Tuwaiq Palace is a prominent landmark in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, and is known as a place where many government events, official receptions, and cultural festivals are hosted. The palace also plays a vital role in promoting Saudi culture in a global community, and its inviting atmosphere brings a touch of contemporary lifestyle to an authentic Arab environment.
Tuwaiq Palace contains 24,000 square meters of dining areas, lounges, and entertainment spaces. You can find social facilities like a bowling alley, billiards, tennis, squash, library and many more. It is also an ideal place to host parties and weddings for anyone looking for a unique setting in an oasis.
Structurally, Tuwaiq Palace is a unique blend of classical and modern designs, a great contrast with modern buildings across the kingdom. In 1981, the architectural design was a winning concept in an international competition made possible thanks to the successful collaboration between Omrania, Frei Auto, and Borough Happold. The construction of the Tuwaiq Palace, implemented by the Arriyadh Development Authority, began in 1985, and the building would end up winning the Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 1998.
