A Hotelier's Guide to Abha

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 22, 2006

Abha Palace Hotel is a Five Star De Luxe Hotel in Abha, Assir Province. The climate is cool all year round which is quite suprising considering it is part of Sausi Arabia. Again, you would be suprise to find out that there is no desert in this part of the Arabian Peninsula. All you could see is rugged and pristine mountain teeming with wildlife including herds of baboon freely roaming in the highway. To be clear, Abha is Saudi Arabia's best kept secret to the world. Abha Palace Hotel is the best kept secret jewel of Abha. Abha Palace Hotel is owned by the National Company of Tourism and was managed by Rosewood Hotel for quite some time but I am not quite sure if it still the managing company. But for a traveler, Abha is the place to be for nature lover and those who always wanted to be suprise. The hotel can make itinerary uniquely Assir, meaning, they have access to all other resorts in the area operated by the mother company. Picture this, wake up each morning and take your breakfast at the Restaurant which is an eye pleaser in itself, and not to mention the superb food. Then ride a cable car at the back of the Hotel to the so-called Green Mountain for lunch. Why is it called Green Mountain? Well, the whole mountain is illuminated by Green lights!!! at night. Dinner at the Nahran. What so special about Nahran? Well, food is one, the problem with Abha Palace Hotel is that they are very generous with it comes to their buffet. I went to Trident Hotel and was depressed by their buffet. The price is around 20-25% cheaper than Abha but it was not even close to half of what were offered at Abha. The atmosphere is relax at Nahran. But the main atttraction at Nahran of Abha Palace is the view, all glass wall to catch the view of Abha City below and the majestic lake Saad. Yes, Virginia, there is a lake in Abha and it was created solely for Abha Palace.

Unique Quality: Great View, it is at Abha Palace. You are actually given two choices upon check in and it is two choices alone- lake view or mountain view. The rooms are spacious and immaculately prepared. I had this conversation with one pharmaceutical executive who said that the standard hotel in Abha Palace Palace is like an upgraded room inother five star hotel in Saudi Arabia. The most expensive suite is comprable to the most expensive Suite in the New York area. Abha Palace Hotel has all the amenities and much more. The Health Club or sports club is the best that I have seen so far. Jacuzzi, spa, swedish steam bath etc., they have it and have they do. All gymn equipment are state of the art. They have masseurs and the shower room is amazing. Table Tennis has a seperate room, as well as billiard, AMF equip bowling lane which so immmaculately perfect. To top it all, there is an L-shaped swmming pool under the hotel which is heated and was actually carved out of the mountain to let sunshine in. I almost forgot, I fail to state beforehand that the Hotel structure was carved into the mountain that is why there a lot of suprised on it lay-out. A tennis court was in the middle of a garden and 20 meters below the swimming pool level. There is also a theme park right next to the hotel. I learned that King Abdullah, Prince Sultan and other members the Saudi royal family stays only in Abha Palace when they are the Assir Region. Abha Palace long list of guest includes, Prince Charles, then US Secretary of State Madeline Albright. Trident Hotel is no matched to Abha Palace.

Directions: It is beside Prince Sultan College and the National Company for Tourism
