Shaza Riyadh, a luxury five-star hotel and residences situated next to the iconic Al-Rajhi Grand Mosque in the capital, has unveiled a staycation offer to mark the New Year.

Aiming to create memories and bring joy to families, the “It’s Time” offer rewards guests with 25 percent off on room rates and 20 percent off on dining and spa for bookings for two nights and above. Valid for stays from Jan. 5 to March 31, the staycation package also offers free dining for children below 12 while staying with their parents. This can be claimed for confirmed bookings via Shaza Hotels’ official website using the promo code “TIME.”

Recently named Saudi Arabia’s “Leading Hotel Residences 2020,” Shaza Riyadh is a contemporary resampling of the Andalusian charm where each detail of its calming interiors and architecture is inspired by the vibrant colors and motifs of various cultures along the legendary Silk Route.

Andre Saade, general manager at Shaza Riyadh Hotel Residences, said: “We have always been keen to offer our guests unique experiences, and now, it is time to reward our guests with this new initiative that ushers in a new dawn for our journeys.”

The hotel management company, Shaza Hotels, is dedicated to offering true Arabian hospitality inspired by the traditions and cultures of various countries along the Silk Route. These cultures and traditions are reflected by the elegant Middle Eastern style décor and serene ambiance offered by its properties.

Shaza Hotels has four operational hotels in the Middle East — Shaza Makkah in the holy city, the multiple award-winning Shaza Al-Madina, the newly opened Shaza Riyadh and the flagship hotel under the “Mysk by Shaza” brand, Mysk Al-Mouj in Muscat. The brand is rapidly expanding with the opening this year of the Sharjah Collection, followed by Shaza Doha, Shaza Salalah and Mysk The Palm in Dubai. Shaza is a member of Global Hotel Alliance (GHA), the world’s largest alliance of independent hotel brands.

Considering the COVID-19 situation, LuLu scaled down the launch event to include a smaller pool of performances and limited guest capacity and with strict observation of social distancing practices. 

Ambassador Sayeed said: “Food security is an important dimension of the bilateral relations between India and Saudi Arabia. Even during the peak of COVID-19, the supply chains have been maintained between both countries. In this context, LuLu Group has played a very positive role in making available all Indian products, including rice, fruits and vegetables, to the Kingdom during this period. I am very pleased to note that LuLu Group is opening new outlets in different parts of the Kingdom, which is an indication of its popularity among the local population.” 

For the Indian festival, LuLu has flown in more than 7,000 products in different categories, from fresh fruits and vegetables to meat, and traditional wear like sarees and churidars. Moreover, LuLu is offering a range of freshly prepared hot foods, from biryanis to curries, popular street foods, traditional sweets, and many more delicacies.

Mohammed said: “We have always taken pride in showcasing the beauty and diversity of Indian culture through a festival like this. LuLu imports goods worth SR200 million ($53.3 million) through its offices across India every year. This is our humble tribute to the glorious tradition, food and offerings of India, which have been widely popular among the Kingdom’s population comprising more than 200 nationalities. This is also our initiative to bind together all communities for a common interest, which is through food, fashion, film and tourism.” 

LuLu, which has its own food processing plants and sourcing offices in India, has exerted massive efforts to introduce a new range of products, featuring organic, low-fat, gluten-free and many more diet-based food options in store that are popular with health-conscious shoppers.
