(MENAFN Press) The Elaf Bakkah hotel managed by Elaf Group is situated at the Mahbas Al-Jin Area, near the Mena Road in Makkah Al Mukarramah. Guests are welcome to enjoy their stay in any of the hotel's 810 rooms & suites spread across 15 levels, with all visitors to Makkah Al Mukarramah provided access to the Prayer Area on the PR floor. They may also relax and relish a warm cup of coffee or tea at the mezzanine level coffee shop, grab a meal at the first level restaurant or browse the many shops on the ground floor.

The Elaf Bakkah in Makkah Al Mukarramah opened its doors on first of Dhul Hijja 1434H and has already welcomed over 3,000 guests during this hajj season. The hotel registered a "full house" occupancy rate throughout the Hajj period based on the number of materialized reservations. To cater to the growing demand for high-standard hotel rooms in Makkah, Elaf Bakkah hotel has added 810 new rooms to the properties that combine authentic Saudi services with international standards.

The Hotel is strategically situated in the Mahbas Al-Jin area, only 1,800 meters away from the Holy Mosque of Masjid Al Haram in Makkah. It has a luxurious ambience and offers the finest services and amenities under the supervision of a highly experienced team. Guests can choose from any of the 810 rooms - including 32 suites - all well-appointed and featuring state-of-the-art amenities. Furthermore, they can indulge in shopping at the 15 stores that will start operating soon at the hotel, or shop at the nearby Azizyah shopping district. They can also savor great food at two restaurants serving exquisite Arabic and international cuisine. The hotel is also equipped with 27 elevators, 4 entrances, business center, and 213 parking slots in addition to a helipad as part of Elaf Group's efforts to ensure the highest levels of guest satisfaction.

Hotel investments in Makkah “ the Hajj destination every Muslim should at least visit once in his lifetime “ are predicted to reach USD 133 billion by 2015, taking into account the number of hotels and tower buildings currently under way in the central area of the holy city. The investments in 450 categorized hotels in Makkah alone stand at about USD 500 million per annum, excluding other buildings and hotels that have yet to receive categorization certificates approved by the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA).

With more than 61,000 existing hotel rooms, Makkah is by far the largest hotel market in Saudi Arabia. In comparison, the capital city of Riyadh offers only 10,000 hotel rooms while Al Madina Al Monawara has just about 7,800 rooms. Furthermore, hotel market professionals expect an increase of 13,000 hotel rooms (18 per cent) in Makkah Al Mukarramah. The city has witnessed a major hotel construction boom over the last 10 years, with the number of top hotels increasing by 172 per cent.

The Elaf Bakkah hotel is a prominent accomplishment along with other key investments in Makkah. It is a part of Elaf Group's strategy to add 5,000 more hotel rooms to the market to accommodate the increasing number of tourists to Saudi Arabia. The Group remains committed to offer the best hospitality services in accordance with international best practices in order to support the Saudi General Authority for Tourism and Antiquities' efforts to achieve sustainable tourism development, while also enhancing Saudi Arabia's status on the world tourism map.
