Dubai Holding, the global investment conglomerate and Jabal Omar Development Company, one of the Middle East’s largest real estate companies, have signed an agreement to develop Jabal Omar Jumeirah Makkah Hotel in Saudi Arabia. Managed by Jumeirah Group, the world-renowned luxury hospitality brand, the five-star hotel is walking distance from the Holy Mosque and comprises four towers with stunning views of Masjid-al-Haram.

The Jabal Omar Jumeirah Makkah Hotel will include 1,033 guest rooms along with 93 villas and will feature a variety of food and beverage offerings, meeting facilities, executive lounge, and gymnasium and over 90 retail units throughout the complex. The hotel will be operational in early 2019.

With this strategic addition, Jumeirah Group has expanded its global reach to 22 luxurious hotels and resorts managing 7,164 hotel rooms around the world.

Commenting on the agreement, Yasser Al Sharif, Chief Executive Officer, Jabal Omar Development Company, said, “Jabal Omar Development Company is committed to offering guests of Masjid-al-Haram and visitors to the Holy Capital superior hospitality services, in accordance with the highest international standards. We are pleased to work with an established global hospitality brand grown in our region, such as Jumeirah Group, and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation to reap mutual benefit for our guests and shareholders alike.”
