The Elaf Group, a Sedco Holding Group company and a leading provider of travel, tourism and hospitality services, opened a new five-star city hotel in Jeddah this February. The soft opening of Elaf Galleria is part of the group’s strategic expansion plans aimed at further solidifying its leading presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s flourishing tourism and hospitality sector. The initiative complements the goals and objectives of Saudi Vision 2030 to support the national economy by promoting tourism.
The Hotel Galleria by Elaf is a landmark inspired by the famed Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Italy, designed in 1861 and built by Giuseppe Mengoni. The hotel has 364 rooms spread across 7 floors on two separate wings enclosed by a vaulted glass and metal roof. The property also features banquet and luxurious events facilities, an Executive Lounge and other recreational facilities including a health club and spa. Restaurants providing fine dining inside the hotel include The Kitchen, El-Vaquero, The Birdcage, Milano and Aqua.
STR’s preliminary January 2018 data for hotels in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, states that the supply increased by 11.7 per cent in the month of January.
