Dusit has signed a management agreement with the
Al Majed Group to operate a new-build hotel in Doha, Qatar.
Set to open in Q4 2018 the Dusit Doha
Hotel will be the group’s first Dusit-branded property in Qatar.
Situated in the West Bay area of the capital
city, the five-star property is within walking distance to the
Doha City Centre, Gate Mall and the Doha Exhibition and Convention
Centre. The hotel is also located in close proximity to popular tourist
spots such as the Souq Waqif, Katara Cultural Village and The
Pearl, and only a 25-minute drive from Hamad International
Ideal for both extended and transient stays, the
357-key hotel, will comprise 261 guest rooms and suites, along
with 96 hotel apartments. Each guest room will be at least 41 sqm
one of the largest of its kind in the West Bay area.
The hotel will offer a choice of Club, Suites, Deluxe and
Premium Deluxe rooms while the hotel apartments will be available
in either one, two or three-bedroom configurations.
“Qatar is set to host two of the world’s largest
sporting events: the FIFA World Cup 2022 – in which the country is
expecting to host more than one million international visitors for
the World Cup itself and the World Athletic Championship in 2019
which serves as a right time for us to open Dusit Doha Hotel to
welcome the organisers, sponsors, and consultants who will be
making Doha their home for the next few years. Dusit – being the
first 5 star hotel in Qatar with Thai culture and heritage, would
enable the vast Thai experience to the valuable customers,” said
Ahmed Mahdi Al Majed, Al Majed Group. “We have an excellent
long-term relationship with Dusit International and firmly believe
in their product quality and high standards of service. We look
forward to yet another successful collaboration with them.”
With 27 properties currently in operation across
four brands in eight countries, Dusit International is in a
significant growth phase which will see the number of Dusit
properties reach over 50 within the next three to four years
across key markets worldwide. The Dusit Doha Hotel is the group’s
second property with the Al Majed Group.
