The resort comes with contemporary and spacious deluxe villas with facilities like private lagoon beach, a wellness centre and restaurants offering a variety of excellent dining options.

Green Globe recently recertified Mövenpick Beach Resort Al Khobar for the fourth consecutive year. The resort boasts of sustainable development and operations and recognizes the importance of reducing its carbon footprint by ensuring that its current practices are measured and evaluated.

A comprehensive audit was undertaken by FARNEK, Green Globe’s preferred partner in the Middle East. The property has reduced energy usage by 3.55% compared to 2015 figures. Outdoor lighting has been replaced with energy efficient lighting and timers fitted.


Future actions will see the replacement of existing lighting with LEDs inside villas and landscaped areas. Solar panels will be installed to provide power for streetlights and hot water in villas and kitchens.

Water consumption has decreased by 4.03% compared to 2015 and a sewage treatment plant (STP) processes wastewater that is used for irrigating landscaped areas. The property currently has a waste management program in place that handles the recycling of materials such as plastic, paper, cooking oils and aluminium cans. Plans are also in progress to convert food waste into compost for landscaping in the future.

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, an international upscale hotel management company with over 16,000 staff members, is represented in 24 countries with 83 hotels, resorts and Nile cruisers currently in operation. Around 20 properties are planned or under construction, including those in Chiang Mai (Thailand), Bali (Indonesia) and Nairobi (Kenya).
