The Abraj Kudai will be the World’s Biggest Hotel in 2017

Dubai will soon lose the title of being a quintessential mecca for the world’s largest structures, due to the fact that Saudi Arabia is planning on building the world’s biggest hotel by 2017. The future Abraj Kudai hotel will be situated at the Manafia area in Makkah’s central zone, only 2.2 km south of the Holy Haram in Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Rising high to accommodate 10,000 rooms, the Abraj Kudai hotel will house 70 restaurants, several food courts, a bus station, shopping mall, a massive conference center and a glamorous ballroom as well. Along with five floors dedicated entirely to the Saudi royal family, the hotel will feature 12 towers standing atop a 10-story podium and centered around a massive dome.

Funded by the Saudi Ministry of Finance and designed by the Dar Al-Handasah group, the future world’s largest hotel is estimated to cost about $3.6 billion. Offering an unprecedented level of luxury to travelers in Saudi Arabia, the 45 storey-tall hotel will also allow super rich folks to land their helicopters on one of hotel’s four helipads.

Considering its unparalleled size, its distinguished location and its unique architectural style, this hotel will be a striking landmark, with a profoundly modern multifunctional identity related to both the Saudi locality and the Islamic culture.
