Radisson Blu Hotel, Dhahran to open this month

As part of its expansion across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group is opening the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dhahran this month. The upper-upscale, 74-suite hotel is Carlson Rezidor’s first in Dhahran and will welcome guests in mid-June. 

“Saudi Arabia is an important growth market for Carlson Rezidor because of its strategic location in the Middle East,” said Wolfgang M. Neumann, president and chief executive officer of the Rezidor Hotel Group. “With a rapidly growing population of nearly 30 million people, the Kingdom is the Gulf’s largest Arab country with a gross domestic product of more than SAR 2.5 trillion (EUR 500 billion), making it a highly lucrative market for the growth of our regional footprint. With the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dhahran, our portfolio rises to 18 hotels and 3,300 rooms in operation and under development, serving as a springboard for future developments in the area.” 

Catering to leisure and business travelers, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dhahran features an outdoor swimming pool, spa and fitness center. Two fully-equipped meeting rooms are available for a wide variety of events and social gatherings while a convenient lobby café and all-day dining restaurant offer plentiful dining options. Situated on Zaid Ibn Al Khattab Street in the heart of Dhahran, the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dhahran is ideally placed close to both Al Khobar city center and Dammam. The hotel is 40 minutes from King Fahad International Airport, five minutes from the picturesque Corniche and 1.25 miles from the bustling Mall of Dhahran.
