The opening of Mondrian Riyadh Al Malga will mark the brand’s debut in the city and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Bringing a unique lifestyle hospitality experience to the Kingdom’s capital, Mondrian Riyadh Al Malga Hotel and Residences will boast 200 keys, including 130 standard rooms and suites, with 25 one-bedroom, 35 two-bedroom, and ten three-bedroom serviced apartments. The hotel will pioneer innovative culinary and mixology experiences in the Kingdom with three new restaurants and lounges by Ennismore’s in-house F&B concept studio, Carte Blanched. It will also be home to generous event spaces and state-of-the-art social wellness spaces, paving the way for Mondrian’s progressive programming.
Defined by ground-breaking design, Mondrian’s oversized imagination will be brought to life in Riyadh by visionary designer and international award-winning interior architect Tristan Di Plessis, whose portfolio includes some of the most spoken-about hospitality destinations around the world. The hotel and development will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified – constructed with a focus on energy savings, water efficiency, reduced carbon emissions and improved indoor air quality.
Mondrian hotels are always at the heart of the world’s most exciting cultural scenes. The Mondrian Riyadh Al Malga Hotel and Residences will be developed as part of the mixed-use Al Malga Urban Village, with residents and visitors alike able to enjoy the vibrant boutique retail, dining, entertainment, and leisure scene. Located in the northern part of Riyadh, the Al Malga neighbourhood is at the entrance of the recently announced 400-metre-high cube-shaped skyscraper Mukaab as part of the capital’s Murabba downtown plan. The incredible development will be a tourism and cultural destination, including entertainment, dining, and retail, and will have an almost full-height atrium space that will contain a spiralling tower. The new Mondrian will also benefit from easy access to Boulevard Riyadh, home to high-profile events and concerts, Najd Village, and King Abdullah Financial District, allowing guests to fully immersive themselves in the culture of the city.
In development with owner Olayan Financing Company (OFC), Mondrian Riyadh Al Malga is set to open in 2026. Looking to build on their unique and strategic partnership, Ennismore and OFC are jointly planning future projects to bring more Ennismore lifestyle brands to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Mondrian’s global expansion shows no signs of slowing down with a pipeline of 17 hotels and branded residences, including upcoming openings in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bordeaux, Ibiza, Cannes, Dubai, Gold Coast Australia, and Abu Dhabi, adding to its existing portfolio of seven open hotels including Mexico City, London, LA, and Doha.
Mondrian Riyadh will also be Ennismore’s first hotel in the Riyadh, making it a significant milestone for the company’s growth in the Middle East.
