GHM announces plans to launch new Chedi hotel property in Doha, Qatar

Chedi Katara Hotel and Resort will occupy a beachfront setting within the 100-hectare Katara Cultural Village district

GHM (General Hotel Management), the luxury hospitality management group, has announced plans to open a new luxury resort in the Katara Cultural Village in Doha, Qatar.

According to a statement, the resort will be composed of 59 rooms and suites as well as 32 chalets and villas.

Developed by the Qatari real estate consortium, Triple A in partnership with Katara Cultural Village, The Chedi Katara Hotel & Resort, Doha, Qatar will occupy a beachfront setting within 100-hectare (247 acre) Katara Cultural Village district that includes theatres, concert halls, exhibition galleries, mosques, restaurants, shops, a park and an open amphitheatre.

The area is considered to be a major attraction for travellers and Qataris who are keen to explore the cultural heritage of the region. All of Katara’s pedestrian-friendly attractions will be accessible from the property, either by foot or buggy, the statement added.

“The Katara Cultural Village is a microcosm of everything that Qatar stands for and what it aspires to be,” said GHM Chief Executive Officer Tommy Lai. “Our resort shall be both a springboard to and a respite from one of the most invigorating experiences to be had in the region. It is an oasis of calm and heritage in the middle of a dynamic and modern city.”

The design of the resort will pay homage to Indian Mughal Architecture, with a touch of Ottoman influence, the statement said. The principal hotel building will house a lobby lounge with 180° views of the sea, an expansive spa and fitness facility, and rooms and suites with terraces and views over the Arabian Gulf and Doha skyline, it added.

The 32 villas will be spread across extensive landscaped gardens in the Katara Hills, ranging from one to five bedrooms, all with private gardens and swimming pools.

The Chedi’s food and beverage offering will include an all-day dining venue on the ground floor of the palace with live cooking stations. An exclusive cigar lounge will anchor the ground floor at one end of the palace and neighbours the resort’s Chedi Lounge.

On the beachfront promenade, a long swimming pool will accent the principal resort building while a second infinity pool will be located at the stand-alone Beach Club, the statement continued.

The property’s architect, WATG, is a 75-year-old US-based firm renowned for its work designing some of the world’s leading hotels, including the first hotel with overwater villas (in Bora Bora in 1961) as well as the Royal Opera House in Muscat. Its subsidiary, Wimberly Interiors, will handle the new resort’s interior designs.

The resort is expected to open in July 2022, ahead of the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Currently, the group flies the Chedi flag at The Chedi Al Bait, Sharjah, UAE, The Chedi Muscat, Oman, The Chedi Andermatt Switzerland, and The Chedi Hotel & Residences Luštica Bay, Montenegro.

The Chedi Al Bait, Sharjah, UAE was recently hailed by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the most remarkable hotel debuts of the year on its 2020 IT List. The Chedi Muscat, Oman was also named the #2 Hotel in the Middle East and North Africa by Travel + Leisure magazine’s World’s Best Awards.
