NEOM's Oxagon To Welcome Hotel Indigo In 2026

NEOM, the ambitious megacity project in Saudi Arabia, has announced that it will host a Hotel Indigo property in its Oxagon region, a coastal industrial city that aims to combine innovation, sustainability, and livability. The hotel, which will be the first IGH property in NEOM, is expected to open in 2026.

Hotel Indigo is a lifestyle brand that offers boutique hotels that reflect the local culture and character of each destination. The Hotel Indigo Oxagon will feature 250 rooms and suits, as well as exciting retail and dining concepts, including cafes, a pool lounge, and a specialty restaurant. Guests will also have access to leisure and wellness facilities, such as a spa, a 24-hour fitness center and a rooftop terrace.

The hotel will be located within the first residential community of Oxagon, which will be fully walkable and connected by sustainable mass transit and micro-mobility solutions. Oxagon is one of the 10 regions planned within NEOM, a futuristic city that spans over 26,000 square kilometers in the northwest of Saudi Arabia. NEOM aims to be a global hub for innovation, technology, and creativity, as well as a model for sustainable development and human well-being.

The hotel is part of a franchise agreement between IHG Hotels & Resorts and NEOM. IHG is one of the world's leading hotel companies, with over 6,000 hotels across 18 brands in more than 100 countries. IHG has been expanding its presence in Saudi Arabia, with several signing of its lifestyle brands, such as Hotel Indigo, vcco, and Kimpton.

Haitham Mattar, Managing Director of IHG for India, Middle East and Africa said: "We are delighted to announce our first IHG hotel in the exciting and rapidly developing region of NEOM. Hotel Indigo is dedicated to embracing the unique essence of each local destination, ensuring that our hotels truly embody the spirit of their locations. We are excited to announce the upcoming opening of this new property in Oxagon. This extraordinary establishment is set to welcome guests in 2026"

The Hotel Indigo Oxagon will be managed by Jean-Francois Palus, who has been appointed as the interim president and CEO for Gucci for a transitional period. Pauls is also the managing director of Kering, the French luxury group that owns Gucci and other brands. Palus will relocate to Milan and resign from Kering's board of directors.

The Hotel Indigo Oxagon is expected to contribute to the goals of Saudi Vision 2030, which aims to diversify the economy, boost tourism and enhance the quality of life for Saudi citizens and visitors.
