The best hotel views on the Arabian Peninsula
There’s a lot to be said for a room with a view – whether it’s of beautiful turquoise waters and sandy beaches, stunning skyscrapers or the bright lights of the city down below.

In fact, the view from your room can be one of the most memorable parts of your stay.

But don’t just leave it down to chance.

If you’re travelling to the Middle East this year, take a look at this list of the best hotel sights on the Arabian Peninsula. Whichever city you’re visiting, there’s guaranteed to be a room with a view waiting for you at a Hilton hotel.

The Persian Gulf from the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort


If you’re travelling to Dubai, the place to be for a stunning view of the Persian Gulf from the comfort of your hotel room is the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort.

Located at the heart of the stylish Dubai Marina, this resort’s rooms and suites overlook the pristine waters of the Persian Gulf or the iconic marina architecture.

Wake up to spectacular views of un-spoilt white sands and then head downstairs for a relaxing morning on the resort’s private beach, which is exclusively for Hilton guests.

Indulge yourself in a King Corner Alcove Room with a sea view and you’ll have panoramic views of the Persian Gulf from floor to ceiling. And if you’re in Dubai on business, working in a King Executive Suite with a sea view will be the most memorable office you’ve ever worked in.

The Kaaba from the Makkah Hilton Hotel


Alternatively, staying at the Makkah Hilton Hotel will put you right at the heart of the Holy City with spectacular views of the city, the Holy Haram and the Kaaba from your room.

Wake up to views of the most significant city in Islam and then pray in one of its two air-conditioned 20,000 seat prayer halls with views over the Holy Haram.

Choose an executive room on one of the hotel’s top floors and you’ll get remarkable city views along with high speed internet access, free breakfasts and complimentary parking to enhance the luxury of your stay.

The Kingdom Tower from Hilton Garden Inn Riyadh Olaya


The Kingdom Tower is the second tallest building in Saudi Arabia at an incredible 992 feet. Known for its iconic SkyBridge which offers panoramic views of the city below, the Kingdom Tower is a sight to behold in itself.

In fact, it can be seen from all over the city and the Hilton Garden Inn Riyadh Olaya. Stay here in a spacious Deluxe Evolution Room or two-bedroom suite and you’ll be guaranteed city views of Saudi Arabia’s tallest skyscrapers.

The Red Sea from the Jeddah Hilton


Situated on the world’s largest peninsula, Saudi Arabia has some amazing views along its coastline. But it’s not all about the Persian Gulf. Head to the west coast and you’ll discover the wonders of the Red Sea, which can be seen directly from the Jeddah Hilton.

Enjoy unique views from your own private balcony or through your full-length windows and then go for a relaxing swim in the paradisiacal outdoor pool – it’s surrounded by palm trees, has sea views and is absolutely heavenly.

But don’t miss out on other incredible sights by staying at the hotel all day – head along the coast to King Fahd’s Fountain (or the Jeddah Fountain) for one of Jeddah’s most well-known landmarks. It’s the tallest fountain of its type in the world and jets water 1,024 feet out of the Red Sea.

It’s a particularly special sight when it’s illuminated at night but this is just one of the most impressive hotel views on the Arabian Peninsula.

Hilton Hotels can be found in all the Middle East’s top locations so if you’ve stayed in one of our hotel rooms somewhere else with a particularly spectacular view, let us know!
