EKONO by LEVA establishes its footprint in Saudi Arabia

LEVA Hotels has partnered with Ongoing Launch and Vision Ambassadors to reposition an existing 50-key boutique airport hotel in Jeddah. Previously named “Garden Palace Hotel” and located in Al Basateen Jeddah, LEVA aims to transform the property to cater to business travelers, tourists and locals. It will serve as the brand’s flagship hotel in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and as a focal point in its growing portfolio.

The three-star hotel will undergo soft modifications by the end of this year to create an atmosphere that embodies EKONO by LEVA’s key brand design elements. As a result, guests will be able to enjoy a dynamic and innovative lifestyle experience, which includes cutting-edge technologies integrated into smart, fun, efficient and trendy designs.

Speaking about the project, J.S. Anand, founder and CEO of LEVA Hotels & Resorts, said: “With the tourism industry rapidly developing in Saudi Arabia, LEVA plans to expand in key markets right across the kingdom. In addition, this is the first property under our umbrella to be branded as EKONO by LEVA in KSA, so we are excited about the future. We are also working on incorporating LEVA’s signature guest experience blueprint, advanced technologies and the automation we use at our flagship hotel in Dubai to support sustainability and ensure positive guest experiences.”
