Neom signs Singapore’s GHM to manage new hotel in Trojena

The Chedi Trojena will be part of a residential village in one of Trojena’s Relax clusters

Singapore-based General Hotel Management Ltd (GHM) has signed an agreement with Neom Hotel Development to manage “The Chedi Trojena” in the Saudi giga project.

GHM is the second hotel partner for Trojena – a new mountain destination and host venue of the 2029 Asian Winter Games – the company said in a statement.

The Chedi Trojena will be part of a residential village in one of Trojena’s Relax clusters.

“The Chedi Trojena will serve as a luxurious sanctuary in the Gulf’s first outdoor ski resort, where world-class sporting events, art exhibitions, concerts and cultural festivals will be staged,” said Philip Gullett, executive director and region head at Trojena.

In December, US-based engineering consultancy Bechtel was appointed as the project management consultant for Trojena, a year-round mountain destination in the $500 million Neom development.

Trojena is 50km from the Gulf of Aqaba coast in Neom’s mountainous region, spanning over 1,400sq km, with elevations ranging from 1,500m to 2,600m.

Fifty-seven sq km will be dedicated to the main development, which will benefit from the unique mountain climate in the region, where temperatures drop below zero in the winter.

The project will have six distinctive development districts – Gateway, Discover, Valley, Explore, Relax and Fun.

Construction on Trojena commenced in December 2022 and is slated to receive its first guests in 2026.
