Makarem Hotels has announced the signing of a contract to operate Makarem Sagryah Tower Hotel in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
The four-star hotel, which is due to become operational in the first quarter of 2020, is located in Maabeda, five kilometres from the Haram.
The upscale hotel features 760 finely designed spacious rooms, boasts two state-of-the-art ballrooms and three conference halls.
The new property places Makarem Hotels closer to achieving its expansion strategy with its target of operating 5,000 rooms by 2023.
Makarem Hotels is the Saudi hotel brand from Dur Hospitality, specialised in serving the holy cities of Saudi Arabia.
Badr Al Badr, chief executive of Dur Hospitality, said Makarem Hotels continues to seek opportunities that contribute to the goals of Saudi Vision 2030, specifically in accommodating an anticipated 30 million pilgrims by the year 2030.
Makarem Hotels caters to visitors in many locations within Makkah, including Makarem Ajyad, Makarem Umm Al Qura, Makarem Mina Hotel, Makarem AlShorofat, and Makarem AlBait.
The brand continues to offer an array of convenient accommodation and diverse services to Hajj and Umrah pilgrims.
Its current portfolio under operation consists of 1,415 rooms, with another 1,176 rooms in the pipeline after the signing of Makarem Sagryah this month and Makarem Jabal Al-Kaaba hotel earlier this year.
