Hospitality Designs from Saudi Arabia is our journey today! We are going to present seven of the best hotels you can find in Jeddah and Riyadh whose designs seem like they were taken from the folk tales we all love – Arabian Nights! You can also find hospitality design inspiration from Shanghai, Paris, New York, London and Chicago in this blog.
Jeddah is the historic crossroads of pilgrims and traders and the traditional entry to Mecca. Jeddah is one of the most fascinating Saudi Arabia’s major cities, with a cosmopolitan and liberal air unparalleled to the other cities of the Kindom. Visitors will love the city’s World Heritage Red Sea architecture, its bustling souq, the laid-back coastline that is home to fantastic dive sites, and its diverse, world-class cuisine.
As soon as guests step into the Assila the lobby invites them to discover more than two thousand outstanding pieces by Saudi Artists placed throughout the hotel. The hotel has 304 rooms and suites, being the only hotel that doubles as an art gallery. Surrounded by chic boutiques, the Saudi Centre for Fine Arts, the Assila’s location celebrates the city’s progress. Combining art with Arabian hospitality, contemporary design and amazing city views, Assila is the definition of elegance and comfort.
The Ritz-Carlon Jeddah celebrates the city’s palatial design roots. Located at the Al Hamra corniche, overlooking the magnificent Red Sea and the King Fahd’s Fountain, this hotel welcomes guests with palatial tradition embedded in its exterior and interior designs. The Ritz-Carlon Jeddah is the go-to hotel for many international travellers, honeymooners and families wanting to escape city life. The mesmerising ornate crystal chandeliers, marble floors and lush gardens elevate anyone’s stay, making them feel like royalty.
Considered to be the pearl for the Red Sea, the Rosewood is located along Saudi Arabia’s west coast, presenting a perfect location filled with luxurious touches. With splendid design and exceptional sophistication, the Rosewood have all the markings for a royal experience, be it for leisure or business travel. The hotel is located within thirty minutes from King Abdulaziz International Airport and Jeddah’s most popular landmarks and shopping districts. The Rosewood has 127 rooms and suites, an exquisite rooftop pool for male guests, a fitness centre and function rooms for business meetings.
Waldorf Astoria Jeddah, also known as Qsar Al Sharq – the Palace of the East, is opulence personified. The hotel has privileged views of the Red Sea, with Swarovski crystal chandeliers at the lobby and every suite has 24-karat-gold-leaf wrapped TVs. Service, of course, follows the same excellence as the hotel with an all-female staff at the women’s only spa, a 24h butler service, thus providing royalty-like service to its guests.
Riyadh is one of the most wealthy cities in the world, home to Saudi Arabia’s best museum, some of the finest hotels and restaurants and a World Heritage Site related to the Kingdom’s genesis story. Meaning garden, Riyadh is a soaring modern city with towers rising up above the surrounding desert. Riyadh recently hosted the country’s very first music festival, where a female singer performed live for the first time in Saudi history.
Fairmont Riyadh is located at the heart of the city’s Business Gate thus this hotel is perfect for business travellers. The elegant lobby is a chic mix of art deco style highlighted with geometric patterns and bold use of black, gold and warm yellow hues that delights everyone. The Fairmont Riyadh’s exterior pays homage to the region’s Islamic architecture, with seven domes, while the hotel’s interior boasts contemporary designs, seamlessly blending classic with modern designs.
Four Seasons Riyadh is an urban oasis of elegance and sophistication, tranquillity and comfort, complete with traditional Saudi Arabian hospitality. Occupying the iconic ninety-nine-floor Kingdom Centre Tower and connected to the centre mall, this amazing hotel makes a convenient stay for both business travellers and leisure travellers alike. The lobby radiates pure sophistication with high ceilings and marble floors and rows of palm trees.
The Ritz-Carlton Riyadh exudes royal palace luxury worthy of royals and government dignitaries. Originally designed to be a royal place, the hotel opened its doors in 2011. The hotel has 492 rooms and suites, some of which were used by high-powered guests such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
