Address Jabal Omar Makkah Unveils its Sky Mussallah, the World’s Highest Prayer Room Overlooking the Holy Kaaba

Address Jabal Omar Makkah, the iconic luxury hospitality destination in the heart of Makkah, is proud to announce the opening of its Sky Mussallah, a stunning prayer room that encapsulates sheer opulence.


Designed to excel on every metric, the new Sky Mussallah is a perfect embodiment of the hotel’s unparalleled architectural excellence. The mussallah stands as a sensational vantage point for guests to immerse themselves in complete spirituality while gazing out at the magnificent landmarks of Makkah. It has been specially designed to offer a heartfelt connection to its sacred surroundings, providing a bird’s-eye view of Masjid al-Haram with a full sight of the Holy Kaaba, where the whole city comes alive every year during the “Hajj & Umrah” season.


The interiors of Sky Mussallah are just as extraordinary, featuring a seamless fusion of ancient Arabian charm and contemporary opulence. The stunning Arabic calligraphy on adds a layer of profound grace to the ambience. Each stroke of the calligraphy tells a different story about the “Names of God in Islam”, such as Al-Muqaddim (The Advancer), and Al-Mani (The Shielder and Protector), infusing the space with a sense of reverence and connection to the rich Islamic heritage. 


Located in the interconnecting bridge that links the property's two towers, soaring majestically at 483 meters high above sea level, and standing proud at 179 meters from the hotel’s internal road level, the Sky Mussallah has recently been inducted into the Guinness World Records for “Highest Prayer Room Within a Skybridge”. 


This remarkable achievement was a result of both architectural brilliance and boundless creativity, employing cutting-edge technologies and using special equipment to design this incredible space. With an impressive weight of 650 tonnes, its steel bridge was first assembled at 312 meters above sea level before being lifted to the final level where it links the hotel’s twin towers at the 36th, 37th, and 38th floors.


Khalid Al Amoudi, the CEO of Jabal Omar Development Company, commented on this stunning achievement, saying “We are thrilled to have entered the prestigious Guinness World Records with our awe-inspiring Sky Mussallah. This remarkable stride is a symbol of our steadfast commitment to offering unrivalled experiences for pilgrims and travellers. With its prime location centring the hotel’s twin towers, the Sky Mussallah is truly breathtaking and is a must visit sight for everyone passing through the city.” 


The mussallah is spacious enough to accommodate around 520 people, as it spans 550 square meters, making it perfect for prayer no matter the time of the day with uninterrupted, inspiring views of Al Masjid Al Haram . As dawn breaks over Makkah, visitors can witness the stunning beauty of the holy city awakening, transporting them into a realm of utter tranquillity and peace. When the sun begins its descent, the Mussallah transforms into a sanctuary of serenity, with the fading sunlight painting a palette of warm tones, which create an unforgettable spiritual experience and a sacred haven for contemplation and prayer.


Towering high in the iconic Address Jabal Omar Makkah, this landmark property unfolds a retreat of warmth and enchantment, weaving together a tapestry of truly unforgettable experiences for both pilgrims and travellers. Featuring a wide range of exquisite facilities, superb accommodations, tempting dining venues, and so much more, Address Jabal Omar Makkah is a mainstay on the city’s hospitality scene.


Mark Kirby, Head of Emaar Hospitality Group, shared his remarks on the opening of the Sky Mussallah, saying, “It is a great achievement to finally open our stunning Sky Mussallah and we look forward to welcoming visitors to experience the spirituality on offer at this unrivalled location. As part of our diverse hotel chain, Address Jabal Omar Makkah stands as an iconic landmark in the city of Makkah, blending the luxurious style of Address Hotels + Resorts with the rich Arabic traditions of Saudi Arabia.
