Rotana expands footprint in Qatar

As countries around the GCC gear up for FIFA World Cup 2022, Rotana adds 688 keys to its existing portfolio in Qatar, with properties set to open in the final quarter of the year


Rotana has paved the way for its Qatar expansion with the opening of two properties in the GCC nation. Bin Al Sheikh Residences by Rotana and Riviera Rayhaan by Rotana in Doha have opened their doors and are ready to welcome the millions of visitors to the country during FIFA World Cup 2022.


Guy Hutchinson, President & CEO of Rotana, said: “The region is buoyant as countries gear up to host one of the world’s largest events. FIFA World Cup 2022 will bring an incredible influx of travellers to Qatar and a knock-on effect will also be felt in neighbouring countries like the UAE. As we continue expanding, we look forward to diversifying our offerings in the country and across the region to answer to higher demand.”

Located in the heart of Doha, Bin Al Sheikh Residences by Rotana is an easily recognisable new landmark, featuring luxury interior design and spacious apartments with spectacular views of the city. It is the perfect home away from home for residents looking for the ultimate comfort matched with refined living. Offering fully-furnished residences, Bin Al Sheikh Residences by Rotana boasts 158 studios, 278 one-bedroom apartments, 62 two-bedroom apartments and five three-bedroom penthouses.


All apartments ensure the highest level of comfort with a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer and a dishwasher in every one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment. Guests are also invited to enjoy an array of services and amenities, including an outdoor swimming pool, sports and wellness facilities, a play area for kids, an international outlet of retail brands and ample parking space.


Set to usher a new level of hospitality, the four-star Riviera Rayhaan by Rotana, located on Salwa Road in Doha, features 185 rooms and suites, including 129 standard rooms and 56

suites comprising junior suites, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites. Bringing forward a contemporary stay completed with luxury finishing, Riviera Rayhaan by Rotana provides a range of dining options for guests to choose from.


In addition to the all-day dining outlet, the hotel offers a cigar lounge, a lobby café, and a specialty restaurant. For the ultimate city retreat, Riviera Rayhaan by Rotana invites guests to indulge in its relaxing spa, enjoy the pool and destress in the gym. The property also features three meeting rooms to suit any business or leisure event.


“The two newest additions of our growing portfolio in Qatar cater to diverse customer needs, from long-term guests looking for a home away from home, to short stayers looking for a comfortable and memorable stay. This diversification within our portfolio allows us to tap into a wider demand as we continue our steady growth across the region.”
