Dur Hospitality has signed lease, management and operation contracts for three hotels in the central area of Madinah, Saudi Arabia with Al-Manakha Urban Project Development Holding Company. It will manage and operate these hotels through its subsidiary Makarem, the hotel brand specialising in hosting pilgrims and religious tourists in the kingdom’s two holy cities.
The new hotels will include 1,365 rooms, scheduled to open in two phases – the first in 2021 and the second in 2022.
Sultan Al Otaibi, CEO of Dur Hospitality said: “We seek to contribute to the long-term goals of the Saudi Vision 2030 through our expansion and development plans in Makkah and Madinah, which are evident through our hotel brand Makarem and our goal to increase the number of rooms to 5,000 by 2023. This is a pioneering development to provide world-class hotel services in the spirit of the Saudi hospitality.”
Walid Al Ahmadi, CEO of Al-Manakha Urban Project Development Holding Company outlined the various features the project will offer such as public squares, shopping areas and parks that boast fountains and hotel towers designed to provide a smooth, pleasant, and efficient accommodation experience for guests.
