Fun for family


The Dhahran International Hotel in Saudi Arabia is targeting families this summer with fun for children and parents on top of the agenda.

The hotel is offering a special family package for SR195 ($53) a night which includes a free tour of the Gulf on board a floating restaurant and free entry for the whole family to the biggest amusement park in the area.

A children's garden with toys in the pool area is certain to ensure a great holiday for the kids and the parents.

For the adults, the hotel has a range of recreation facilities including an Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis courts, gym, Jacuzzi, steam bath and jogging track. Shopping trips to downtown shopping areas are also arranged three times a day.

The summer package is available for two nights or more and is not open to corporate accounts, according Ibrahim Balaha, the hotel's sales and marketing manager.
