Qatar is adding 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 broaden Qatar’s appeal to a range of travellers and enhance the visitor experience.
One recent hotel opening is the Banyan Tree Doha, a five-star luxury property, designed by renowned interior designer Jacques Garcia. Hotel openings this year are expeced to include the Pullman Doha West Bay, a five-star Accor property; the JW Marriott West Bay, with an eye-catching and towering exterior; and the Steigenberger Hotel, famed for its exclusive hospitality.
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.
Banyan Tree Doha offers five opulent dining options, 341 rooms, suites and residences, within a circular architectural marvel. The Pullman Doha West Bay, due to open later this year, offers 375 revitalising rooms and suites and 93 stylish apartments. It features contemporary conference rooms and expansive ballroom, nine gastronomic outlets, trailblazing gym and spa, and outdoor pool.
The 53-storey JW Marriott West Ba boasts a terrace swimming pool on the 30th floor, 297 rooms, a variety of restaurants, and sports and fitness facilities. And the Steigenberger Hotel Doha will offer 204 rooms and suites, a spa, gym, a rooftop pool, various dining options, 4,300-sq-ft ballroom and six conference rooms.
