Qatar will welcome 105 new hotels and hotel apartments to its already extensive portfolio of properties, as the country gears up to host the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022. The new properties will add to Qatar’s extensive range of properties available for travelers and enhance the visitor experience, as Qatar Tourism continues its mission to turn the country into a world-leading destination.
Among those opening is the Banyan Tree Doha, a five-star luxury property, elegantly designed by renowned interior designer Jacques Garcia. The hotel boasts five opulent dining options, 341 rooms, suites and residences, with all facilities and amenities enclosed within a circular architectural marvel.
Other hotels that will grace the Doha skyline include the Pullman Doha West Bay, due to open later this year, offering 375 rooms and suites and 93 stylish apartments; the JW Marriott West Bay offering a terraced swimming pool, 297 rooms, a variety of restaurants, and cutting-edge sports and fitness facilities and the luxurious Steigenberger Hotel, in a futuristic building with 204 rooms and suites, a 4,300-sq-ft ballroom and six conference rooms, making it ideal for both personal and professional gatherings.
Each of these new hotels contributes a unique amenity or experience to Qatar’s 184-property-strong portfolio, which is made up of nearly 32,000 room keys.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive and Chairman of Qatar Tourism, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are continuing to expand our tourism offer to ensure guests enjoy the best of Qatari hospitality while being able to choose a hotel, resort or serviced apartment that accommodates to their budget and needs. These upcoming properties are part of our strategy to diversify our offering and broaden our appeal to visitors. We are pleased to expand our global tourism offer in line with Qatar National Vision 2030 and provide travelers with more options to experience the very best of Qatar.”
