Strategically located in the vibrant Al Sahafa district, this contemporary property is the ideal choice for both business and leisure travelers seeking a blend of comfort, convenience, and wellbeing. Novotel Riyadh Sahafa is set in close proximity to King Abdullah Financial District, Riyadh Exhibition Center, and Riyadh Boulevard, the city’s largest entertainment center.

The state-of-the-art facilities are designed to provide a tranquil retreat for business travelers seeking to rest after a busy day and families looking to spend quality time together.

Hessa Almazroa said that, “This is a significant milestone for Novotel as we strengthen our presence in the dynamic and transforming Saudi market. We are dedicated to merging international hospitality standards with local culture to create uniquely enriching moments for our guests inspiring them to reconnect with their friends, family, and colleagues.”

Almazroa emphasized the rise of Saudi women and the positive impact of Saudization on the hospitality industry, stating that, “It is a great honor to lead a team of such talented and committed professionals. We are not only contributing to Saudi Arabia’s hospitality scene but also setting a benchmark for inclusive excellence. By empowering Saudi women and nurturing potential talents, we are actively supporting the Saudization initiative. I look forward to fostering and developing our future leaders.”
