Marriott International has signed an agreement with Assila Investments to bring its Luxury Collection brand to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the first time.

Marriott International, Inc. has signed an agreement with Assila Investments, which will see the company bring its Luxury Collection brand to the Kingdom for the first time, helping to further establish Marriott International in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia’s first Luxury Collection Hotel

The Assila Hotel is in the heart of Jeddah and is slated to join the Luxury Collection’s portfolio of more than 100 world-renowned hotels and resorts by 2020.

Adding the Assila Hotel to The Luxury Collection also helps establish Marriott’s growing luxury portfolio in the Middle East, where the company now has more than 30 luxury hotels, including The Ritz-Carlton Riyadh and The Ritz-Carlton Jeddah.

“We are thrilled to have Marriott International manage the beautiful Assila Hotel, under the Luxury Collection brand,” said Bader Alissa, CEO, Assila Investments. “This only affirms Assila Hotel’s position as a premier luxury hotel in Jeddah.”

“We are delighted to announce plans for the first Luxury Collection property in Saudi Arabia, in collaboration with Assila Investments,” said Alex Kyriakidis, President and Managing Director, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International.

“This deal signing supports our plans to further diversify our footprint in the Kingdom while enhancing our overall luxury portfolio in the region.”

Services and amenities at The Assila Hotel

This property features 210 guestrooms, among which are a 590-square-metre Royal Suite as well as 94 apartments. The Assila Hotel also boasts multiple food and beverage options, including a Café Lounge and Argentine and Mediterranean speciality restaurants.

In addition, the hotel includes a 248 square-meter ballroom as well as nine meeting rooms plus full-service recreational facilities such as a spa, fitness centres and squash courts.

Jeddah – a rapidly developing city

While the property’s features and amenities speak for themselves, its location is another winning feature.

The hotel is on Prince Mohammed Bin Abdulaziz (Tahlia) Street, on Jeddah’s main commercial and retail strip, nearby the Corniche and many of the city’s landmarks.

Its site is also within five kilometres of the planned ‘New Jeddah Downtown’ development, a mixed-use project on Jeddah’s five-million-square metre waterfront anticipated to launch in 2022. It is expected to include residential, cultural and retail spaces.


The Luxury Collection is a group of unique hotels and resorts offering exceptional service to an elite clientele.
