The hotel will also offer versatile business and meeting facilities.
Panos Loupasis, market managing director for TMEA at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, said: “Ramada Encore by Wyndham Al Khobar Corniche embodies the brand’s ethos of contemporary comfort and warm hospitality. This latest opening marks an important step in our expansion in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where we recently reintroduced direct franchising and management rights for our Ramada brand and are investing in local resources to complement our growth. There is a significant need for high-quality mid-scale hotels in the Kingdom and we are committed to ensuring we make hotel travel more inclusive and less exclusive.”
Ramada Encore by Wyndham Al Khobar Corniche adds to Wyndham’s portfolio of 13 operational hotels in the country under the Wyndham Garden, Ramada, Ramada Encore, Howard Johnson, Hawthorn Suites and Super 8 by Wyndham brands. The latest opening in Saudi Arabia builds on Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ strong foothold across the Middle East and Africa, with almost 70 hotels and a development pipeline of more than 25 additional properties across the region.
