Saudi-based real estate development company, Jabal Omar Development Company (JODC), has chosen H Hospitality Collection to manage its new five-star hotel development in the Holy City of Makkah.
The property will represent H Hospitality Collection’s first venture in Saudi Arabia, which is in line with its focus on regional expansion. It forms part of the Jabal Omar mega development, which comprises residences, hotels, malls, retail amenities, prayer areas and other facilities.
The H Hospitality Collection-managed hotel will feature 650 rooms, three dining outlets, a lounge, café, meeting rooms and a modern gym. It is scheduled to welcome its first guests in the beginning of 2020.
“We are delighted with this new project that perfectly complements our expansion strategy across the Middle East,” chairman, H Hospitality Collection, Fadel Al Ali enthused on the development. “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. Serving Hajj and Umrah pilgrims, and supporting the Kingdom’s focus on promoting tourism, under the Saudi Vision 2030, we see significant opportunity in operating our first hotel project in Makkah.”
Also thrilled with the project was CEO, Jabal Omar Development Company, 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.”
