GHM has announced plans to open a new luxury resort with 59 rooms and suites and 32 chalets and villas at Katara Cultural Village in Qatar’s capital city, Doha.
Developed by the Qatari real estate consortium, Triple A, in partnership with Katara Cultural Village, The Chedi Katara Hotel & Resort will command a beachfront setting within the landmark district, which is home to theatres, concert halls, exhibition galleries, mosques, restaurants, shops, a park and an open amphitheatre.
This area is popular with discerning 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 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.”
With a design that pays homage to the glories of Indian Mughal Architecture and a touch of Ottoman influence, the new Chedi’s principal hotel building will house a lobby lounge with 180-degree views of the sea, an expansive spa and fitness facility.
Rooms and suites will feature terraces with Arabian Gulf and Doha skyline views.
