Three new restaurants, a lounge and a café are among the F&B offerings expected in a new hotel currently being developed by Saudi Arabian real estate company Jabal Omar Development Firm in the holy city of Makkah.
It is set to be managed by Abu Dhabi Capital Group’s hotel management company H Hospitality Collection.
The hotel is due to welcome its first guests by the beginning of 2020 and is part of the Jabal Omar mega-development, with a total built-up area of over 2 million square metres, featuring residences, hotels, malls, retails amenities, prayer areas and other facilities.
H Hospitality Collection chairman Fadel Al Ali said in a statement: “We are delighted with this new project that perfectly complements our expansion strategy across the Middle East. Saudi Arabia has always been one of our key destinations, and we wanted to expand our operations in the Kingdom with a reputable partner in a premium location.”
It is hoped that the hotel and its offerings will appeal to visitors from across both the GCC and the Islamic world, according to Jabal Omar Development Company CEO Yaser F. Al-Sharif, who said: “We are privileged to partner with Abu Dhabi Capital Group, one of the most distinguished organisations that is expanding the footprint of its H Hospitality Collection in Saudi Arabia. The agreement marks the importance they place in operating their first hotel project in the holy city of Makkah.
