Mecca to have world's largest hotel

Mecca: Saudi Arabia is planning to construct the world’s largest hotel with 10,000 rooms at a massive price of USD 3.5 billion in the holiest city, Mecca.

The Arbaj Kudai hotel’s project is to be built on the vast land that is spread over 1.4 million square metres and is to be designed by Dar Al Handasah group. The location to set up the stupendous hotel is expected to be Manafia area in Mecca’s central zone.

The 45 floored gigantic Abraj Kudai will be an impressive structure comprising 10,000 rooms in 12 towers. In addition, 70 restaurants and four helipads will take it onto a whole new level. The construction is assumed to be completed by 2017.

The architecture of the hotel claims to have four-star accommodations in 10 towers and the remaining two will offer luxurious five-star provisions.

"We are honoured to be trusted with such a challenge. Designing hotel interiors on such a massive scale, with no operators yet in place, requires complex programming and design resourcing," said Andrew Lindwood, head of design at Areen Hospitality that will be designing interior spaces of the massive hotel.

The project is backed by Saudi Ministry of Finance with the aim to accommodate the rising number of visitors in the holy city during annual pilgrimage.

The touch of traditional desert fortress will be added to the towers. The remarkable towers will house a bus station, food courts, shopping malls, conference halls and a lavish ballroom atop a 10-storey podium.
