Check in to these two Ascott hotels in Al Khobar
Whether you’re a party of one, two or looking to have family time with your little ones, there’s a hotel for you in Khobar…
Calm. Serene. Refreshing. Al Khobar, the recreational hub of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, is part of the ‘triplet cities’ that include Dammam and Dhahran and sits dazzled on the eastern coastline of the Persian Gulf.
Towards the north, picturesque gardens adorn the city, breathing life to the iconic skyscrapers. To the south, the city is naturally ornamented with beaches that offer pulsating experiences for amateur divers, picnic goers, evening strollers, and entertainment lovers.
If you’re looking to take a brief relaxing respite, here are two properties by The Ascott Limited you can head to for a well-deserved local getaway. Check out the sweet deals that the hotels are offering, too.

The 16-storey tower includes 139 stylishly appointed one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments adorned with an earthy colour palette and contemporarily furnished spaces.

Even better, the ground floor sprawls over buzzy open-plan spaces, a swimming pool ideal for a refreshing dip to start a new day, and a fully equipped gym to pump you up for a good workout.
