Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 27 November 2012

Ascott has opened its first premier serviced residence in Qatar.

With the 229-unit Ascott Doha, Ascott has a network of over 1,000 apartment units across six properties in four countries in the Middle East region.

The serviced residence is located in the diplomatic centre of the city and at the north end of the Corniche waterfront promenade, fronting Doha Bay, offering vistas of the coast and easy access to City Centre Mall, Qatars best known retail and entertainment spot.

Business travellers staying at the property will find themselves a stones throw away from the Doha Exhibition Centre and a 10-minute drive from the citys business and financial district.

Mr Vincent Wee, Ascotts Managing Director for India and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), said, We see strong demand for serviced residences in Qatar. Qatar, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, continues to attract significant foreign direct investments. It is also a host to major international events such as the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Our first serviced residence in Qatar, Somerset West Bay Doha, has been achieving occupancy of over 80%. Ascott Doha heralds a new benchmark for luxury serviced residences and it is well-positioned to attract the growing number of expatriates and travellers arriving in the city.

Ascott is a Singapore brand which has gained international repute for its quality properties worldwide and we welcome travellers to experience our new premier Ascott Doha. We will also open our properties in Oman, Somerset Panorama Muscat and Sohar Garden Residences, over the next 24 months. To expand our presence in the GCC, we will continue to establish new partnerships with property owners in Qatar, Bahrain, UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia, added Mr Wee.

Ideal for guests on relocation, a business or leisure trip, Ascott Doha offers guests a range of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments to suit their lifestyle needs.

Each apartment comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, en-suite bathrooms, separate dining and living areas as well as modern amenities such as a home entertainment system, complimentary wireless internet access and iPod docking station.

To relax, guests can choose from an indoor or a rooftop temperature-controlled pool, a fully equipped gymnasium, jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms.

Ascott Doha also provides business travellers with business centre services, meeting rooms and WiFi access.

Guests can purchase groceries at the propertys mini-mart and cook within the comfort of their apartment or simply visit the restaurant and caf located at Ascott Doha for a meal.

Besides Ascott Doha and Somerset West Bay Doha, Ascott also manages Ascott Park Place in Dubai and Somerset Al Fateh in Bahrain.
