The Langham Coming to Saudi Arabia

Langham Hospitality Group has signed a management agreement with the Diriyah Gate Development Authority (DGDA) for The Langham in Diriyah, located 15 minutes from downtown Riyadh in Saudi Arabia.

Brett Butcher, CEO, Langham Hospitality Group said: “The year 2026 will be a momentous year in Langham Hospitality Group’s strategic growth plans as we officially open in two landmark locations with The Langham, Venice on the European continent and in the Middle East with The Langham, Diriyah,” he added.

The Langham, Diriyah is located on Diriyah’s main boulevard, which will be home to luxury retailers. Nearby attractions include At-Turaif, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Wadi Safar with its eco-tourism experiences. The hotel will have 200 rooms and suites. Guests can also enjoy the Langham Club Lounge and an art gallery experience curated throughout the hotel. It will add two new dining options complementing the planned luxury destination dining district of Bujairi Terrace, including the first Middle Eastern outpost of the three-Michelin-star Cantonese restaurant, T’ang Court.

The Langham’s signature afternoon tea will also be offered. New tea traditions will be created, as Middle Eastern tea and coffee culture are honored, amidst patisserie and brunch fare. As well, the first international outpost of The Langham, London’s cooking school, Sauce, will also make its debut, offering an immersive experience for culinary enthusiasts.

On the wellness side, The Langham Chuan Spa is a holistic concept that embraces the healing philosophies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Guests will also be able to cool off and relax at the men’s or women’s pool decks.

The 300-year-old site of Diriyah is located within Riyadh province, just 15 minutes north-west of downtown Riyadh. It is recognized as the symbolic center of inspiration for the generations of leaders that have led the Kingdom since the foundation of the First Saudi State in 1727. The Diriyah project, which is a part of the "Saudi Vision 2030," will pay ode to Saudi Arabia’s rich history, while catering to leisure and business travelers from across the globe.

Diriyah is a 25-minute drive from King Khalid International Airport and 10 minutes from the city’s financial district.
