Kerzner International has entered into an agreement with Al Khozama Management Company, an award-winning Saudi developer and owner of luxury hotels, in partnership with Saudi Oger, to develop and operate a new One&Only resort in Jeddah on the Red Sea.

The resort will feature 150 guest rooms, suites and villas, an One&Only residential component, extensive meeting facilities, world-class dining and retail options, plus a health spa.

The 95,000 sqm property will be located in Obhur, north of Jeddah, less than 30 minutes from King Abdulaziz International Airport, and will command 230 metres of beachfront. This will be One&Onlys first resort in The Kingdom.

I am thrilled we are able to partner with Al Khozama Management Company and Saudi Oger to develop this world-class destination. Jeddah is the perfect location for the first One&Only experience in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The beachfront location is remarkable and I am very confident the resort will be well received by our many loyal One&Only guests and new guests alike, said Alan Leibman, CEO, Kerzner International.

Like all properties within the One&Only and Al Khozama collections, One&Only Jeddah will place an emphasis on privacy while evoking a sense of place, showcasing the countrys rich history and reflecting the local culture with a design appeal to attract the contemporary traveller seeking ultimate luxury. As with all One&Only properties, this resort will offer innovative programming for families with children whilst carefully preserving space for adults only as well. Guests will also have access to a host of unique sporting and entertainment facilities on-site.

We are excited about this new development and its expected contribution to the continued growth of Jeddah in particular and that of the countrys hospitality sector in general, said His Highness Prince Bandar bin Saud bin Khalid, Chairman, Al Khozama Management Company. One&Only Resorts are found in the most beautiful locales in the world and this location is no exception. Coupled with the new experiences that One&Only will bring and the commanding position Al Khozama enjoys in the country for developing iconic properties, including the Al Faisaliah Complex in Riyadh, this resort will transform the hospitality offerings in Saudi Arabia.
