The hotel is to be managed by Al Khozama, a hotel management company with a deep-rooted sense of traditional Saudi hospitality. The lobby is warm, elegant and welcoming. Comforting shades of beige and white surround you, and marble, wooden finishes and modern accents adorn the furniture. Once you enter the lobby, you’re overwhelmed with a feeling of openness in the expansive atrium and skylight.
The rooms are designed in a highly functional and modern way integrating lovely traditional Arabic embellishments and come with a luxury range of amenities. The hotel holds 189 deluxe rooms, and six suites with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing breathtaking panoramic sea views.

Several of the meeting rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with inspirational views, the perfect ambience for productive meetings. The hotel is also a perfect venue for weddings and other social functions with its views of the sea and accessibility to the waterfront. Guests and visitors can dine at the colorful Seasons, an all-day-dining restaurant perfect for busy travelers and leisure visitors. The restaurant features a fine blend of Middle Eastern, Asian, Indian and European cuisines, and themed nights perfect for a unique experience. Also, businessmen can enjoy conversations over cigars at the hotel’s cigar lounge Corojo, a relaxing and chic cigar room with an unrivaled collection of renowned cigar brands and a terrace seating with canal and marina views.
Other amenities include fitness centers for both men and women, perfect for a healthy start to your day. A full marina is planned as part of phase two which is currently under development. This will offer boat charter, fishing, diving as well as mooring services. Transportation amenities include a city shuttle, limousine and rent-a-car service.
This is the first hotel in KAEC and it has been lauded and well-received by those who have had the opportunity to visit the hotel during its pre-opening. It is designed to be the event venue of choice, the perfect retreat from the everyday congestion and limitations of existing offerings in Jeddah, and a great spot for corporate and social users to meet within the Kingdom!
