New Mondrian Riyadh Al Malga Hotel and Residences to redefine luxury hospitality experience, designed by Benoy
The new resort is set to open in 2026
16th May 2023, Newark – global master planner and architecture firm Benoy, is pleased to announce the launch of the Mondrian Riyadh Al Malga Hotel and Residences, a unique lifestyle hospitality experience located in the heart of the Al Malga Village, which includes residential, retail, and workplace elements. Benoy designed the hotel and is leading the facade and interior design of the mall, working closely with Omrania, the lead consultant on the wider scheme.
The Mondrian Riyadh Al Malga Hotel and Residences will boast 200 keys, including 130 standard rooms and suites, as well as 25 one-bedroom, 35 two-bedroom, and ten three-bedroom serviced apartments. On the gastronomy side, the innovative culinary and mixology experiences at three brand-new restaurants will be offering a tantalising array of flavours from international cuisines. Guests will be welcomed to immerse themselves in ultimate relaxation with state-of-the-art social wellness spaces. The hotel is also home to generous event spaces, perfect for hosting luxurious events.
Zaynib Khan, Senior Associate Director at Benoy, said, “We wanted to bring something bold and sculptural to this scheme. The hotel’s innovative design resonates with the brand’s core values, celebrating an expansive imagination. A stimulating facade of bronze-like louvres sweeps around the building, forming a dynamic wrap that exposes public dining spaces and landscaped terraces. The hotel plays a vital role in creating a new cultural scene within the Al Malga Village proposal, acting as a beacon for visitors and customers.”
The Mondrian Riyadh Al Malga Hotel and Residences will be developed as part of the mixed-use Al Malga Urban Village, offering residents and visitors alike access to a vibrant boutique retail, dining, entertainment, and leisure scene. Developed in partnership with owner Olayan Financing Company (OFC), the hotel is set to open in 2026.
Benoy is proud to be a part of this ground-breaking project and looks forward to continuing to bring bold and innovative designs to the hospitality industry.
