InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) plans to open the biggest property yet under its new upmarket Voco brand

Big things are coming for InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and its new upmarket Voco brand — literally.

IHG plans to open its biggest property yet under Voco. That would be the Voco Makkah in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is slated to open in early 2020, and when it does it will have 4,200 rooms, making it not just the biggest Voco property but one of the single biggest hotels in the entire world (with the biggest, for those who are curious, being the 7,351-room First World Hotel in Malaysia, which set the Guiness World Record for having the most rooms back in 2015).

Voco Makkah will be housed within the Maad Hospitality Towers development, which is a mixed-use project that also includes restaurants, lounge areas, event spaces and prayer halls.
