IHG to bring Hotel Indigo brand to the Saudi capital

Hotel Indigo Riyadh King Abdallah Road is set to open its doors in March 2025 

Expanding its presence in the capital city of Saudi Arabia, IHG Hotels & Resorts has announced the signing of Hotel Indigo Riyadh King Abdallah Road. This development marks the first hotel to be signed under the Master Development Agreement (MDA) between IHG and RIVA Development Company via its wholly-owned subsidiary RIVA Hospitality for Hotel Services Company.

This addition to the IHG portfolio will have Riyadh’s cultural influences embedded in its DNA through a visionary design that captures the historical charm of local heritage and influences of nearby modern architecture.

Hotel Indigo Riyadh King Abdallah Road will feature 228 design-led rooms, two dining options, a pool and a fitness centre. In addition, the hotel will offer 353sqm of meeting and events space to cater to the demands of business travellers visiting Saudi Arabia’s capital city.

Commenting on the announcement, IHG managing director of India, Middle East & Africa  Haitham Mattar said: “We’re pleased to announce the signing of a new Hotel Indigo in Saudi Arabia in partnership with RIVA Development Company, aligned to our robust expansion plans in the Kingdom over the coming years. As a result of the Saudi Tourism Development Strategy, there will be a rising wave of travellers coming to Saudi Arabia and seeking differentiated travel, and an increasing demand for hotels that offer authentic and refreshingly local experiences.”

Established in 2004, Hotel Indigo now has a presence in more than 20 countries with over 120 hotels, and over 100 hotels in the pipeline. Across India, Middle East and Africa, IHG has already opened Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown, its first Hotel Indigo in the region, in 2020, and the brand’s growing pipeline includes properties in Doha and Oman.
