Hotels & Resorts
Address to manage Makkah property

Emaar Hospitality Group’s luxury hotel brand Address Hotels + Resorts is to manage Jabal Omar Development Company’s (JODC) flagship hospitality project in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. 

This also marks the first expansion of Address Hotels + Resorts to Saudi Arabia. 

The Jabal Omar Address Makkah, scheduled to open in 2019, is located just steps away from the Grand Mosque. With two elegantly designed identical towers, the property is centrally located and forms the tallest towers within the master development. 

An interconnecting bridge linking the two towers serves as a visual landmark of the project. 

With a built-up area of about two million sq m, Jabal Omar features residences, hotels, malls, retail amenities, prayer areas and other support facilities. 

Jabal Omar Address Makkah will meet the growing need for luxury accommodation in Makkah with Address Hotels + Resorts to manage 1,490 hotel rooms and suites including units available for freehold sale.

Yasser Faisal Al-Sharif, the chief executive officer of JODC, said: “As our single-largest development and located in the heart of the Makkah, Jabal Omar is our prestigious project that complements our goals to promote a robust infrastructure that supports Hajj and Umrah pilgrims.”

“We wanted to ensure that the hotel stands out for its unique brand identity and exceptional service standards. Address Hotels + Resorts has proven expertise in managing world-class luxury mixed-use projects, and by choosing a brand that has its roots in the region, we are confident of delivering a hospitality choice that will support the goals of Saudi Vision 2030 to promote religious and cultural experiences,” he added.

Mohamed Alabbar, the chairman of Emaar Properties, said: “We are honoured to mark the expansion of Address Hotels + Resorts, the premium luxury hotel brand under Emaar Hospitality Group, to Saudi Arabia with the signing of this important management contract with Jabal Omar Development Company.”

“As an iconic development situated near the Grand Mosque, Jabal Omar Address Makkah will appeal to visitors from across the world by offering distinctive value propositions including its central location, attentive service and extensive amenities that meet the needs of visitors,” he added.

Every aspect of the hotel is thoughtfully created; while a guest room is 40 sq m in size, the suites are at 59 sq m and the presidential suites span almost 390 sq m. Over 3,000 sq m within the hotel will be set aside for two lounges featuring cafes and retail outlets. There will also be two signature restaurants, lobby cafes, six meeting rooms, two business centres and two fitness clubs.
