Great place. Has all it takes for 5 star hotel and more. Private beach, big pool, squash and tennis court, hot sauna with cold water dip (rare in hotels) and hot Jacuzzi. Perfect staff, what else can you ask for?

Great place at secluded location (in a good sense). Very good service, clean rooms, helpful staff, excellent location. I would certainly return and would recommend to all. Across the street from Palace, next door to Hyatt, all stone throw away.

Dear Trip Advisor Member, warm greetings from Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana. Regarding your first question, indeed breakfast and dinner is included in the half board meal package. Which brings me to your second question, during the breakfast tea & coffee as well as juices from the buffet are included, during dinner water, soft drinks and selected juices are included. Further, the gym, beach, pool and kids club are for our guests, who are staying in the hotel, free of charge. However, please be informed that watersports, fitness classes and Spa treatments are available for additional fees. Finally, currently there is ongoing development near by the hotel. Please be informed that this development is not related to the hotel, hence, we do not have any influence on it and do not know whether it will be completed by March. However, you can be assured that we are doing our best to create relaxing experiences for our guests at all times. Kind regards, Lisa Rengshausen Guest Services Manager

Hello, is there a pool bar?
Dear Trip Advisor Member, warm greetings from Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana. Please allow me to inform you that we do have a pool bar, which is serving non-alcoholic food and beverages. At this point we would like to take the opportunity to inform you further that “Rayhaan” is a brand of Rotana which restores the values of the contemporary Arabian culture, hence we are not serving any kind of alcohol in the hotel and we hope that this would give you a clearer understanding of the matter. Nevertheless, we have created healthy options in replacement of this specific aspect and we are committed to delivering the highest standards of service in other areas. If you should have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Kind regards, Lisa Rengshausen Guest Services Manager

Hi! There might be an option to add this as extra later in the booking process - after feeling ur details in, but prior to payment details. Or just email them for the quote. We never had HB or FB.. to have flexibility and explore the city. Cheers, IB
