Under the refurbishment of the hotel, more stylish rooms and suites were added, public areas were updated to reflect the Saudi heritage and the vibrant future of the country.

Located in the heart of the city, the hotel occupies the 30th to 48th floors in the Kingdom Centre.

Zawya quoted Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh general manager Guenter Gebhard as saying: “The redesigned spaces embrace the heritage of the city and at the same time, reflect contemporary aesthetics and the design-savvy sensibility of the modern traveller who expects a sensory experience and a place of comfort within the hotel.”

The guest rooms feature two colour palettes, green and turquoise, which are inspired by the meaning of the city’s name.

Additionally, the rooms feature custom wall coverings and handmade accessories which are made by local artisans.

Historic patterns are engraved on the wood with a recurring motif, which is also engraved in the closet wall coverings and the sliding window panels.

Gebhard added that the wall panels are highlighted with tufted and stitched leather upholstery.

The rooms and the suites are equipped with advanced in-room technology, which includes ‘automated curtains and lighting systems, iPads, smart TVs, Bose Bluetooth speakers and smart makeup mirrors’.

Gebhard said: “Our new look, combined with our team’s warm hospitality and Lead With Care health and safety programme, offers an authentic and safe luxury experience for guests unlike any other in the city.”

Next month, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group signed an agreement with the Al Khozama Company to assume the management of the Al Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
