Saudia City – Jeddah Compounds

saudia city

Saudia City is the largest compound in size in Jeddah by far. Their extensive facilities include two kindergartens, a daycare, gas station (!), and cinema under construction etc. And its beautiful open green park in this scale is like no other.  The location is also something to be mentioned having direct access to the King Rd, Price Sultan Rd and Rawdah St. On top of that, utilities are free! With all this said, the price is reasonable for the unit size and facilities due to the fact that the compound is quite old. 


It is so large that it is common for the residents to get around within the compound by car. Swimming pools are inside the recreational club houses. Probably the only compound in Jeddah that has a supermarket not just a mini-market. 

Where is Saudia City?

In Khalidiyah district. Access available from King Rd, Prince Sultan Rd and Rawdah St!  (King Rd and Sultan Rd are probably the most important roads in Jeddah and Rawdah St is connecting those two roads which is considered the downtown area.)

  • I lived in Saudia City from 1999-2012, I grew up there roaming the huge compound with my bike and having friends from different nationalities, I will never forget the times I grew up there. My father worked for Saudia airlines and as an expat like other expats who lived in SV City that time went to school at AISJ then known as “SAIS”-Saudi Arabian Intl School. I lived at the end of the golden age of the compound, the golden age of the compound was the 1980s-1990s where it was dominated by Americans and the compound was like the little America of Jeddah, I lived there with few of those Americans remaining at that time. I went to playgroup at the compound and would never the Water Tawer, Shawarma stall, Star Market, Baseball court (built by the Americans during the golden age of the compound), bus park (next to the baseball field, the buses were used to transport expat kids to school in AISJ back then), the mosque in NE area, cricket field, tennis courts, and many more iconic places in the compound. It is a very legendary compound of Jeddawis who are expats. And I wish to go back there one time

  • I lived in Saudia City for ten years from 1976 until 1986 working with facilities Maintenance for Saudi Arabian Airlines. In those days the Saudi City was used exclusivly for airline staff and maintenance workers. As part of a design team I suggested a design using the airline colors at the top off the tower. My wife joined me after I was there a month and some of my children later came over to spend a few years and attented Parents Cooperative school. I enjoyed my time there and all of the Saudi and various expat friends that I met. Thank you Saudia.
    I retired from my plumbing business and now work as an author. See my Historical Novels Beyond the Bitter Sea and Beyond the Gates of Ani available on
