Jeddah has no shortage of luxury seafront hotels with modern design inspired by Arab culture. If you’re looking to book a room for your next visit or want to indulge in a lavish experience, read on to discover Savoir Flair’s edit of the most stylish luxury hotels in Jeddah.
One of the most strategically located hotels in Jeddah, Assila Hotel is situated right in the center of Al Tahlia, the city’s premiere shopping district. This sleek and sophisticated hotel is Rocco Forte Hotels group’s first endeavor into the Middle East, and sister hotel to the popular Hotel de Russie in Rome and Brown’s Hotel in London.
Designed by Martin Brudnizki and Olga Polizzi, Assila celebrates Arabian culture, craftsmanship, and – most importantly – art. The contemporary hotel houses over 2,000 original artworks by Saudi artists, so walking through its halls feels like browsing through an art gallery. It is also home to five restaurants, including Jeddah’s first Argentinian steakhouse Pampas and popular rooftop lounge Aubergine.

The Ritz-Carlton Jeddah
The recently opened Ritz-Carlton Jeddah is set along Al Hamra Corniche. It overlooks the Red Sea and boasts breathtaking views of the iconic King Fahd’s Fountain, which is the tallest of its type in the world. This grand hotel celebrates traditional Arabic design with a modern twist, creating the perfect balance between old and new. With 224 rooms, Ritz-Carlton Jeddah is furnished in a desert-inspired palette accentuated with rich textures, dark wood finishes, and crystal chandeliers.
Visitors can also enjoy a memorable dining experience at Reyhana, an upscale restaurant that incorporates regionally sourced ingredients into its seasonal menu.
