It simultaneously supports the sector’s role in achieving the objectives of Vision 2030 which inspires us to provide the latest premium hospitality products and services.”

The resort will add value to what Jeddah has to offer as a major tourist destination on the Red Sea coast.”
Mark Willis, CEO of Accor India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey commented on the partnership, “Rixos Resort Jeddah will be a phenomenal attraction enriching hospitality and tourism services in Jeddah. This is Rixos’ first business project in the Kingdom, and we hope this will be the first of several other Rixos projects developed in collaboration with Dur kingdom-wide. Rixos Jeddah Resort will offer a premium hospitality experience, with its magical ambience, the luxurious stay it promises, its distinguished amenities and exciting leisure activities. This collaboration will strengthen Accor’s presence in the Kingdom, serving to meet the growing demand for top-of-the-line luxury hospitality in light of the initiatives and projects launched to augment Saudi’s tourism and entertainment sectors.”
