A New Definition of Luxury Hospitality in Saudi Arabia

Al Faisaliah Hotel Renovation
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

HOK’s design for a luxurious renovation of guest rooms and public space will ensure the five-star Al Faisaliah Hotel remains Saudi Arabia’s marquee destination for sophisticated travelers. 

Al Khozama Management Company recently celebrated the 15-year anniversary of its Al Faisaliah Hotel with an ambitious plan: A complete renovation of the property designed to set it further apart from the competition and strengthen Al Faisaliah’s position as the kingdom’s signature ultra-luxury hotel.

In winning an international design competition for the project, HOK presented Al Khozama and its chairman, Prince Bandar bin Saud bin Khalid Al Saud, a solution to incorporate innovative technology and create an oasis of calm that targets upscale business travelers well-versed in fine detail and amenities. A captivating guest experience begins at the onset in a seven-story atrium that bathes guests in a series of geometric shadows generated by a bespoke light sculpture.

Guestroom redesign includes a dramatic transformation of 228 rooms, including superior, deluxe and executive configurations. 

HOK also redesigned the property’s highest profile spaces: Royal Suite 6 and Royal Suite 7. These spaces feature high-level, customized design, including unparalleled room layouts and layering of textures and semi-precious finishes that make these luxury accommodations comparable to the world’s most opulent and distinctive pieds-à-terre.
