Nobu, the global lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro and Meir Teper, has just revealed plans to launch a new hotel, Nobu Restaurant and Nobu Residences in the Eastern Province city of Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia, by 2024. Here’s what we know…
Global lifestyle brand Nobu Hotels has become synonymous with passionate service, distinctive design, the finest ingredients, and a powerful energy. Reflecting these core values within the local culture, the new Nobu hotel, restaurant and residences in Al Khobar will be located in the waterfront area of the city, facing the Arabian Gulf. The luxury complex will offer 120 thoughtfully designed guestrooms and suites, a Nobu Restaurant on the lobby level, swimming pools, a wellness centre, as well as a meeting and event space.
“We are elated on our exciting partnership with Nobu, leading the vision in bringing the best of Hotels, Residences and Restaurants to Al Khobar,” stated Yousef Al Quraishi, Chief Executive Officer AZAQ and Vice Chairman Al Khobar Sands Real Estate. “With this attracting people, international development and interest to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as well as growing our economy and improving community lifestyle in line with the Saudi Vision 2030. We are optimistic the Nobu brand will stand strong as the place to be.”

From the very beginning, Nobu has been about creating unforgettable experiences around exceptional food. With 13 hotels open and many more in development around the world, the brand has never moved from what it set out to do – create a platform for memories. The philosophy of Kokoro – which comes from the Japanese word for heart – ties the destinations together and is the heartbeat of Nobu Restaurants, Hotels and Residences.
