With an estimated budget of $3.5 billion, Saudi Arabia is at the helm of building the world’s largest hotel. Sublime suites, luxuriating surroundings, succulent food and everything extravagant will define this hotel.
The city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, is soon to give the world a gorgeous hotel in Abraj Kudai.
Still under construction, the hotel will span around 1.4 million square meters and is expected to open in 2017. The hotel’s construction is being funded by the Saudi Ministry of Finance and designed by the Dar al-Handasah group, an international project design firm.
With a massive 10,000 rooms, 70 restaurants, 4 rooftop helipads, and 12 towers of exceedingly pleasing beauty, this hotel will create luxury goals for the world.
It will be situated 2 km away from the world’s largest mosque, the Masjid al-Haram.
The largest towers of the building will have 45 storeys; the shortest will have around 30. However, the top 5 floors will be reserved for the Saudi Royal Families.
It will also have one of the most diverse food courts, a colossal convention centre, a bus station, a shopping mall and a ballroom.
Close to 2,000,000 pilgrims visit Mecca every year during the time of Hajj and a total number of 20,000,000 people visit the city annually. Not all of them can afford this, but this will be some sight.
