Al Faisaliah Hotel to expand its offerings of luxury

Published April 5th, 2010 - 06:54 GMT

Modern, elegant, cutting edge – these concepts are at the heart of The new wing at Al Faisaliah Hotel, a Rosewood Hotel, which opens later this year.

Designed by Princess Al Anoud Bint Khaled Al Saud , owner and founder of Al Dar Designs, the new wing brings a fresh new feel to the hotel with vibrant colours and touches of Arabian and Islamic culture throughout.  She is renowned for her artistic flair and ability to integrate colour and design which exudes elegance, simplicity and vibrancy. Throughout the design, Princess Al Anoud has maintained a sensory connection to the original ‘Dune’ theme of the existing hotel.

The new wing, an extension to the existing hotel, will include 106 rooms and suites, an exclusive and luxurious ladies-only spa and an exciting new Italian restaurant.

Commenting on her inspirations and thoughts while designing the new wing, Princess Al Anoud said, “Many hotels you see in Saudi are elegant but very traditional in design. Al Faisaliah Hotel has been the pinnacle of elegant design but with this wing we wanted to now bring international hotel design to the Kingdom that stands out for its unique infusion of Arabian culture into the central theme. This was a very important element to us” she said.

She added that for the new wing, ‘We’ve chosen to go with Art Deco Classic and use Royal Ottoman Iznic patterns and Arabic Calligraphy as a key element of the Arabian and Islamic art throughout the wing. We’re also using 4-5 vibrant colours that when integrated give a very fresh feeling.”

Peter Finamore, Managing director of Al Faisaliah Hotel, A Rosewood Hotel, said, “We at Al Faisaliah Hotel strive to always offer our guests the very finest in luxury surroundings and service second-to-none. Approaching our 10th anniversary, we want to ensure that this expansion to our offering delivers a standard of design and comfort not seen before in Saudi Arabia.  We’re very glad to be able to work so closely with HRH Princess Al Anoud in order to deliver a new product to the market which embodies the very best of international design infused with a new interpretation of Arabian culture and tradition.”

Mr. Finamore added, “The new rooms and suites will be by far the largest hotel units in the Kingdom. We are also introducing the Kingdom’s first ever concept spa suite. The Oasis Suite will have dedicated in room spa facilities and has been specially designed with the discerning guest in mind.”
