If you are a Muslim and size does matter to you, start planning your trip to Makkah, Saudi Arabia. It is said that in 2017 the world’s largest hotel is set to open here.
The £2.25 billion hotel is based a little over 2km from the holy mosque, Masjid al-Haram.
The Abraj Kudai will be home to 10,000 rooms, 70 restaurants, a shopping mall, royal floors, prayer halls, and a convention center, all spread among 12 separate towers topped with helipads. The focal point, however, will be the central dome, expected to be one of the largest of the world.
The hotel, which is being created by multi-national design group Dar al-Handasah will cover a total area of 4.6 million square feet.
The 475-foot venetian, The Palazzo, in Las Vegas is currently the world’s largest hotel with 36 stories, 4,049 suites and 4,059 rooms.
So, are you going to Saudi in 2017? I am!
