The Pantry gives guests access to everything they need without having to leave the hotel.
In the morning, guests can start their day with a healthy and sumptuous breakfast – free of cost – along with their preferred choice of tea or coffee – available throughout the day.
The Social, a restaurant that serves meticulously curated international cuisines to cater to different tastes, is the ideal spot for guests to hang out at in the evenings with friends and others. Free drinks and snacks are available as well.
Wellness and fitness enthusiasts can work out at the health club or take a walk in the evening at the corniche. A seafront shopping promenade is only a 10-minute drive away.
Mark A. Allaf, regional general manager of IHG Hotels and Resorts, said: “Alkhobar is one of the main markets of IHG Hotels and Resorts, and Saudi Arabia is of strategic importance to our growth in the region.”
