Archipelago International recently announced the signing of hotel management agreements with Jabal Omar Development Company (JODC), a leader in real estate development in Saudi Arabia, for two hotels in the prestigious Jabal Omar Project, which is within a few steps of the Holy Mosque in Makkah.
Both parties signed Hotel Management Agreements (HMA’s) for the 5 Star Luxury ‘Jabal Omar The Royal Alana Makkah’ with 581 rooms and the 5 Star ‘Jabal Omar The Alana Makkah’ with 560 rooms. The hotels, which are located in the Phase 4 of the Jabal Omar Project, are currently under construction and are situated adjacent to each other in a prime location overlooking the Holy Mosque. 
“We are fortunate to work with a partner like JODC who understands the value and importance of superior hospitality experiences that are specifically customized to the needs of guests from Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia is one of the fastest growing and strategically important source markets for the Kingdom and its Vision 2030 program. Our positioning, brand equity and infrastructure in these markets means we can deliver for our partners and add significant value to projects, not only in the holy cities, but throughout the Kingdom and the region”, commented Gerard Byrne, Managing Director, Archipelago Overseas. 
Khaled Al-Amoudi, Chief Executive Officer of JODC confirmed that “The company is striving throughout its journey of accomplishments to keep up with the ambitious vision of Saudi Arabia 2030 in supporting the hospitality sector and enhancing the spiritual experience of pilgrims, by expanding our partnerships with a group of international hotel brands at the Jabal Omar destination. Therefore, Archipelago International, a global company with a proven track record in Southeast Asia, has been attracted with the aim of joining the Jabal Omar Royal Alana Hotel and the Jabal Omar Alana Hotel within Jabal Omar’s distinguished hotel group.”

Al-Amoudi added, “Through this partnership, Jabal Omar and Archipelago are keen to enrich ke experience of our guests by providing the highest standards of a quality and performance throughout their religious and cultural journey in Makkah and help them to perform their rituals and return home with memorable spiritual memories.”
