IHG Hotels & Resorts is continuing to grow its property pipeline across Saudi Arabia with plans to open a new Hotel Indigo property in the coastal city of OXAGON. The development of this Hotel Indigo property underscores the ambitions developers have to make OXAGON a new urban model where industry and thriving communities come together.
Following the signing of a franchise agreement, IHG is set to open the 250-key Hotel Indigo property in the sustainably developed OXAGON city, which is a part of NEOM in the northwest of Saudi Arabia, in 2026. The hotel will be situated within the residential part of a city that’s designed to bring communities together with clean industry, commercial, hospitality, entertainment and retail activities, as well as fully walkable neighbourhoods and sustainable on-demand mass transit and micro mobility solutions.
"We are delighted to announce our first IHG hotel in the exciting and rapidly developing region of NEOM. Hotel Indigo is dedicated to embracing the unique essence of each local destination, ensuring that our hotels truly embody the spirit of their locations." - Haitham Mattar, MD, India, Middle East and Africa, IHG
“Hotel Indigo’s vision to create a boutique neighbourhood hotel reflecting OXAGON’s ethos of bringing people and technology together in harmony with nature, makes IHG the right partner for the first upscale property for our urban communities. As progress across our industrial and innovation ecosystems accelerate, these agreements ensure that exceptional hospitality experiences are available to tenants, residents, and visitors from the outset.” - Vishal Wanchoo, CEO of OXAGON
The lifestyle hotel will be designed to reflect its locale as it takes inspiration from its surroundings. Here, the Hotel Indigo property will encompass a range of lifestyle retail and dining concepts, including a cafe, specialty restaurant and pool lounge, along with leisure facilities such as a fitness centre and spa.
