KHI was formed earlier this year as part of a move by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal to consolidate the disparate hotel assets owned by his Kingdom Holding Company. KHI has paid-in capital of $211 million. Partners include Sheikh Mohamed bin Issa al-Jaber, a prominent Saudi businessman whose companies include Jadawel Internationaland the Ajwa Group.
The fresh Egyptian acquisition brings KHI’s regional portfolio to 10 hotels. The company values its real estate assets at $1,000 million in total.
