Set to open in Q4 2018, this will be the group’s first Dusit-branded property in Qatar.
The hotel is close to the Souq Waqif, Katara Cultural Village and the Pearl, and only a 25-minute drive from the Hamad International Airport.
The hotel has 261 rooms and suites and 96 hotel apartments.
“Qatar is set to host two of the world’s largest sporting events: the Fifa World Cup 2022, in which the country is expecting to host more than 1 million international visitors for the World Cup itself, and the World Athletic Championship in 2019 which serves as a right time for us to open Dusit Doha Hotel to welcome the organisers, sponsors and consultants who will be making Doha their home for the next few years. Dusit – being the first five-star hotel in Qatar with Thai culture and heritage, would enable the vast Thai experience to the valuable customers”, said Ahmed Mahdi Al Majed of the Al Majed Group.
“It’s an exciting time for Qatar and we’re delighted to announce the Dusit Doha Hotel, our second property with the Al Majed Group. The hotel will be designed keeping in mind the latest developments in the vibrant city, to resonate with both business and leisure travellers alike,” said Suphajee Suthumpun, Group CEO of Dusit International.
With 27 properties currently in operation across four brands in eight countries, Dusit International will see the number of Dusit properties reach over 50 within the next three to four years.
