Is it correct to say 'women'or 'woman' in the sentence;

On a couple of occasions i visited Saudia Arabia and some Arab women mistook me for being a native speaker. Grammarly suggests i use the singular, but I dont agree.

Please help.

Many Thanks.

See example:

On a couple of occasions I visited Saudi Arabia and some Arab women mistook me for being a native speaker, then they were impressed to learn that I was not.

'Women' is correct. You need a comma after 'occasions' and 'Arabia'. I would end this sentence after 'speaker' and start a new sentence eliminating 'then'.
