Kempinski Hotels is making further inroads into the Middle Eastern market, revealing plans to build a new luxury project in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. Kempinski Hotel Makkah will offer 380 rooms and suites, and will be located in the prime zone of King Abdul Aziz Road.
“With our newly signed hotel project in Makkah, we will be present in the most important destination within Saudia Arabia and the world’s holiest city of Islam.
“We are proud that, together with Umm Al Qura for Development & Construction, a locally very well-established and highly respected real estate company, we will play a major role in shaping the all-new KAAR boulevard which links our new project in Makkah with our previously signed property in Al Madina. A presence in the two cities will allow us to boost exponentially the performance of both hotels while merging very well with the country’s famous vision for 2030,” said Martin R. Smura, Chief Executive Officer Kempinski Hotels and Chairman of the Kempinski Management Board.
Yasser AbuAteek, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer of Umm Al Qura, said Kempinski Hotel Makkah is “one of the major milestones we are taking towards our vision to serving the people of Makkah and its visitors to assure we offer them the best possible options for lifestyle enhancement.”
Kempinski Hotel Makkah is scheduled to open in 2023.
