Shaza Hotels is an intimate family of hotels across the Middle East. Shaza Hotels were established with a strong inspiration from the glorious indulgent past of the ancient Silk Road. The stories of a melting pot of cultures and traditions combined with the aim to create something new, like the trade routes along the Silk Road, have inspired Shaza’s vision of coming together to serve its guests with the contemporary luxury experience which we see today.
Shaza, in essence, translates to ‘fragrance’. The hotel has successfully established itself as a fresh breath of air among the upscale hotel community. Taking its inspiration from the olden days of Arabia, Shaza aims to not only satisfy, but delight. Like its name, the hotel’s services and reputation have spread far and wide, being a treat for the senses and delighting all that it touches. Shaza pleases its guests in a similar way by treating them to unparalleled indulgence and luxury to ensure a memorable experience for all.
