The Hotel Galleria by Elaf – The Jewel in Jeddah’s Crown


If anyone’s travelled to Jeddah, they would no-doubt recall the sight of the grand hotel, The Hotel Galleria by Elaf, with its decadently ornate Italian markings and awe inspiring glass paneling. This landmark iconic hotel has just been awarded in the category of The Best Luxury Hotel in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for 2020 by International Luxury Lifestyle Awards. 

The stately hotel is located on Tahlia Street, conveniently central to the city’s business hub, lifestyle attractions and bespoke shopping precincts. The grand entrance and exterior of The Hotel Galleria by Elaf are enchanting and awe-inspiring, reminiscent of a royal era. This precedent is clearly matched by the hotel’s interiors – spacious and regal with the finest furnishing and flawless attention to detail. The luxurious styling is offset with pristine Arabian artistry, adding to the glamorous edge and appeal of this sensational hotel. 

With 364 guestrooms, the hotel is well geared for large capacity bookings, whether it be weddings or business conferencing and events. Guests can select from diverse room categories including Deluxe, Executive Deluxe and Delight. To take it up a notch, guest suite selections include Executive, Honeymoon, Princely, Royal and Business. Superlative decor and fittings are always in place in ensuring guests’ supreme comfort. Marble clad bathrooms, limousine on request, shoe shining services and stacked mini bar are some of the outstanding features to look forward to. 

The hotel caters for five different eateries, making allowance for any eventuality and taste preference. Whether it be the Aqua Lounge on the rooftop with a swimming pool overlooking the eccentric city; the Bird Cage – artfully suspended between two towers within the hotel. Plush and decadent as it is, serving equally indulgent sweet confectionary. Cafe Milano is their brilliant Italian restaurant (who doesn’t love Italian?!); The Kitchens is an exciting large scale and spacious restaurant with live kitchens where diners can engage with their meal, serving up a fresh international menu for all palates. Finally, Vaquero is their exclusive steakhouse, and arguably the best in the entire city. Grilled to perfection, the steaks are preserved in rooms with Himalayan salt walls and glass panels – a sign of serious expertise. 

Elaf group President Mr. Ziyad Bin Mahfouz, responds to winning this award “It is with great pride that we accept this monumental award, bestowed by the Luxury Lifestyle Awards. We humbly thank our loyal guests and staff for making this possible”.
