Preferred Hotels & Resorts adds Saudi, Bahrain hotels to portfolio

Preferred Hotels & Resorts has added two new hotels in Saudi Arabia and another in Bahrain to its portfolio.

The three additions consist of two boutique properties—the Vivienda Residences and Vivienda Granada—in the Saudi capital city of Riyadh, along with the independent Domain Hotel & Spa in Manama, Bahrain.

“This is a milestone moment in the development of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts brand in the Middle East,” Preferred Hotels & Resorts EVP Saurabh Rai said in a statement.

Preferred Hotels & Resorts does not operate any hotels, but provides sales, marketing and distribution services to independent properties. Last year, Preferred reportedly generated more than $1 billion in collective reservations revenue for its member properties around the world. This year, the company has generated a 19-percent increase in reservations revenue for member properties globally from January through August 2016, compared to the same time period in 2015.
