Armani Hotel to Debut in Saudi Arabia

Armani Hotels & Resorts and Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) have plans for a signature Armani Hotel to be built in the city of Diriyah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With resemblance to Armani Hotels & Resorts’ current hotels in Dubai and Milan, the property will be managed by Emaar Hospitality Group.

The third Armani property globally, Armani Hotel Diriyah will include 70 rooms, two restaurants and a spa, with suites having their own spa and a swimming pool, offering a range of wellness, hospitality and relaxation experiences. The hotel is connected to approximately 18 exclusive self-contained ultra-luxury Armani Branded Residences—designed and furnished by Armani—with spacious interiors and outdoor pools, landscaped terraces and rooftops.

According to Giorgio Armani, “This is a pioneering project that was borne from rediscovering Saudi Arabia’s roots: A dialogue between history and the present that I find very fascinating. Armani Hotel Diriyah allows me to interpret my idea of lifestyle and hospitality in a particularly subtle and embracing way. After celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Armani Hotels in Milan and Dubai, I am ready to take on this exciting new challenge. I am inspired by this initiative and delighted to be part of a project of such wide geographical and cultural scope.”

A 300-year-old site, Diriyah is located 15 minutes from Riyadh. It is the birthplace of the Kingdom and the capital of the first Saudi State. The area, home to At-Turaif and Wadi Hanifah, will soon include the Diriyah development. Upon completion, Diriyah will comprise 13 districts inclusive of museums, cultural institutions, fine dining, residences, hospitality offerings, office space, retail, and outdoor attractions. The development is a key driver of the Kingdom’s Saudi Vision 2030.

No planned opening date has been set yet.
