Scimitar as a Symbol of Hospitality

Katara Hospitality, the global hotel developer, owner and operator based in Qatar, clinched two accolades at the 2015 World Travel Awards, “Middle East’s Leading Hospitality Development Company” for the second year running and “Middle East Leading Tourism Development Project” for the iconic Katara Towers development in the Marina District of Doha’s Lusail City. A natural extension of Doha city, Lusail has been designed to encompass a modern, luxurious yet practical business and residential environment while being relevant for Qatar’s thriving economy.

The crossed swords of the country’s seal have been architecturally translated into twin arched towers that rise gracefully from the podium level, while the landscaped gardens and palm trees reflect in the ocean frontage. Raising gracefully from the podium level, the arched towers will host a luxurious five-star hotel to cater to discerning business travelers, a lavish five-star deluxe hotel and residences to meet the needs of those seeking sophisticated luxury accommodation and branded apartments to become home to permanent residents. The property will make available a total of 604 rooms.

State-of-the-art entertainment and recreational facilities, including specialist boutiques, VIP movie theatres, signature restaurants and a private Cigar Lounge are to be complemented by exquisite banqueting and conference spaces, as well as office dedicated areas.

The Katara Towers project was recently enhanced with the commissioning of a man-made satellite beach-front island. Home to a range of leisure and water sports facilities, food and beverage outlets as well as world-class water parks within a stunning garden environment, the development truly is a sight to be seen. Linked to the Katara Towers promenade by bridges, this spectacular feature pins this property as a reference landmark within the global hospitality landscape.

“Our aim was to create the hospitality icon of the 21st Century that is within one of the world’s most exciting urban developments. Our vision is to set new standards that go beyond the borders of the hospitality industry and provide a landmark location that is instantly recognized internationally,” explained Hamad Abdulla Al-Mulla, CEO & Board Member of Katara Hospitality, which in 2014, was also honoured as the Middle East’s Leading Hospitality Development Company. Opening of the hotel is scheduled for early 2018.
