High-class full-service hotel facility offers luxury amenities, full-service accommodations, an on-site restaurant, and also the highest level of personalized service, like a concierge, room service, and garments pressing staff.
Economy hotels are small to medium-sized hotel establishments that provide basic accommodations with little to no services. Extended stay hotels are small to medium-sized hotels that provide longer-term full service accommodations compared to a customary hotel. Below, you can see the different types of hotels:
5* Luxury Hotels:
A 5-star hotel is a luxury hotel that gives first-class standards of service, the best facilities, amenities, and comfort. Typical necessary things in luxury hotels include personalised greeting, complimentary services like ironing, parking, fresh flowers, Facilities for disabled persons, a personal butler, Air-conditioned Rooms, and access to multiple restaurants (some of which may be award-winning venues), room space, Business centre etc.

The primary focus of these luxury hotels is to deliver exceptional services and facilities to pilgrims, ensuring their utmost comfort and satisfaction.

The economy hotel continues to be within the budget range, and it should be individually owned, although it always is an element of a budget hotel chain. Bedrooms in Economy hotels should have a TV and phone, but don’t expect the newest technology. It’s important to notice that the economy Hotels rating doesn’t mean the venue is dirty or unsafe. You’ll be able to give some thought to it as a little (usually family-run) place to drop your luggage and obtain some sleep. A restaurant and housekeeping services are often available.
Note: In Mecca and Medina Hotels are categorised in this way, How far the hotels are from both Mosques (Masjid-Al-Haram and Masjid-e-Nabawi), Numbers of Employs, Number of Rooms, What kind of Services and hospitalities they are providing.
3- Saudi Arabia Travel Visa:
The word "Visa" is derived from the Latin language which means "Paper that has been seen". It is a conditional permit issued to a foreigner by the territory, which allows them to enter, stay in or leave the territory.
It's subject to entry permission by an immigration official at the time of actual entry and can be revoked at any time.
For Spiritual Journey, there are several types of visas to enter Saudi Arabia. For the document requirement and more information you can visit our Blog, Saudi Visa 2023 read more.
The total time needed for visa processing is 24 hours as a maximum after submitting all the documents. You must bring a passport with a minimum of 8 months validity from the visa applying date. After adopting the new online visa-issuing process by Saudi Government, the applicant doesn't require waiting for 15 days as happened in the past.
All Muslims can easily take Umrah Visas which have original and authentic documents. You can take the Umrah Visa only from any local company that is authorized by the Saudi embassy. You can't go to Saudi Arabia on Umrah Visa during the Hajj time. After the month of Ramadan, issuing an Umrah visa is closed till 15 Shawwal (lunar month). The validity of the Umrah visa is 1 Month. Nowadays, Umrah visa holders can also visit other cities in the country which was not possible in the old days.
After the Hajj 2019, Saudi Embassy announced the tourist visa of Saudi Arabia. Anyone can take this visa except for some Asian Countries. All Muslims can visit all the cities of Saudi Arabia, but Non-Muslims cannot enter Mecca and Al Nabavi Mosque area. There are 2 types of tourist visas. The first one is a single entry visa and the validity is 3 months and you can stay 30 days in Saudi Arabia. The second type of tourist visa is multiple entries and the validity is 1 year and you can stay 90 days in Saudi Arabia.
Now, a British can stay up to 6 months in Saudi Arabia for tourism, Umrah, business, medical treatment, and study. This permit is called EVW and its cost is less than others.
This is most similar to Umrah visas where only Muslims can take Hajj Visas who have original and authentic documents. You can take the Hajj Visa only from any local company that is authorized by the Hajj embassy. The validity of the Hajj visa is around 30 days or 40 days and depends on the Saudi Embassy.
4- Full Loop Transfers with Holy Places (Ziyarats)
Transport is one of the most important facilitates of the Umrah Package if you are travelling with small kids or your family. So, we suggest to all customers please book your transport with your Umrah Packages 2023.
The reasons are mentioned below why we suggest to our customers that book transport before your departure.
Because most of us don’t know the local language of Saudi Arabia,
Customers have to go from the International Arrival house to the Airport Taxi bench,
They have to wait in long queues and
Customers can’t find the best taxi easily.
If you will book your transport with your package then you don’t need to worry about these things which are mentioned above. It does not mean that Driver will pick you up from the arrival house, because drivers are not allowed to enter the arrival house. What benefit do you get if you will book your transport before your departure?
The best point is the driver will call you one day before your travelling and guide you all the things where he will meet with you and confirm the pickup point. So, you don’t have to wait for a taxi and you don’t have to bargain with any local driver.
But if you are a solo traveller or you want to save £30 to £40. So, we suggest you, you can book your taxi when you arrive at Jeddah or Medina airport. Because it will cost you cheaper and even solo traveller can use the sharing transport.
Now, let me guide you what is the meaning of full-loop transport during the spiritual journey. Full loop transport means pickup from:
Arrival Airport to Makkah Hotel,
Makkah Hotel to Makkah Ziyarats,
Makkah Hotel to Medina Hotel,
Medina Hotel to Medina Ziyarats and
Medina Hotel to Airport
5- Umrah Guide
Umrah Guide is not important if you are a regular traveller or if you have all knowledge "How to perform Umrah" or you don’t have enough budget. Let me share the details with you, if you will book Umrah guide in your package so what services he will provide you?
