Hyatt has opened its first hotel in Saudi Arabia. The Park Hyatt Jeddah – Marina Club and Spa is set among landscaped gardens on the Corniche of Jeddah in the very heart of the city, within the esteemed Al Hamra District at the Equestrian Club of Jeddah, and just minutes away from the central business district.
The commercial and financial districts, as well as the main shopping and entertainment areas of Jeddah are nearby, making the Park Hyatt Jeddah an ideal launching point from which visitors can conduct business or explore the city.
The multi-faceted resort is a remarkable engineering feat that reclaimed prime waterfront land from the Red Sea. The 34.5-acre (140,000 square meter) complex overlooks sweeping views of the sea and the world-famous King Fahd fountain with its more than 1,000-foot-high (312 meters) plume of water.
Park Hyatt Jeddah is an intimate and residential-style hotel where French interior designer Gilles Quiffet and architect Patrice Hart fashioned rooms that fuse a sleek European style with Arab-Andalusian architecture. The gardens and striking interior design create a haven of understated elegance.
The surrounding resort complex will feature 2.5-acres (10,000 square meters) of spa and wellness facilities, the Lazurde Meetings & Events Centre, a yacht marina, as well as a variety of innovative restaurants and stylish lounges.
The 142 spacious guestrooms, including 15 suites, feature home comforts combined with business and entertainment gadgetry. Guestrooms are generously sized measuring 430 square feet (40 square meters) while the suites range from 860 square feet to more than 2,100 square feet (80 to 200 square meters). Lavish bathrooms offer indulgences such as deep-soaking baths and rain showers. Additionally, a majority of the rooms enjoy unrestricted views of the sea.
Opening soon, the Lazurde Meetings & Events Centre will feature 26,000 square feet (2,500 square meters) of meeting and banquet facilities adjacent to Park Hyatt Jeddah.
The Lazurde Centre is accessible by a dedicated entrance and will host wedding parties, product launches, corporate meetings and conferences for up to 800 guests. The 8,100-square-foot (756 square-meter) Ballroom can be divided into three separate spaces, and additionally, the exclusive Palm Courtyard is able to accommodate up to 900 guests for outdoor events by the Red Sea.
In addition to a wide selection of F&B outlets, the hotel will also feature some Non-Hyatt managed facilities such as the Commercial Gallery which will host prestigious boutiques and a Marina that can berth 140 yachts of 26 to 82 feet (8 to 25 meters) in length. The marina will offer a main quay, a floating walkway, secondary pontoons, boarding facilities and fueling stations. Diving and sailing facilities may be added in the future.
Located just 30 minutes away from the King Abdullaziz International Airport, Park Hyatt Jeddah is a ideal for stopovers. Mecca is a 45-minute drive from the hotel.
