Shangri-La Jeddah

The lowdown

Having recently opened—on February 22, 2022, to be precise, the 65-storey Shangi-La hotel in Jeddah is the very first Shangri-La property in all of Saudi Arabia, and is already a jewel in the Kingdom’s skyline. The hotel has quickly earned a spot as one of the country’s favorite spots for luxury getaways and business travel.

Offering expansive views of the waterfront, Shangri-La Jeddah is home to a series of room styles, from deluxe rooms with spacious private balconies, to 55 horizon suites and speciality suites. The hotel also includes 17 serviced apartments.

If you’re visiting for a special occasion, however, there’s no going wrong with the Shangri-La Jeddah’s 288sqm suite, which includes two bedrooms, or the royal suite duplex, a 584sqm space housing three bedrooms. Along with family-friendly rooms, the hotel also offers families a range of amenities, from supervised kids clubs to a kids-only pool, and curated family activities.

What’s a holiday without great food? At Shangri-La Jeddah, guests are invited on a culinary journey that spans the globe. While the vibrant Shang Palace offers up authentic Chinese cuisine that blends traditional techniques and new-generation creativity, The Waterfront Kitchen takes inspiration from yacht life and is best known for it nautical look and seafood, tandoor delicacies, and wood fire pizzas and shawarmas.

In the heart of the hotel sits Copa, a serene coffee shop that looks over the Jeddah Waterfront, and for those who love the outdoors, there’s no missing Kaia, the ideal spot for scrumptious beverages, incredible views of the city, and of course, the sunset. On the menu: must-try picks from Hawaii to Japan, and everywhere in between.
