Ignace Bauwens, Regional Vice President Middle East and Africa at Wyndham Hotel Group said, “Ramada is one of the most recognised hotel brands in the world, and is a preferred choice for both business and leisure travellers globally. Continuing to grow the Ramada brand in Saudi Arabia, together in partnership with Concept Towers Real Estate Limited and Riyada International Hotels & Resorts, will further enhance our reach in this fast-growing market, as well as across the entire Middle East region.”
Ramada Riyadh King Fahd Road is expected to open in 2020, and will be located in close proximity to a number of leading banks, commercial offices, trading companies and wholesale entities, which will serve growing demand from business travellers to Riyadh. The hotel’s location will also appeal to tourists looking to visit several nearby attractions, such as the National Museum, Al Murabba Palace, and King Abdul Aziz Public Library, among others.
Concept Towers Real Estate Limited has appointed Riyada International Hotels & Resorts to manage the hotel. Concept Towers Real Estate Limited was founded in 2017.

Ramada has a global reputation for delivering meaningful hospitality, and guests opt for the brand because of the high-standards of accommodation and warm welcome they will experience.”
Muhammad Al Amir, Managing Director of Riyada International Hotels & Resorts added, “Saudi Arabia is redefining its tourism and hospitality sectors under Saudi Vision 2030, which will only increase demand for internationally recognised hotel brands throughout the Kingdom. We believe there is tremendous potential for Ramada to grow across the entire country, and are excited to be working with the Adul Rahman family and Concept Towers Real Estate to bring Ramada to King Fahd Road in central Riyadh. ”
Ramada Riyadh King Fahd Road will have 189 guest rooms, including 84 suites and 105 standard rooms. Every aspect of the hotel has been thoughtfully planned, with amenities tailored for both business and leisure guests. To meet the requirements of businesses in the region, the hotel will have assured parking and over 200 square metres of meeting space, while leisure and wellness amenities include an indoor pool, spa and a modern gym. The hotel will have three food and beverage outlets, including an all-day restaurant, lobby lounge and a cafe. Interiors will be elegantly designed and reflect the “pops of red” for which the Ramada brand has become famous.
