Address Jabal Omar Makkah
Making a debut in the Holy City of Makkah Al Mukarramah – the sacred heart of the Muslim world, EMAAR’s Address Hotels + Resorts is soon launching its first hotel in Saudi Arabia near Al-Masjid Al-Haram.
Offering breathtaking views of the Holy Kaaba and Al Masjid Al Haram, Address Jabal Omar Makkah will be the largest hotel of the brand’s portfolio with 1,484 spacious rooms and suites housed within two 40-storey towers, the tallest two buildings in Jabal Omar.
The two towers – connected by a bridge – form a gateway leading to the courtyard of the Grand Mosque for those coming from Al-Masar. Each tower has 634 luxurious hotel rooms and 108 suites, including a three-bedroom Presidential Suite, and the four-bedroom Penthouse, undoubtedly the property’s jewel in the crown.
Designed by the world-renowned Foster & Partners, the architecture combines elements of traditional Arabian heritage with concepts of tradition at its core. The hotel’s design reinterprets yesteryear’s traditional dense building clusters, creating a new contemporary vernacular that respects its sacred location. In addition, the design echoes the area’s mountainous terrain with cascading vertical elements to pay homage to the area’s stunning topography.
Guests looking to visit or stay can also look forward to various dining options – four restaurants, two lobby lounges and two club lounges between the two towers – serving traditional Hejazi cuisine and other Saudi Arabian specialities.
This landmark destination also features an exclusive business centre with state-of-the-art corporate meetings, events, and conference facilities and the world’s highest prayer room that can accommodate approximately 500 people.
Whether you are here to perform the Hajj or Umrah or simply to deepen your spiritual connection, Address Jabal Omar Makkah Hotel, just steps away from the Holy Kaaba, is the optimal place to begin your journey.
