UK’s Yotel to open first hotel in Neom’s Oxagon in 2025

The hotel will showcase the latest features, including robotic concierge, motorised smart beds, etc.

Oxagon, the home of advanced and clean industries in the $500 billion Neom megacity, will be home to the first Yotel hotel in Saudi Arabia.

The UK-based hotel operator Yotel said in a statement the 300-key property will be located in the integrated live-work-play Research and Innovation (R&I) district and is set to open in 2025.

The hotel will showcase the latest features, including the brand’s signature robotic concierge, motorised smart beds, and fully integrated technologies.

Guests will have access to Komyuniti – Yotel’s multi-functional dining and co-working space, a 24-hour fitness centre, a Grab-and-Go Cafe, and meeting spaces used to network and relax. The surrounding areas will be walkable and connected to nearby communities through advanced, active, micro and autonomous mobility solutions.

“Oxagon’s ambition to house hospitality assets where innovative design, sustainability and technologies converge, echoes our core values at Yotel,” said Hubert Viriot, CEO of Yotel. 

“Oxagon promises to be a unique destination where new tech-enabled hospitality experiences can be live-tested,” he added.

The partnership marks the latest hotel agreement with Neom’s Hotel Development, the division responsible for building a future-centric hospitality ecosystem in the northwest corner of Saudi Arabia.

“Yotel’s decision to open their property in Neom’s Oxagon is a powerful endorsement of our ambition to redefine how people travel, stay and live,” said Chris Newman, executive director, hotel development at Neom.
