Sofitel has announced plans for a new property in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Representatives of the King Abdullah International Foundation and Sofitel were in Jeddah for the signing of a management contract, in the presence of HRH Prince Khalid ibn ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abdulaziz, chairman of the board of directors of the Foundation and Denis Hennequin, Accor chairman and chief executive officer.

The hotel is scheduled to open in 2015 and will be a mixed-use development which will also include the headquarters of the Foundation, a mosque and a convention center. Sofitel Riyadh will boast #approximately 400 rooms and suites, six food and beverage outlets, various meeting facilities, a swimming pool, a spa and additional recreational amenities.

This new project is major step for Sofitel, which confirms its enthusiasm for the Gulf region where four hotels are already operated, plus a future launch scheduled in Dubai in July 2013. “We believe that the Foundation’s humanitarian values and objectives are very well aligned with Accor’s strong commitment towards environment, local employment opportunities, talent development and blend between different cultures,” declared Denis Hennequin, Accor chairman and CEO.
