Dusit announces Doha project

After the soft launch of its second hotel property in the United Arab Emirates, Asian hospitality group Dusit International announced their latest hospitality project at West Bay, in Doha, Qatar.

Slated to open in the last quarter of 2013, this will be the first Dusit branded property in Qatar, but the company’s sixth in the Middle East.

Located in Doha’s diplomatic district overlooking the Doha Corniche, the property offers views across the Arabian Gulf. The building’s proximity to the Malls, Doha Exhibition Centre and the upcoming Doha International Conference and Exhibition Centre makes it ideal for short and long-stay guests travelling on leisure or business. The project is eyed to redefine standards of luxury in Doha’s international hospitality sector.

Dusit International is actively seeking luxury hotel and serviced residence management opportunities within the region, with a focus on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Oman, and to further solidify its presence within the United Arab Emirates where it has been operating for over a decade.
