Default Flight is settled - KSA in July

Have finally got everything sorted and my flight is booked for the 1st July to Riyadh - finally

I'm quite lucky because my employer is organising accommodation for me (us) and has got me a villa in Najd compound. Anybody here have any experience with Najd (amenities etc.)?

I stayed at Najd for 3 weeks and recently moved to Arabian Homes. Have to say that Najd is a bit quiet and mainly families and couples that enjoy staying there. Mainly Germans their and a quite few brits. Didn't have much of a social scene for singletons but it does have 10pin bowling, 1 large swimming pool, pool tables, table tennis, library, tennis court, squash court, basketball court, 1 restaurant (not the best - avoid the Spaghetti Bolognese!) But it isn't a bad place a bit quiet but it is clean and tidy.
