Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh

A renewed beacon of luxury in Riyadh

A veteran among sumptuous city center stays in Saudi Arabia’s capital, Mandarin Oriental Al Faisaliah, Riyadh has entered a new era of luxury at the hands of renowned hospitality brand Mandarin Oriental. Like a fabulous butterfly, the property has emerged from a two-year renovation chicer and more stylish than ever.

Perfectly perched in the heart of the buzzy Al Olaya district, the luxury hotel could be forgiven for resting on its well-placed laurels, but a timeless refresh of all 226 accommodations and public spaces proves that this retreat is more than willing to evolve with the times. A slew of sumptuous facilities, including an indulgent women-only spa and the famous panoramas of the Globe restaurant, ensure that you don’t have to travel far for a taste of the high life — though the newly redeveloped Faisaliyah Centre’s upscale mall is just steps from your front door.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Concealed within the three-story golden sphere crowning Al Faisaliah Hotel, The Globe offers some of the best panoramic views of the city with a modern European menu to match. This is a highly sought-after reservation that you’re more likely to snag as a guest of the luxury hotel.
  • Recently refreshed accommodations feature a neutral color palette of light creams and rich woods that add warmth to the spacious rooms. Deep soaking tubs and window-side settees are just a few of the opulent touches you can expect.
  • The Royal Suite embodies the epitome of luxury. Covering an elegant expanse of 2,852 square feet, this residence offers a harmonious color scheme of celadon green and opulent gold, a regal dining room, a balcony with stunning views of King Fahd Road and much more.

  • For an unforgettable Riyadh retreat, check into the 6,181-square-foot Penthouse Suite. Sprawling across two floors, the palatial accommodation boasts high-end contemporary Arabian touches such as gold wallpaper, ornate fixtures and eye-catching green marble bathrooms.
  • The richly adorned Al Faisaliah Spa sets high expectations that are easily matched by the array of sumptuous services it offers. For a dose of Arabian indulgence, opt for the Golden Hammam experience, made extra luxurious with a gold scrub, golden body mask and a bath with golden shower oil.
  • Need a break from the sun? Take a dip in the Riyadh hotel’s indoor pool. Low lighting, water features and plenty of loungers make this a relaxing retreat after a long day of shopping or sightseeing.

The Restaurants

  • The views may take center stage at The Globe, but its kitchen is no afterthought. For a premier indulgence, opt for the seven-course tasting menu to enjoy modern European plates like tahini ricotta with English garden peas, beef consommé with foie gras and pickled shimeji mushrooms, and a sinful soft chocolate ganache served with jasmine ice cream.
  • Take a trip around the Mediterranean with two European-inspired restaurants. Dine on French Riviera-themed fare alongside bright works of Pop art at LPM Restaurant & Café and savor Italian cuisine beneath lemon trees at Mamo Michelangelo.
  • Live cooking stations add a dash of excitement to airy international dining room La Brasserie. For alfresco tea and sweet treats, pop over to La Brasserie Cafe, where live trees provide just the right amount of shade on a warm day.
  • For a taste of Mandarin Oriental’s Asian roots, dig into modern dim sum at Yauatcha. The mouthwatering concept from the acclaimed Hakkasan Group is the first for the brand in the Middle East.
