TRAVEL FIT : Workout and relax in Al Mashreq Hotel Riyadh

Do you like to keep fit while “on the road” and choosing accommodation depending on the hotel fitness, or spa facilities ?

Have you been also wondering, why hotel booking sites and hotel pages contains so little or non-existent informations and photos from their fitness facilities?

Yes, you are not alone! I am not an olympic athlete by any means, but enjoy de-stressing cardio session or few lifts after long day at work or just little “top up” during beach vacation.

That’s why I have decided to review gyms in every hotel I am staying in and help you find and recommend ( or not ) a gym while travelling.

Al Mashreq is a boutique hotel centrally located in Riyadh, the capitol of Saudi Arabia.

It almost appears as a little oasis with rich Arabic decor, palm trees and water fountains. Unfortunately the rooms don’t live up to the expectations, but the Spa and Fitness are very good.

Overview :

Spa and Gym are in the basement of the hotel. The facilities are intimate, nicely decorated and tranquil.

Everything is very clean, with complimentary toiletries, water and small snacks. Bathrobes, towels and flip flops are free to use and placed in every locker.

Equipment 9/10 :

Most of the fitness machines are American made Freemotion Equipment. All in good condition and operational.

There is a machine pretty much for every muscle part of the body, smith machine, two benches and variety of cardio equipment. Free weights are up to 45kg.

The only down point is the size of the gym. If there is only few people, it already feels busy. Fortunately it’s only used only by the hotel guests or few locals hiring PT. ( also available in the the gym for a fee )





Facilities 9/10 :

From gym, indoor lap pool, massages to sauna and steam room. The hotel has it all. Ideal place to unwind and relax after intense workout session.

  • Fully equipped Gym
  • Indoor lap pool
  • Jacuzzi
  • Sauna
  • Steam room
  • Hammam ( Extra Fee )
  • Massage  ( Extra Fee )
  • Personal Trainer ( Extra Fee )

Verdict 9/10 :

Great facilities for working out and relaxing. Spa and Gym at Al Mashreq Hotel is providing peaceful, luxurious and private experience with all the amenities and service.
