Can you imagine a hotel with 10,000 rooms and more than 70 restaurants? No? Well, start trying, because the world’s largest hotel is coming to Mecca in Saudi Arabia—and it’s rumored to cost $3.5 billion (with a b!) dollars.
Owned by the Saudi Ministry of Finance, the hotel will be called Abraj Kudai and feature 12 separate towers of rooms and arguably more places to eat than most moderately-sized towns. Unsurprisingly, the hotel will feature helipads and will allegedly contain a full-size convention center.
“Entire floors” of the behemoth will be reserved for royal guests and on top of all that, Abraj Kudai will also be home to one of the world’s largest domes, perched atop the tallest tower.
Here’s an overhead shot of the different towers and how many floors each will have – how impressive!
The hotel will be more than 15 million square feet in size, and is slated to open in 2017, although financial issues will likely push the project to 2018. At the very least, we expect the hotel breakfast to be worthy of five stars.
