Qatar (Country)

As big as Corsica and unknown twenty years ago, the emirate is investing massively to grow its reputation worldwide and become a leading tourist destination in the region. Mirage or future reality? A look at the projects undertaken by the small nation to become a major tourist attraction.

To welcome visitors to its territory, the country has endeavoured to attract hotel groups. The number of rooms in the emirate increased by
58.3% between 2014 and 2017, from 15,879 to 25,167. In 2017, the upscale segment accounted for 52.4% of the supply with 13,183 rooms, and the midscale supply accounted for 9,094 rooms, or 36.2% of the offer. The midscale segment recorded the strongest growth, almost doubling its capacity (29.9% in 2014).


This is far behind the economy segment with 2,610 rooms and the budget supply, which represents a very small minority with 250 rooms, or just 1.0% of the market.


The Qatar Tourism Authority plans to develop 75 properties (17,756 rooms) in the coming years, maintaining a strong focus on the upscale segment, which should welcome 48 new hotels (12,729 rooms).
