Kerzner International, which through its subsidiaries, is a leading international developer and operator of destination resorts and luxury hotels, has entered into an agreement with Al Khozama Management Company, an award-winning Saudi developer and owner of luxury hotels, in partnership with Saudi Oger, to develop and operate a new One&Only resort in Jeddah on the Red Sea.
With approximately 150 luxurious guest rooms, suites and villas, a prestigious One&Only residential component, world-class dining and retail options, plus a health spa, the resort is set to become a destination for both business and leisure.
The property will be strategically located in Obhur, north of Jeddah and will boast extensive meeting facilities, creating a new epicentre for business in the city.
The 95,000 SQM resort is located less than 30 minutes from King Abdulaziz International Airport and will command an enviable 230 metres of beachfront.
This will be One&Only’s first resort in Saudi.
“I am thrilled we are able to partner with Al Khozama Management Company and Saudi Oger to develop this world-class destination.
“Jeddah is the perfect location for the first One&Only experience in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“The beachfront location is remarkable and I am very confident the resort will be well received by our many loyal One&Only guests and new guests alike,” said Alan Leibman, chief executive, Kerzner International.
Like all properties within the One&Only and Al Khozama collections, One&Only Jeddah will place an emphasis on privacy while evoking a ‘sense of place’, showcasing the country’s rich history and reflecting the local culture with a design appeal to attract the contemporary traveller seeking ultimate luxury.
As with all One&Only properties, this resort will offer innovative programming for families with children whilst carefully preserving space for adults only as well.
Guests will also have access to a host of unique sporting and entertainment facilities on-site.
The synergies between One&Only Resorts and Al Khozama developments lie in both being conceived as hallmarks of excellence.
Set in some of the most beautiful locations in the world, each award-winning resort offers guests a distinctive style and personality borne of its local culture, a genuine hospitality and a lively energy that is unparalleled.
