The 25-room hotel will also be fully staffed by women, from the reception area, to the restaurant and room service.

“All the services a woman may need are available under one roof in a luxurious setting,” Omar Ali, supervisor of the upcoming project, said. He also hinted that a number of women-run hotels might also open up in more cities across the Kingdom.

Approximately 1,000 people have currently applied for jobs at the yet-to-be-named hotel.

The first women-only run hotel opened a decade ago. The Luthan Hotel & Spa offer luxurious lodgings and women are employed in every aspect of the business, from IT to security.
