Shaza Madinah marks a decade of hospitality excellence


Shaza Madinah is the Travellers’ Choice Hotel for the year 2020 on TripAdvisor 

United Arab Emirates, Dubai: Shaza Madinah, the 5-star luxury hotel situated next to Al Masjid Al Nabawi, has completed a decade of excellence in hospitality on December 10th, 2020.  Serving millions of Madinah visitors throughout the years, Shaza Madinah is the first hotel under Shaza portfolio in the region and has just won the “Travellers’ Choice” award from TripAdvisor for consistently earning great reviews by Travellers and being ranked among the top 10% properties on the global platform.

Given the fact that the scenery of tourism and hospitality has transformed significantly during the last decade, Shaza Madinah has successfully affirmed its leading position in Madinah redefining the meaning of authentic Arabian hospitality.

From 10.5 million visitors in 2010 to 15.5 million visitors in 2019, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is keen to improve its ranking among the most visited destinations on the global tourism map with a vision to attract more than 100 million by the year 2030. This has not just created an industry shift in hospitality but set an additional motive for pioneers to excel.

The calming decorations and calligraphy that adorn each corner of Shaza Madinah were artistically inspired by the rich cultures of various nations along the Silk Route to provide guests with luxury and absolute serenity while visiting Madinah and spending quality time with their families.

Amjad Irshaidat, the General Manager at Shaza Madinah, commented, “In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we take this opportunity to reconfirm our commitment towards excellence driven by the core values of Shaza Hotels. Shaza Values are Generosity, Respect, Pride, Engagement, Awareness, and Creativity. We breathe these values in everything that we do, particularly by the leadership. Alongside many distinguished services we provide at Shaza Madinah, we are well-regarded for offering the most elegant rooms in the city, and that has enabled us to winning the Travellers’ Choice award from TripAdvisor.”
