This room is part of an elegant hotel lobby which actually seems more like a lovely intimate living room in someone’s home. From what I have been told, the Qasr Al-Sharq Hotel was originally built as a private residence for a Saudi prince and his wives and children, however by the time the construction was complete, his family had grown by leaps and bounds and the building was too small to accommodate them all. So now this is the home of this gorgeous and opulent hotel, which is part of the Waldorf-Astoria Collection. I haven’t been lucky enough to stay overnight here yet, but I did spend an afternoon as a guest in the amazing women’s spa which occupies the penthouse floor of the hotel which is located on the Corniche right on the Red Sea here in Jeddah. The Spa by Clarins is an exclusive full-service ladies health club, with an amazing view of the expansive turquoise blue sea. To read more about the spa and the hotel and to see more photos, please see the post “A Day at the Spa,” that I wrote on my other blog, Susie’s Big Adventure.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
