Saudi-based Designs Group, specialised in the hospitality sector, unveiled today at the INDEX Exhibition in Dubai, some of its latest hotel projects in progress in KSA. Making the announcement Eng. Mohammad Al-Nadi, CEO of Designs Group, said, “In line with the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision to attract 30 million visitors annually, tourism has emerged as one of the most promising sectors of the Saudi Economy.
This is driving massive demand for hotels and has opened fabulous opportunities for us at a time when we are engaged in accelerating the company’s expansion. We began 2018 with three fantastic hotel projects (complete fitout) in Saudi Arabia boasting over 2000 rooms. These vary from a superb 400-rooms smart hotel to a 1000-rooms 4 & 5-star property and a 600-rooms beach resort.”
In addition to these projects, Designs Group has entered into an agreement with a specialized services company to jointly restructure and develop other companies within the group. Eng. Mohammad Al-Nadi, stressed, “As part of this endeavour we will be working on the reconstruction of Al Mubarak Group from Saudi by training, developing and qualifying its human resources. The primary objective behind this project is to position the group as a competitive brand in the local and regional hospitality industry.”
Furthermore, ProArt which is one of the subsidiaries of Designs Group has entered into a MOU for long term cooperation with ELAF Hospitality Group (KSA) to bring into the Saudi market this year, 1500 hotel rooms in 4 and 5-star categories. There are other projects too in the design and budgeting phase.
Eng. Mohammad Al-Nadi, said, “Collaborating with our successful venture in the UK F&B hospitality market ‘LOVE 4 FOOD’, we are working on signing several contracts to promote its brand Gerasol Tasteofitaly in the GCC. In the launch phase we will be franchising the brand to open four branches within KSA. This will be the start of future expansion across the GCC and other parts of the Middle East”.
