Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has signed an agreement with the Al Khozama Company to manage and rebrand the Al Faisaliah Hotel, Riyadh, marking the group’s entry into Saudi Arabia.
Come 1Q2021, the group will take over the management of the 20-year-old property, which will be rebranded as Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh at the end of 2021, upon the completion of an extensive renovation.
Situated in the heart of Riyadh’s CBD, the Al Faisaliah Hotel forms part of the mixed-use Al Faisaliah Centre, and comprises 321 guestrooms and suites, with new interiors designed by New York’s Adam Tihany Design.
Following the refurbishment, the hotel will feature a variety of refreshed restaurants, lounges and bars. 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.
