A member of the royal family of Saudi Arabia, Prince Abdul Aziz Fawaz Al Saud, reportedly cut his Croatian holiday short by five days after his request to have a hotel beach closed for his private use was declined.
The Prince, who reportedly spent half a million kuna (65 thousand Euros) in just the first two days of his seven day Croatian holiday, requested that staff at the Radisson Blu Resort hotel in Split close the hotel beach for his personal use. The Split-Dalmatia council refused to close the 50 square meter beach, which resulted in the Prince cutting his holiday short by five days, reports daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
The newspaper reports that the Saudi Arabian royalty left Split for Paris, therefore costing the city of Split an estimated 800,000 kuna (105 thousand Euros), an esitimate of what the Prince would have spent during his stay in Split.
Jan Albers, Director of Sales and Marketing at Radisson Blu Resort Split, could only confirm that a member of the Saudia Arabia royal family was staying at the hotel from 5 to 7 July.
