Assila, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Jeddah - Jeddah, Saudi Arabia [MASTER THREAD]

Looks like the Assila Hotel, formerly part of the Rocco Forte Collection, will be joining The Luxury Collection in 2020, debuting the brand in Saudi Arabia. Good to have more options in the city as the awful Sheraton renovates, Le Mridien seems to struggle with being dowdy and the Marriott wraps up its reconstruction.

Press release from Hotelier Middle East below; I'm sure the official Marriott one isn't far behind.

Hospitality giant Marriott International will be introducing its Luxury Collection in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia after it signed an agreement with Assila Investments to launch the Assila Hotel.

The property is expected to join The Luxury Collections portfolio of more than 100 hotels and resorts in 2020.

Assila Hotel features 210 guestrooms, including a royal suite, and 94 apartments. It comprises multiple food and beverage venues, including a Caf Lounge and Argentinian and Mediterranean specialty restaurants.

Speaking about the agreement, Bader Alissa, CEO, Assila Investments said: We are thrilled to have Marriott International manage the beautiful Assila Hotel, under the Luxury Collection brand. This only affirms Assila Hotels position as a premier luxury hotel in Jeddah.

The hotel also includes a ballroom and nine meeting rooms, as well as full-service recreational facilities such as a spa, fitness centre and squash courts.

This deal signing supports our plans to further diversify our footprint in the Kingdom while enhancing our overall luxury portfolio in the region, Alex Kyriakidis, president and managing director, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International said.

The hotel is situated close to planned New Jeddah Downtown development, a mixed-used project on Jeddahs five million square metre waterfront anticipated to launch in 2022.

Any stays here? If so, how is it? Generally I'm a fan of Luxury Collection hotels but the photos here seem so-so and seems like a reflag rather than new construction?! How does it compare to Ritz or Park Hyatt?

I'm traveling with family on semi-business but looking more for a leisure experience. Suggestiobs appreciated - I'm globalist and titanium. Thanks.

Stayed here last year, solid property with good upgrades. Received a corner suite which was appreciated. The Ritz is also good, but if the price is good and you're looking for upgrades, I would choose this property.

Thanks. Hopefully we will like like you did. First time to Saudi. I've got 3 nights here then 6 nights at Park Haytt in exec suite. Hopefully will get suite here too like you did. I stay away from Ritzes because of lack of free breakfast

Also headed to ST Regis Riyadh. Hopefully will get a suite there too. I'm using points for all. Redemption values incredible

I'm so happy - they treated me as it was still SPG days. It almost brought me to tears. I have not had a welcome and service like this since the merger.

The breakfast here is just fabulous. Every kind of berry you can imagine, as well as pomegranate. Very happy here. Gym is also excellent with 50kgs dumbbells. Had a great workout which is unusual in hotel gymd

I'm moving to Park Hyatt - hopefully it'll be as nice
