Marriott International will launch three new hotels across Saudi Arabia after signing an agreement with Al Saedan Group.

The multi hotel agreement features the country and territory's first Renaissance Hotel, as well as the world's largest Aloft Hotel.

It will also include a Courtyard by Marriott in the holy city of Makkah.

"We are pleased to build on our fantastic relationship with Al Saedan Group and further expand our portfolio across Saudi Arabia with these milestone signings," said Satya Anand, president for Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International.

All three properties are expected to open by 2025.

The Renaissance Hotels brand will debut with Renaissance Riyadh Hotel with 266 suites, food and beverage outlets and recreational amenities including a spa, swimming pool and fitness centre.

Marriott is further strengthening the Courtyard by Marriott footprint in Saudi Arabia with Courtyard by Marriott Makkah Kudai. The hotel is expected to have 438 guestrooms.

Additionally, the Makkah Taysir will become the largest hotel in the Aloft portfolio with 1,000 guestrooms. It will be located in the Taysir district, close to the Grand Mosque entrance.

Marriott International's portfolio in Saudi Arabia spans more than 30 properties across 10 brands.
