Posted in News, Projects on 25 February, 2022

The rise of a luxury landmark on the Jeddah waterfront.

Shangri-La made its brand debut in Saudi Arabia on 22nd February – the Kingdom’s inaugural Founding Day – with 220 new light-filled accommodations, three exceptional restaurants, extensive wellness facilities, and a dedicated kids’ club. The opening of Shangri-La Jeddah marks the dawn of a new era for Saudi Arabia as a leisure destination, welcoming discerning travellers in a location blessed by endless views of the Red Sea and set to become one of the city’s most vibrant lifestyle and dining destinations.

Situated in the exclusive Burj Assila, a 64-storey architectural icon and Jeddah’s tallest building – a soaring 260 metres high tower – the hotel forms part of the two-billion Saudi Riyal, 60,015 square meter mixed-use development project which is also home to 116 state-of-the-art Burj Assila Residences available for sale.

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 colour 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.

With some of the city’s most extensive and versatile event space, including the 960 square meter Shangri-La Grand Ballroom featuring floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Red Sea, the hotel is set to become the city’s most popular venue for weddings and events.
