While The Ritz-Carlton opening is still some years away, Marriott has several other properties in the Kingdom that will open soon. In 2024 Bab Samhan Hotel, SO/ Jeddah, The Jeddah EDITION, and three properties on Sindalah Island in Neom will all welcome guests. Marriott also has plans to bring the EDITION Hotel and a Moxy Hotel to Diriyah.

Diriyah is emerging as the foremost historic cultural destination in Saudi Arabia. The sprawling hub will transform this historic town into a global tourism destination, rooted in its cultural and historical identity. Styled in Najdi architecture, an authentic Saudi Arabian building style, the destination transports visitors to the bygone centuries when the Arabian Peninsula was born. Diriyah's grand transformation is set to include cultural institutions, museums, local and international restaurants, hotels and more.
