IHG expands lifestyle portfolio in Saudi Arabia, with Hotel Indigo Jeddah

The signing comes a year after the brand’s entry into the Kingdom.

IHG® Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has announced the signing of a Management Agreement with Saudi Investment Group and Marketing Co (SIGMAC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Ghazzawi Group, for its second Hotel Indigo in Jeddah. Opening in Q1 2028, Hotel Indigo Jeddah will comprise of 267 hotel rooms and 173 serviced apartments. The signing which took place at the Future Hospitality Summit (FHS) in Dubai comes as part of IHG’s continued expansion in the region and in the Saudi Arabian hospitality market, in line with Vision 2030.

The new hotel’s arrival into the cultural and historical center of the country underscores IHG’s strong lifestyle proposition and readiness to cater to the future demand from various guest profiles visiting the country. Staying true to Hotel Indigo’s brand hallmarks, the hotel will have a distinctive personality, drawing inspiration from its culturally diverse location, and from the places, people and ideas that surround it.

The hotel will be developed as part of the SIGMAC mixed use development on Prince Sultan Road. The development will become one of the most iconic mixed-use destinations in Jeddah with a premium hotel, residential, offices, retail and entertainment facilities. Following the Saudi government’s investment into Jeddah under Vision 2030 — through the redevelopment of waterfront projects, and boosting of airport and high-speed train connectivity, the hotel will be an ideal destination for domestic visitors. Moreover, Jeddah being a crucial link between the Holy cities, the hotel will provide guests access to Madinah and Makkah.

In addition to aesthetically designed rooms, the hotel will feature a neighborhood café, lobby lounge, health club and swimming pool. Additionally, guests on business will have access to meeting rooms and printing facilities.

We look forward to benefiting from both IHG’s global experience and expertise in the industry, but even more importantly, their knowledge of our market through their long standing presence in KSA. When we open our doors in Q1 2028, we plan to offer our guests the unique experience of a Hotel Indigo, in a way that honors the hospitality so ingrained within the Saudi culture.”
