FROM Aug 19 to Aug 24, Hajj will be observed.

And Ascott, an international serviced residence owner-operator, will be offering treats for its guests.

For the uninitiated, the word Hajj means “to intend a journey” it is a demonstration of the solidarity of the Muslim people and their submission To God.

An important annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, Hajj is a mandatory religious duty for Muslims that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime.

This applies to all adult Muslims who are physically and financially capable of undertaking the journey.

It is one of the five pillars of Islam alongside Shahadah, Salat, Zaka, and Sawm.

Pilgrims are required to make their way to Kaaba, the “House of God” in Mecca, the holiest city for Muslims.

The rites are performed over five or six days beginning on the eighth and ending on the 13th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar.

Those visiting Mecca this year are in for a treat as Ascott will be offering two special offers across 11 of its Middle East properties including four in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Guests who book a minimum of three consecutive nights at Ascott Sari Jeddah, Ascott Tahlia Jeddah, Citadines Al Salamah Jeddah, or Spectrums Residence save 15 percent. Those booking five nights or more receive 20 percent off the best rates.

Ascott Sari Jeddah, Ascott Tahlia Jeddah, Citadines Al Salamah Jeddah, and Spectrums Residence are located just an hour away from the center of Mecca.
