Hyatt Regency Makkah opens in Saudi Arabia

Hyatt Hotels Corporation opened the Hyatt Regency Makkah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia under a management agreement with Jabal Omar Development Company. This is the first hotel under a Hyatt brand to open in Makkah and the first Hyatt Regency-branded hotel to open in Saudi Arabia. A second Hyatt Regency-branded hotel in the country, Hyatt Regency Riyadh Olaya, is expected to open in 2016.

The hotel is a one-minute walk to the holiest shrine of Islam – Al Masjid Al Haram or the Sacred Mosque – and close to several religious sites such as Mount Arafat, Muzdalifah and Mina. Roadways make the hotel accessible to and from Jeddah, the region’s urban center and main port city, as well as King Abdulaziz International Airport. On the premises, 175 parking bays are available for central parking.

Hyatt Regency Makkah is part of a mixed-use development built up of more than 21.5 million square feet. The hotel offers 656 guestrooms – including 26 suites spanning 19 floors that range in size from 409 to 2,045 square feet, with a Royal Suite on the 18th floor that overlooks Al Masjid Al Haram.
