A luxurious landmark in the heart of the capital city, Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh remains an architectural icon in Riyadh’s skyline, occupying the 30th to 48th floors of Kingdom Centre.
This summer, guests can enjoy the newly redesigned rooms and suites as the hotel has recently completed the first stage of its refurbishment project.
The vision for the hotel’s redesign was to inject an influence of Saudi heritage and traditions while maintaining the hotel’s contemporary style and first-class service.
Led by renowned hospitality design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates, the result reflects the city’s understated charm.
A place for every season
Inspired by the meaning of Riyadh, which translates as “garden”, the newly redesigned guest rooms and suites boast two distinctive colour palettes. Vivid shades of green and turquoise set the tone through the carpets, custom wall coverings and handmade accessories crafted by local artisans.
Decorative walls incorporate historic tribal patterns engraved in wood – a recurring motif found in the bespoke closet wall coverings and the sliding window panels that connect the bathroom with the bedroom.
The tufted wall panellings are upholstered in stitched leather, further adding to the air of luxurious refinement.
Each newly designed room and suite is the ultimate in modern elegance and style, a place for guests to relax and rejuvenate. They are as inviting as they are homely with high-end furnishings and indulgent linens and upholstery.
The cutting-edge in-room technology, lighting, and entertainment facilities, such as automated curtains and lighting systems, iPads, smart TVs, Bose Bluetooth speakers, and smart makeup mirrors, complete this stunning interior.
Another important aspect of the new design is the use of artworks throughout the accommodations. Reflecting the quality of local craftsmanship, these artworks have been curated together with the philanthropic foundation Alwaleed Philanthropies, chaired by HRH Prince Alwaleed bin Talal.
“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,” says Guenter Gebhard, general manager at Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh.
“Our new look, combined with our team’s warm hospitality and Lead With Care health and safety program, offers an authentic and safe luxury experience for guests unlike any other in the city.”
