Shaza Riyadh unveils New Year staycation offer

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.

ITC launches 5G standalone network for enterprise customers
  • ITC is the first operator in the Kingdom to launch a 5G standalone (SA) network
  • Aims to provide cutting-edge fixed wireless access (FWA) services to enterprise customers

Integrated Telecom Company (ITC), a provider of telecom and ICT services, has soft-launched its 5G wireless network service in Saudi Arabia, with the aim of providing cutting-edge fixed wireless access (FWA) services to enterprise customers.

ITC is the first operator in the Kingdom to launch a 5G standalone (SA) network — the latest version of 5G, which works fully on a 5G core network without the use of any legacy (4G or earlier) technologies. Essentially, it is pure 5G end-to-end.

The launch is part of ITC’s commitment to the digital transformation of industry verticals such as oil and gas, education, healthcare, IoT, gaming, and entertainment in the Kingdom. ITC has a wider deployment plan of FWA services across the Kingdom, delivered in stages, with various new services and applications.

“This new service is another milestone for ITC to address growing market demand in areas that lack fiber coverage and lead in a new generation of service offerings enabled by 5G,” said Osama Al-Dosary, CEO of ITC.

He added: “We appreciate the enablement the CITC has given for this initiative, which is in line with the Kingdom’s digital transformation and increasing internet coverage objectives, moving us closer toward the realization of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.”
