Guests will enjoy the fact we have integrated technology into everything we do and offer fast connectivity. As a young brand for Emaar Hospitality Group, Vida Hotels and Resorts offers something new and different in terms of hotel experiences and Vida Jeddah Gate and Vida Residences Jeddah Gate will deliver exceptional experiences and value to our guests and residents for the first time in the Kingdom.” 


Vida Jeddah Gate will offer guests all-day dining restaurant, lobby lounge, a signature restaurant and a bistro. It will have a dedicated events space that can host up to 120 people. A fully-fledged spa and fitness centre, podium level pool, kids club and pool lounge. All these facilities are also accessible for Vida Residences Jeddah Gate residents. 

With a total gross floor area of 519,204 sq ft, nearly equally split between the hotel and serviced residences, the new hospitality project is deploying the latest advances in green building design and construction to reduce the project’s energy footprint.
