We are thrilled for guests to experience this upscale hotel brand, which enables guests to focus on a work / life balance and find harmony in their travel experience.”

There are two onsite restaurants, the Lune all-day dining venue, and Kasbah Café, serving international fare and shisha. Meanwhile, events can be accommodated across 11 meeting rooms and an upcoming 1,800 sq m auditorium, and the hotel also features three outdoor pools, two indoor pools, separate ladies and men’s fitness studios, and a spa.

Christopher Pike, the hotel’s general manager, said: “With an ideal location next to the King Khalid International Airport and the perfect mix of rooms, duplex suites and villas, we can offer something for everyone. The entire hotel team and I look forward to creating unforgettable experiences for our guests delivering Radisson’s renowned ‘Yes I Can!’ service.”
