An Hyatt affiliate has entered into an agreement with Jabal Omar Development Company to manage three Hyatt-branded hotels in Mecca (Makkah), the holy city of Islam, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Mecca draws millions of tourists every year, many from regions where the Hyatt brand is well known and recognized, said Peter Norman, senior vice president, real estate and development for Hyatt International, Europe, Africa and Middle East. Opening these three hotels will strengthen the Hyatt brand in Saudi Arabia and will further Hyatts goal of becoming the preferred brand in every segment we serve.

The hotels will be located in close proximity to several religious sites, including the Holiest shrine of Islam Al-Masjid Al-Haram or the Sacred Mosque, Mount Arafat, Muzdalifah, and Mina. Pilgrims visit these sites each year for Hajj, the largest pilgrimage in the world, and during the month of Ramadan.

We are thrilled to be involved in the introduction of the Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Place and Hyatt Summerfield Suites brands to The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, said Peter Fulton, managing director, Hyatt International, Southwest Asia. These hotels will join Park Hyatt Jeddah Marina, Club and Spa, and serve as a testament to the global appeal of the Hyatt brand, and the well established reputation Hyatt has as a preferred management company.
