Diriyah Gate Development Authority has announced plans to open an Armani Hotel in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.

Located in the ancient city of Diriyah, this signature Armani Hotel will draw on the unique architecture and landscape of the area.

An inspiring locale

Armani Hotels & Resorts and Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) are collaborating on the creation of this new Armani Hotel in the Diriyah development, which is a part of Saudi Vision 2030, promising to become a cultural and lifestyle destination that’s inspired by the country’s heritage.

Emaar Hospitality Group is to manage the property. By staying here, guests will have an introduction to the 300-year-old site of Diriyah, which is located just 15 minutes from Riyadh’s centre, along with its UNESCO site At-Turaif, the valley and palm groves of Wadi Hanifah and pedestrian-centric Diriyah development.

When it reaches completion, this development will encompass 13 different districts home to museums and cultural institutions, fine dining restaurants, residences, hospitality, office space, retail and outdoor attractions.

Giorgio Armani said: “This is a pioneering project that was borne from rediscovering Saudi Arabia’s roots: a dialogue between history and the present that I find very fascinating. Armani Hotel Diriyah allows me to interpret my idea of lifestyle and hospitality in a particularly subtle and embracing way.”

“After celebrating the tenth anniversary of the opening of the Armani Hotels in Milan and Dubai, I am ready to take on this exciting new challenge. I am inspired by this initiative and delighted to be part of a project of such wide geographical and cultural scope.”

Jerry Inzerillo, group CEO of Diriyah Gate Development Authority, commented: “It is an honour to partner with Armani Hotels on this prestigious project. Their elegant and forward-thinking approach to modern hospitality will bring a new dynamic to Diriyah’s hospitality offering and bring with it an exciting guest experience to the Kingdom.”

“As we develop what will become one of the world’s great gathering places, rich in culture, history and authenticity, we are proud to partner with brands such as Armani who demonstrate such a timeless approach to hospitality.”

A design collaboration

As the third property in the Armani hotel portfolio, Armani Hotel Diriyah will represent a new take on the brand’s hospitality concept as it reflects its unique location.

This hotel is now being developed by Diriyah in partnership with Giorgio Armani and his in-house team of interior designers and architects to create a property that aligns with Saudi Arabia’s aesthetics and landscape.

In a position overlooking the development’s ultra-luxury hospitality and retail quarter, this hotel will house 70 luxurious rooms, along with two restaurants and a spa. Suites will have their own spa and pool.

This hotel offering will then be joined by 18 ultra-luxury Armani Branded Residences, which are to be designed and furnished by Armani with appealing features including landscaped terraces, rooftops and outdoor pools.

Diriyah Gate Development Authority anuncia sus planes de abrir un hotel Armani en Diriyah (Arabia Saudita).

Situado en la antigua ciudad de Diriyah, este emblemático Armani Hotel se inspirará en la arquitectura y el paisaje únicos de la zona.

Una locación inspiradora

Armani Hotels & Resorts y Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) colaboran en la creación de este nuevo hotel Armani en el desarrollo de Diriyah, que forma parte de la Saudi Vision 2030, y que promete convertirse en un destino cultural y de estilo de vida inspirado en el patrimonio del país.

Emaar Hospitality Group gestionará el establecimiento. Al alojarse aquí, los huéspedes podrán conocer la localidad Diriyah, de 300 años de antigüedad, situado a solo quince minutos del centro de Riad, junto con su patrimonio de la UNESCO At-Turaif, el valle y los palmerales de Wadi Hanifah y la urbanización Diriyah, centrada en los peatones.

Cuando esté terminada, esta urbanización abarcará trece distritos diferentes que albergarán museos e instituciones culturales, restaurantes de alta cocina, residencias, hostelería, oficinas, comercios y atracciones al aire libre.

Giorgio Armani comenta: «Este es un proyecto pionero que nace del redescubrimiento de las raíces de Arabia Saudita; un diálogo entre la historia y el presente que me parece muy fascinante. El Armani Hotel Diriyah me permite interpretar mi idea de estilo de vida y hospitalidad de una forma especialmente sutil y acogedora».

«Tras celebrar el décimo aniversario de la apertura de los hoteles Armani de Milán y Dubái, estoy preparado para asumir este nuevo y emocionante desafío. Estoy inspirado por esta iniciativa y encantado de formar parte de un proyecto de tan amplio alcance geográfico y cultural».

Jerry Inzerillo, director general del grupo Diriyah Gate Development Authority, comenta: «Es un honor asociarse con Armani Hotels en este prestigioso proyecto. Su enfoque elegante y vanguardista de la hotelería moderna aportará una nueva dinámica a la oferta hotelera de Diriyah y traerá consigo una experiencia emocionante para los huéspedes del Reino».

«A medida que desarrollamos lo que se convertirá en uno de los grandes lugares de conferencias del mundo, rico en cultura, historia y autenticidad, estamos orgullosos de asociarnos con marcas como Armani, que demuestran un enfoque tan intemporal de la hospitalidad».

Colaboración de diseño

Como tercera propiedad del portfolio de hoteles Armani, el Armani Hotel Diriyah representará una nueva visión del concepto de hospitalidad de la marca, ya que refleja su ubicación única.

Este hotel está siendo desarrollado por Diriyah en asociación con Giorgio Armani y su equipo interno de diseñadores de interiores y arquitectos para crear una propiedad que se alinea con la estética y el paisaje de Arabia Saudita.

En una posición con vistas al barrio de hostelería y comercio de ultralujo del barrio, este hotel albergará setenta lujosas habitaciones, además de dos restaurantes y un spa común. Las suites tendrán su propio spa y piscina.

A esta oferta hotelera se sumarán dieciocho residencias de lujo de la marca Armani, que serán diseñadas y amuebladas por Armani con atractivos elementos como terrazas con jardines, azoteas y piscinas exteriores.
