A gateway to the holy city of Makkah, Jeddah is a captivating destination combining old and new, which attracts travellers from across the globe as a centre for international business and a destination for public art and curious travellers. Today, Jeddah is Saudi Arabia’s buzzing cosmopolitan hub and UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to gleaming hotels and art events, making it one of the Kingdom’s most exciting places to explore. The magical historical quarter, Al Balad, also known as the city’s heart, is famous for its intricately designed houses, built using coral from the depths of the Red Sea and boasting colourful rawasheen balconies. Retracing the steps of traders and pilgrims, the Red Sea is central to all activity, be it trade or leisure activities such as diving, while remaining a key access point for the domestic supply chain, in particular Jeddah’s legendary seafood industry.
Located in the heart of Jeddah’s vibrant and exclusive Hamra district, one of the prominent corporate, financial and entertainment districts, the hotels are just a stone’s throw away from the famous Corniche and the charming Old City, offering a unique choice for both business and leisure travellers.
