Frasers Hospitality grand opened its third property in the Middle East - the Fraser Suites Doha, in Qatar - on Monday.

A prominent new landmark on the Doha Corniche waterfront, Fraser Suites Doha is located in the heart of the city within close proximity of major corporate and government offices in the West Bay business district.

It offers 138 serviced apartments fitted with lush interiors and extensive resident facilities.

Fraser Suites Doha is pivotal to the groups expansion in the Middle East, where it has already established presence in Dubai and Bahrain. The property has been enjoying high occupancy rates of more than 90% since its soft opening in November last year.

An economic powerhouse with copious natural gas reserves, Qatar is one of the world's richest countries per-capita and is located as a geographical hub within the Middle East. Host to the 2022 Soccer World Cup, the government is investing US$17 billion into tourism infrastructure, which includes the construction of luxury hotels, resorts and meeting facilities as part of its five-year plan which includes the building of a new Doha International Airport and a cruise ship terminal to cater to the more than 50 million visitors that are expected to come through the country.

With arrivals expecting to hit 149 million in the region by 2030 according to the UN World Tourism Organisation, the Middle East will continue to be a key growth area for Frasers, said Mr Choe Peng Sum, Chief Executive Officer of Frasers Hospitality Pte Ltd. Qatar with its strategic location and aggressive plans for economic development is an important piece of that Middle East puzzle. Already the regional hub for conferences and exhibitions, it is expected to be a further catalyst for growth, particularly now with government structures becoming more open and progressive.
