Riyadh hotel transforms hall for Ramadan

Al Faisaliah Hotel

AL FAISALIAH Hotel is transforming the largest banqueting hall in Saudi Arabia into a stunning venue for Iftar and Sohour celebrations during Ramadan.
A top class team of designers has been assembled by the Rosewood Hotel to change the Prince Sultan Grand Hall into a multi million Riyal ‘New Arabesque’ ballroom in time for the start of the holy month.
Details of the special design features – based on Arabesque architecture and a series of fountains - are being kept under wraps for the time being.  But the hotel says guests will be dazzled by what they find inside the Grand Hall, which is the largest public column-free space in the Kingdom.
“We’ve commissioned some of the most forward thinking, creative design teams in the Middle East to come up with a unique experience for guests to break the fast,” said Wolfgang Pachler, managing director, Al Faisaliah Hotel.
“This is an entirely new concept in Riyadh, and it goes beyond what our guests normally expect during the Holy Month of Ramadan.  We’re not giving anything more away at this stage, but we can promise that there will be no better way to enjoy Iftar or Sohour, with the dining experience complimented by a very imaginative interpretation of traditional Arabesque architecture.”
The hotel is expecting to welcome more than 20,000 guests during Ramadan, and Iftar and Sohour meals will start at SAR275, plus service charges.
Covering an area of 49,970 sq ft, the Prince Sultan Grand Hall has a capacity for 2,800 diners and is the largest and most flexible venue of its kind in Saudi.
