Enjoy modern architectural marvels set against the lush backdrop of this desert oasis at our hotels in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia. You’re never far from miles of beaches, world-class shopping and man-made wonders like the Corniche walkway.
Guests at our hotels in Al Khobar are close to pristine beaches like the gracefully arcing shoreline at Half Moon Bay. You’re also near the lively marina and sports facilities at King Fahd Coastal Town. Once a quiet fishing village on the Persian Gulf, Al Khobar burst onto the modern scene with the discovery of oil and the city still resonates with the excitement of its transformation. From our hotels in Al Khobar, take in beautifully manicured public spaces like the sweeping Corniche walkway, where you can stroll amid palm trees and gaze at the city’s monumental architecture against a blue-sky backdrop. At night the city is aglow with glittering lights.
The castle-like Al Rashid Mall is the largest mall in Saudi Arabia and the primary destination for shoppers buying gifts from natural oils to gourmet coffee. It’s a great spot to sample Middle Eastern cuisine and watch the passing parade of shoppers. Our Al Khobar hotels are near Dhahran Street, a popular section of town, where boutiques offer lavish jewelry and ornately patterned fabrics. As you window shop, you’ll be tempted by the irresistible aromas of succulent chicken kebabs and lamb roasts sizzling on nearby grills.
Book a room at our Holiday Inn® Al Khobar hotels in November, May or June when breezes cool the city and invite you to ramble outdoors, but any time of year is right for a stay. Bring the family: Al Khobar is a kid-friendly city where a top attraction is Kids’ Castle, a fairyland of amusements.
Holiday Inn Resort Half Moon Bay is a good-value choice for your sunshine break. Ask our helpful staff about special rates including breakfast, lunch and dinner at Blue Beach Restaurant or the poolside Blue Lagoon Cafe.
