Movenpick opens villa-only resort on Arabian coast

 The five-star Mövenpick Beach Resort Al Khobar has officially opened, with the property expected to set a new standard for family holidays on the Arabian coast.

The resort, the ninth hotel to be opened by Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, offers 36 three-bedroom duplex villas – including two Royal Villas each with a majlis – two restaurants, a spa and fitness center, free-form swimming pool, a kids club, landscaping and private beach.

The design of the villas is said to “epitomize contemporary comfort with a relaxed Mediterranean feel,” according to Markus Marti, general manager of the new property.

Dining outlets in the Mövenpick Beach Resort Al Khobar include the Azure restaurant, which offers gourmet seafood in a Mediterranean-style lounge; and The Clubhouse, which offers à la carte all-day dining. Within The Clubhouse is the Retreat Wellness Center & Spa, featuring separate rooms for men and women, as well as European beauty treatments, private massage, sauna, steam rooms, and a fitness area with gym equipment.

An adult swimming pool and a separate private pool area for children are available. There is also a Kids Club, which has a range of activities as well as a children’s dining menu.
