Shangri-La makes towering debut
Far East meets Middle East, as Shangri-La, with 220 new accommodations, three exceptional restaurants, extensive wellness facilities, and a dedicated kids’ club, opened its doors earlier this year.
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.
The hotel is perfectly positioned within proximity of the city’s premier shopping areas and is just a stone’s throw from the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, home to the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix - the fastest street circuit in Formula 1.
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.
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 Technogym 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.
A serene 25-metre outdoor swimming pool with spectacular sea-view is located on the seventh floor alongside extensive recreational facilities. Guests can cherish moments with family and little ones, thanks to the introduction of a fun-packed Kids’ Club with an immersive roster of activities and entertainment.
With some of the city’s most extensive and versatile event space, including the 960 square metre 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.
