Following the opening of the first Millennium Central hotel in Downtown Dubai just six months ago, Millennium Central Jeddah will mark the brand's debut in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and is the fourth hotel in the Millennium Central brand portfolio.

A four-star hotel with 210 rooms and suites spread across two towers, the Millennium Central Jeddah will feature three food & beverage outlets, a swimming pool, a health club, three meeting rooms and an event hall with outdoor area.

Commenting on the signing, Kevork Deldelian, who was recently promoted to Chief Executive Officer, Millennium Hotels and Resorts MEA, said: "The signing of the Millennium Central Jeddah represents our ongoing commitment to development in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a market we have been operating in for five years."

"I'm proud to add the Millennium Central Jeddah to our Saudi Arabian portfolio, which comprises eight hotels in operation across Makkah, Madinah and Hail."

Millennium Central is the group's urban four-star brand in central urban locations featuring contemporary design fused with local influences including signature art in each of the properties.

In December, Millennium Hotels & Resorts MEA revealed its ambitious development plans for Saudi Arabia with a goal of operating 25 hotels kingdom-wide by 2025.

The group is targeting strategic locations in every region across the country as it maps out its blueprint for growth over the next five years.
