel schemes with 8,837 keys open their doors, our researchers report. We find out more about the Saudi Arabian city’s development pipeline – and take an in-depth look at its most exciting projects.
Jeddah’s hotel openings by year
Just three projects and 814 rooms are due to be completed before the end of 2021, the data suggests.
By contrast, 2022 will be the city’s busiest year overall, with 14 launches set to bring a total of 3,414 keys into play. In 2023, another nine hotels with 1,826 rooms will go live. And for 2024 and beyond, ten projects and 2,783 keys have already been pencilled in.
Of the 36 hotel projects that we’re currently tracking, 20 will be in the four-star category. The other 16 will be in the luxury five-star segment.
