An Haute Hideaway in the Heart of Saudi’s Riyadh

Located in one of Riyadh’s most sought-after districts, the 58-key Jareed Hotel is the Kingdom's inaugural Arabic boutique property.

As Saudi Arabia’s capital city witnesses a collection of novel and outlandish additions to its already glittering skyline, contributing to the Kingdom’s rapid whizzing right past the present and straight into the future, a silent movement silently begins to bubble within the increasingly contemporary world of hospitality, preoccupied with one singular mission – giving Saudi Arabia’s rich history and ancient traditions a resounding voice amidst the uber-modern chatter.

One such member of the noble preservation movement is a quaint 58-key boutique hotel, tucked away in one of Riyad’s most sought-after neighborhoods – Jareed Hotel. Calling Riyadh’s The Boulevard, an outdoor luxury district in the heart of the city, home, the 5-star Jareed Hotel is all about what we like to call ‘haute heritage’ in the form of boutique lodgings.

The central hotel commemorates the Kingdom’s storied past through its name, which refers to the grand palm tree that was once used to build the roofs of local houses, and celebrates its ambitious present by being wholly owned and operated by a luxury Saudi brand – NMR Hospitality.

Offering bespoke services with a dash of traditional Saudi Arabian hospitality, Jareed Hotel helps you curate everything about your stay – from bedding preferences and room scent to a set menu dinner for two and a special occasion room set-up with flowers, food and drink.

While Mornini, their Italian restaurant hailing from New York, and the Jimam Spa, their own spin on rejuvenation, are alluring attractions themselves, the true crowning jewel is perhaps The Living Room – the lavish lounge and where you can sip on some delicious afternoon tea.

From the striking hanging wall art and the arabesque arched doorways to the state-of-the-art gym and spa facilities – Jareed Hotel is as lavish as they come but what really sets it apart is the fact that it never forgets where it came from.
