IHG to Open Second Hotel Indigo in Jeddah – Business Traveler

IHG Hotels and Resorts has signed a management agreement with Saudi Investment Group and Marketing Co (SIGMAC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Ghazzawi Group, to open its second Hotel Indigo in Jeddah.

Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2028, the Hotel Indigo Jeddah will consist of 267 hotel rooms and 173 serviced apartments.

The hotel will be developed as part of the SIGMAC mixed-use development on Prince Sultan Road. The development includes the hotel, residences, offices, as well as commercial and entertainment facilities.

In addition to rooms designed to reflect local culture, the hotel will also feature a neighborhood cafe, lobby lounge, meeting rooms, fitness center and swimming pool.

“We are pleased to partner with IHG to bring a new Hotel Indigo to Jeddah with our iconic mixed-use development in the city. We look forward to benefiting from both IHG’s global experience and industry insights, but more importantly, its knowledge of our market through its long-standing presence in Saudi Arabia. When we open our doors in the first quarter of 2028, we plan to offer our guests the unique experience of a Hotel Indigo, in a way that honors the hospitality so ingrained in Saudi culture,” said Jason Addison, CEO of SIGMAC.

Established in 2004, Hotel Indigo is currently present in more than 20 countries with more than 120 hotels. There are also more than 100 hotels in the pipeline in India, the Middle East and Africa. IHG opened Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown, its first Hotel Indigo in the region, last year. Hotel Indigo’s project portfolio includes properties in Doha and Oman.

IHG currently operates 37 hotels across five brands in Saudi Arabia, including: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Staybridge Suites and voco, with 20 hotels under development to open within the next three to five years.

“With the signing of our second management agreement for Hotel Indigo in Jeddah, we look forward to welcoming more guests to visit this exciting and dynamic city in the years to come. We are very encouraged by the Saudi leadership’s investment in revitalizing Jeddah, as part of the Saudi Tourism Development Strategy. Joining our Hotel Indigo properties in Riyadh and Hotel Indigo Durrat Al Arus here in Jeddah, this new deal closely aligns with our ambition to offer a truly unique urban lifestyle proposition to new segments of guests in Saudi Arabia,” said Haitham.
