Accelerating human progress
Hospitality is on the verge of unprecedented change. To be the catalyst you need creativity, imagination and courage. New ways of thinking can change everything – with innovative business models and original experiences.
In the new future we are building, human potential is unlimited. For we can elevate the way we engage with one another and optimize the space where we live, work and gather. Let’s reimagine the future of global hospitality together.

in challenging norms
NEOM Hotel Development is built on the belief that the best solutions to evolving market needs are built through collaboration.
International hotel brands
In collaboration with hotel organizations, we will drive paradigm shifts in our approach to architecture, design, products and experiences. We will work with these brands to reimagine how guests connect with spaces in the context of this ambitious future-focused community.
We will drive change by establishing imaginative ventures with international brands, bringing never-before-seen experiences to NEOM. These will be co-imagined between NHD and each partner brand.
We will be at the leading edge of hospitality, challenging every industry norm – and creating new benchmarks. Bold and visionary investors will have the opportunity to align themselves with our initiatives, as we deconstruct the hotel experience.
