Rezidor recently announced the Nofa Resort and Club, a luxury private member’s club located outside Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.
The existing property with 57 luxury villas will join the group in Q3 2016 and will be operated as a members-only resort.
It is the newest addition to Rezidor’s expanding portfolio in Saudi Arabia that now features 27 hotels with over 5,200 rooms in operation or under development.
“The Nofa Resort and Club will strengthen our position in the Kingdom,” said Wolfgang M Neumann, president and CEO of Rezidor. “As the market in Saudi Arabia matures, niche offers such as members-only resorts become increasingly popular and attract an influential clientele,” said Elie Younes, executive vice president and chief development officer of Rezidor.
The resort comprises 57 villas, two family-dining restaurants, coffee lounge and a juice bar. Business and leisure facilities include meeting rooms, large entertainment centre, an equestrian centre, a golf resort, a palm and fruit orchard, and a safari zone. The property also features a banquet hall that will host large, high profile conferences, conventions, exhibitions, weddings and other events of more than 800 people.
