Hotels in Saudi Arabia are typically international chains. A good range of properties, including luxury hotels, can be found in Riyadh, Jeddah and Al Khobar. In smaller regional centres the options are more limited and usually of a three or four star standard. Al Ula’s desert hotels have stunningly beautiful locations and offer air-conditioned ensuite rooms – some of which have been designed to look like Bedouin tents. Character hotels in Saudi Arabia are thin on the ground. In Al Hofuf the Al Koot Boutique Hotel is set within a traditional courtyard house, and in Al Bahah, the Shada Cave Guesthouse is part of an ancient the troglodytic dwelling. Plans are in motion to open some of the world’s most incredible design hotels in Saudi Arabia. We look forward to welcoming these stunning properties to the portfolio in due course. Female guests should be aware that hotel policies in Saudi Arabia often restrict the use of leisure facilities (gym, pool, etc..) to male guests.
