Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh, is set to open its doors soon.

The hotel, featuring 321 rooms and suites, is located in the Saudi capital’s Central Business District, providing easy access to corporate offices, government buildings, high-end shopping, restaurants and cafés. It’s part of the mixed-use Al Faisaliah Centre, designed by Foster & Partners.

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group signed an agreement with Al Khozama Company to take over the management of Al Faisaliah Hotel in November. The luxury brand will start operating the property soon and continue with an extensive guestroom and public area renovation, which will be completed at the end of 2021, after which it will be rebranded Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh.

The new rooms and suite interiors have been designed by Adam Tihany Design, New York. Also featured are a variety of refreshed restaurants, lounges and bars, including the popular top floor venue, which commands outstanding views of the city. Revitalised function spaces will cater to social events and business meetings, while an indoor swimming pool, male and female spa areas and a fitness centre complete the leisure facilities.

“The Al Faisaliah Hotel has been a leading light in Saudi Arabia’s hospitality sector since opening its doors 20 years ago. We are pleased to be partnering with Mandarin Oriental to further develop the hotel and to create the most luxurious and sophisticated property in the region,” said Khalid Abuhaimed, CEO of Al Khozama.
