As the hospitality industry in Saudi Arabia continues to evolve and gain global recognition, Red Sea Global and Oracle’s partnership is crucial in ensuring that the Kingdom remains at the forefront of technological advancements and innovation. 

By embracing cutting-edge solutions such as the OPERA Cloud Central Hospitality platform, RSG is enhancing the guest experience and setting a new standard for excellence in the region.

RSG’s premier luxury resorts, including Thuwal Private Retreat, Shebara, and Desert Rock, are at the forefront of this transformative initiative. 

These esteemed destinations are poised to become the inaugural resorts within the Kingdom to harness the power of Oracle’s state-of-the-art cloud hospitality technology solutions. 

Alex Alt, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Oracle Hospitality, said, 

“Saudi Arabia is one of the world’s most exciting hospitality market stories today, and by pioneering a regenerative approach to tourism, Red Sea Global is at the heart of that transformation. Now, Oracle will also be a part of shaping the sector’s future in the region, which is why we are investing heavily in bringing our solutions to the Kingdom.”

Overcoming Barriers Through Jeddah’s Oracle Cloud

Historically, the Oracle Hospitality OPERA Cloud Central platform remained inaccessible to customers within Saudi Arabia due to stringent data residency regulations. 

However, Oracle’s investment in establishing its Oracle Cloud in Jeddah has effectively removed this barrier, opening up a world of possibilities for the entire Saudi hospitality industry to benefit from these cutting-edge technological services.

John Pagano, Group CEO of Red Sea Global, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, 

“The Oracle Hospitality OPERA Cloud Central platform is truly best-in-class, but until now, it has not been accessible to the Saudi Arabian industry.  Oracle was eager to participate in the Kingdom’s exciting transformation, especially within the hospitality industry.”

Moreover, the all-in-one platform enables hotels to eliminate silos and friction across various functional areas, both on and above the property. 

By integrating single image rates and inventory, reservations, groups, and profiles, combined with a unified end-user experience, the platform ensures that information is readily accessible to all key stakeholders at every customer touchpoint.

Alex Alt said, “Through OPERA Cloud, RSG now has a scalable hospitality platform that empowers its guest services staff to provide faster, hassle-free, personalized experiences.”
