Conrad debuts in Saudi Arabia

The first Conrad hotel in Saudi Arabia opens its doors today with the launch of the 438-room Conrad Makkah.

Set in the heart of the Holy City and overlooking the Sacred Mosque, Al Masjid Al Haram, and the Holy Kaabah, the hotel combines intuitive service with sophisticated, locally inspired surroundings.

John T A Vanderslice, global head, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, said: "Conrad creates inspired experiences for our guests in some of the world’s most sought-after destinations. We are delighted to open our first luxury hotel in the Holy City and begin welcoming pilgrims and guests.”

Rudi Jagersbacher, area president, Middle East & Africa, Hilton Worldwide, said: "The arrival of Conrad Hotels & Resorts to Makkah marks the addition of our second brand into the city and our 11th hotel into Saudi Arabia. With another 28 Hilton Worldwide properties in development, we are extremely proud to offer incredible variety and choice for travellers to the region.”

Conrad Makkah offers 438 rooms including 62 suites in two towers. The suites – ranging from 56 sq m to 247 sq m for the Royal Suite – have a separate living area, a comfortable dining space with a kitchen, access to a private butler service.

The hotel features interior décor inspired by both modern and traditional Islamic design and complemented by contemporary art works.

Dining options include the steak restaurant Prime and all-day dining at the Al Mearaj restaurant.

Conrad Makkah offers an on-site masjid for up to 1,000 guests with audio connection to Al-Haram. The hotel also has 12 elevators that go directly to Al Haram, providing quick direct access during peak prayer times.

The hotel also offers two meeting spaces for up to 100 guests as well as a business centre and Executive Lounge.

Guests booking a stay at the hotel can also utilise the Conrad Concierge mobile app, which gives travellers the ability to customize details of their hotel stay before, during, and after each visit via a smartphone or tablet.

Conrad Makkah also participates in Hilton HHonors, the group's guest loyalty programme.
