Since ancient times, generosity and hospitality are ingrained in most Arabs, two qualities that are closely linked to each other. The inhabitants of the agricultural areas used to honour their guests and passers-by with the choicest fruits from their farms and gardens, while the inhabitants of the desert used to welcome them with the best livestock that they raised.
We hear many stories about Arab generosity, such as the one about the owner of a house who, to honour his guests, did not hesitate to slaughter his last sheep. As the proverb “Generosity comes from giving whatever you have” goes, then let us describe to you a small part of our welcoming arrangements to honour our guests at the Shaza Riyadh Hotel.
As soon as you set foot in Shaza Riyadh you will feel that you have entered a rich oasis thanks to the lavish ambience in which we receive our guests with a warm and gracious welcome. Our reception team will expedite the check-in process while serving you genuine Arabic coffee and the finest dates, just as our ancestors used to do when welcoming their guests.
Smiling faces and friendly offers of help will meet you on your way to your room where the one who attends to your service will help you unpack your travel bags, one of the many welcoming touches we have prepared to make your stay a matchless experience, including perfuming your room with the distinctive fragrance that carries our identity embodied in the ceramic scent which we present to you as a gift so that you always carry fragrant memories of your stay with us.
We also provide you with a pillow menu that guarantees you a high level of luxury and comfort, such as the reversible bath robes that give you the option of choosing which side to wear. For ladies we have prepared an accessories bag complete with hair ties, make-up remover and other necessities, while for our young guests there are colouring books to keep them quietly occupied. In addition, we have prepared for you a printed shopping list to make you feel that you are in your second home, so you can choose whatever items you want and we will provide them from supermarkets within two hours to ensure your kitchen is always well stocked with food and equipped with the best utensils and modern devices to cook whatever you want.
As well as these little touches of typical Shaza hospitality, we offer you an excellent choice of fine dining options. For authentic Levantine cuisine, there is the MeNa restaurant on the ground floor, or you can enjoy an appetizing snack in the Garden View Café. If you prefer not to dine out, our in-room dining menu offers you a choice of tasty specialities round the clock, so do not hesitate to call and order your delicious meal whenever you like.
