The Plaza Hotel is being owned by an Israeli real estate company and Saudi-based Kingdon holdings Co. Elad, is controlled by a businessman in the name of Yitzhak Tshuva where he will be receiving around $400 million of the amount and the rest would go to Kingdom Holding.

Kingdom is the investment vehicle of the Saudi billionaire Prince who is Alwaleed bin Talal. This is surely a good move of the Sahara group since it would be able to increase its asset with it. This purchase also shows that companies in India are competitive worldwide being able to do such large amount of purchase. India definitely have some of the best companies in the whole world.
