Some call it the “Las Vegas for pilgrims,” others just call it fabulous — the world’s largest hotel is set to open in 2017 in… Mecca. Yes, Mecca!
The mega hotel will feature 70 restaurants, 10,000 bedrooms, a shopping mall, food courts, and a “lavishly appointed” ballroom, not to mention the Saudi royal family will get their own floor(s) – five of ‘em. This £2.3billion enterprise is not so subtlety targeting the “well-heeled” from the Gulf region. Make your reservations!
