Looking out for a place to stay? Anyone? Well, this might just be your lucky day then. I will be discussing endless advantages of living in a residential compound. You heard it, right fellows, when it comes to settling down, the residential compound is the best decision you can ever come up with. Let me now come to the never ending benefits of a residential compound. Recommended: 10 Things to do in Western Compounds of Saudi Arabia
In search of some privacy? Then let me inform you that the compound is an entirely set of villas/apartments that are surrounded by high walls, barbed wires, and armed gunmen.
Want to taste some freedom? Then this is just the place for you. Saudi expats experience a lot of enjoyment here of all sorts; life inside the compound means total freedom. Most westerns over here live on large resort-like compounds where there is no one to tell you how to dress up.
Feel like wearing shorts or bikini and going for a swim? Well, that’s totally up to you then! This area is that one place where none of the mutawwa’s (religious policemen) will be coming around and telling you what to do When I say no restrictions I mean it. They cannot bother the residents but outside the compound premises, rules are supposed to be strictly followed as there are no compensations for that since rules are rules and everyone has to abide by them.

Transportation is arranged for residents planning to go for shopping as there are buses hired for them. Not only shopping but transportation is provided for children studying in major schools and as far as kids are concerned, compounds have on-site pre-school for them which makes working conditions easier for the parents.
Freedom of dressing up: Women are allowed to move freely in the compound without an abaya or a hijab.
Facilities: There are also never ending facilities present for the residents be it in terms of fitness, family hangouts or everyday grocery shopping. There is a basketball court, tennis court, gym, swimming pool, bowling alley, golf course, a function hall, mini supermarket and even recreational departments which organize fun activities to keep all the residents entertained. I mean what else do you even need?
Residential Compound is an expensive option in Saudi Arabia: On the other hand compounds can be a bit expensive but in search of a place to live, do not get attracted towards cheap rated houses where you won’t feel contended since the entire package of residential compound does come with never ending benefits and you wouldn’t want to go somewhere else and then regret later now do you? Just for your extra knowledge allowances play a major part of one’s employment contract negotiation, so be quite sure before you pick up that pen so that you don’t have to pay a huge percentage of your salary on housing and hidden expenses. A must read in before signing the contract is “Factors to consider before signing a contract” So if you ever plan to live in a residential compound or shift here since you just got tempted, make sure you get your name noted down because there is quite a long list waiting there.
