Nobu Hotel Riyadh

From Las Vegas to… Riyadh. Nobu Hotels—the popular hotel concept launched by world-famous chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Robert DeNiro—continues its global expansion with a new hotel opening in the Saudi Arabian capital. Slated to debut in mid-May 2015, the Nobu Hotel Riyadh is housed in a 23-storey glass skyscraper on King Fahd Road in the financial district.

The 134 rooms and suites were designed by the Rockwell Group with both local and Japanese accents, like Cherry blossom motifs. Amenities include Nobu’s signature hot tea welcome upon arrival, smart technology, Natura Bissé toiletries, and luxurious beds topped with Rivolta Carmignani linens. Perks for hotel guests include VIP access to Nobu restaurant and the in-room mini bar curated by chef Nobu.
