Hong Kong-based multinational hospitality company Shangri-La is making its brand debut in Saudi Arabia next week with 220 new light-filled accommodations, three exceptional restaurants, extensive wellness facilities, and a dedicated kids’ club.

The Shangri-La Jeddah is perfectly positioned within proximity of the city’s premier shopping areas and is just close to the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, home to the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix. Situated in the exclusive Burj Assila, a 64-story architectural icon with 260 meters height, the hotel forms part of the $533 million, 60,015- square meters mixed-use development project.

The 220 world-class accommodations, including 148 deluxe guestrooms and 55 suites, as well as 17 serviced apartments, feature views over the Red Sea and the Jeddah skyline from floor-to-ceiling windows which illuminate the light color palette, with blue and beige accents awaiting guests. Providing remarkable sea views, the spacious balconies and sophisticated room design mimic the glistening serenity of the waterfront.

Shangri-La Jeddah’s restaurants blend traditional flavors with local influences and modern techniques for a one-of-a-kind experience. The new outpost of award-winning restaurant Shang Palace, a new home in Jeddah for soulful modern Chinese cuisine, infuses traditional Chinese motifs and Arabesque patterns, creating a see-and-be-seen space inspired by traditional courtyard siheyuan houses where the service and ambiance are as exciting as the food.

The Wellness Club at Shangri-La will offer extensive health and wellness facilities for men and women across two floors, including a full range of state-of-the-art Techno gym cardio machines and weights. The facility is also home to The Spa at Shangri-La, featuring a bespoke menu by award-winning experts Natura Bissé, a sauna and Jacuzzi, as well as a Hammam with a range of treatment rooms.

Spa rituals and experiences are delivered by highly skilled therapists from around the world, with a menu focusing on effective beauty and wellness therapies, complemented by carefully selected products to encourage journeys of inner balance and absolute relaxation, skin renewal and rejuvenation.

With serene 25-meter outdoor swimming pool with spectacular sea-view, a fun-packed Kids’ Club with immersive activities and entertainment as well as the city’s most extensive and versatile event space, including the 960 sq.m Grand Ballroom featuring floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Red Sea, the Shangri-La hotel is set to become the city’s new standard for luxury.
