Qatar’s high-end hospitality scene is due to be enhanced following the signing of Langham Hospitality Group’s very first property in Qatar – Langham Place, Lusail, Doha – scheduled for 2018.
To be situated in the city of Lusail, the hotel (developed by Real Estate Services Group and managed by Langham Hospitality Group) will be home to 238 rooms, 90 luxury serviced residences and 56 residences units within the development’s new marina waterfront.
It will form part of the first phase of the Lusail City development which will span a built up area of 83,975m2 and will feature a 207m high landmark tower overlooking the Arabian Gulf, with four above-ground podium levels and 34 upper levels. There will be six branded duplex sky villas at the top of the podium, residential apartments up to the 17th floor, with the Langham Place hotel occupying the highest floors.
CEO, Langham Hospitality Group, Robert Warman noted: “This hotel in Doha will be a welcome addition to the brand which has already established a strong presence in major cities such as London, New York, Chicago, Sydney, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. With all the great infrastructure and world-class events happening in Qatar, we are very fortunate to enhance our presence in the Middle East during these exciting times.”
Meanwhile CEO, Real Estate Services Group, Ali Taimour declared: “We are delighted to partner with Langham Hospitality Group to bring something new and exciting to the Qatari hospitality market. The design of Langham Place in Lusail City will embrace a contemporary arts theme which is very much in keeping with the luxury hotel brand.”
