Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group is adding Saudi Arabia to its country network. The luxury hotel chain’s latest addition in the Middle East is the Al Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh.
The 321-room and -suite hotel is currently undergoing a refurbishment. Mandarin Oriental expects to take over management during the first quarter of 2021.
A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property will rebrand as Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh once the upgrade has been completed at the end of next year.
The Al Faisaliah Hotel is in the heart of the Riyadh’s CBD. That location gives guests easy access to corporate offices, government buildings, high-end shopping, restaurants and cafes.
The enhancement includes new interiors 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.
“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.
“We are delighted to further strengthen Mandarin Oriental’s presence in the Middle East by introducing the brand to Saudi Arabia and bringing the Group’s legendary service to Riyadh,” said James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
