Rixos Doha Qetaifan Island North will open in time for the 2022 World Cup on the development of Qetaifan Island North.
Accor reaches a new milestone with the signing of a management agreement with Qetaifan Projects Company.
The Rixos Doha Qetaifan, scheduled to open in 2022, will be ready to welcome business, leisure and family clients in this property.
The Group has partnered with Qetaifan Projects Company to manage the new Doha Qetaifan Rixos on the Qetaifan Island North project, and the island off the coast of Lusail City, providing a resort environment shaped by Qatar's historical, natural and cultural influences.
Since 2017, Accor and Rixos have made it a priority to work together to seize new opportunities to strengthen the brand's footprint in the Middle East and the region.
H.E. Sheikh Nasser bin Abdul Rahman-Al-Thani, Managing Director of Oetaifan Projects, said :
This project represents an exciting new way of life, as well as a symbol of vision, insight and aspiration to become an internationally recognized destination of choice. We believe that our partnership with the Accor group will be very beneficial for the development of tourism in the country, especially on this project designed to be Qatar's future destination.
The Rixos Doha Qetaifan will include a 345-key hotel including a 11,000 m² souk for rent, a Beach Club, a theme park and a water park, where visitors will be able to enjoy views of the Arabian Gulf.
Mark Willis, CEO of Accor Turkey, India, Middle East and Africa, added :
This development is an excellent opportunity for us to expand our footprint in the region. This will be the first Rixos in Qatar and with the World Cup taking place in 2022, we hope it will become a landmark for the hotel and leisure industry in Doha.
