Fairmont to open new hotels in Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Mexico

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has announced the launch of three luxury hotels in Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Mexico.

Located in the Taghazout Bay resort, the Fairmont Taghazout Bay, Morocco is slated for a 2019 opening. The hotel will be situated on nearly two million square feet of beach adjacent to a Kyle Philips-designed 18-hole golf course. The 155-guestroom hotel will feature ocean views and 52 luxury waterfront villas, the first of their kind to debut in the country. 27,000 square feet of flexible event space will also be available in addition to a spa, fitness center, onsite restaurants, and a beach pool bar and grill.

The Fairmont Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia will debut in 2020 in Al Khobar, a coastal city on the Arabian Gulf. Located in a high-end commercial area, the 240-room hotel will include 12 serviced residences and almost 43,000 square feet of events and meeting space, including the largest ballroom in the Eastern Province. Amenities will include a lobby lounge, a range of F&B options including a specialty restaurant and gourmet pastry café, and a spa and fitness center.

As part of the brand’s expansion in the Middle East, Africa, and India, the two properties will grow Fairmont’s presence to 20 hotels in the region by 2020.

Slated to open its doors in late 2018, the 250-room Fairmont Costa Canuva, Mexico will debut as part of the seaside Costa Canuva community on the Riviera Nayarit just north of Punta Mita.

The Fairmont Costa Canuva will include private Fairmont-branded residences and 40 Fairmont Gold guestrooms. 22,000 square feet of meeting and events space will be available in addition to six bars and restaurants, an outdoor swimming pool, an activity center for children and young adults, and the 13,000-square-foot Willow Stream Spa.

The hotel will also be a short distance from the Sanctuary Convention Center. The Costa Canuva community, spanning 4.3 miles of shoreline and 630 acres of beach and mountains, will comprise five hotels from multiple brands. The beachfront village will feature 2,500 residential units designed by Mexico City-based firm Artigas Arquitectos, as well as a PGA-level golf course.
