Corinthia Doha is set to be built on a 13,000 sq m site overlooking the island’s planned golf course and beach club. It will feature 110 guestrooms, a banquet hall and outdoor patio with room for 1000 people, multiple restaurants, a spa facility and luxury branded villas.
UDC chairman H.E. Mr. Turki bin Mohammed Al-Khater said: “This project is part of Gewan Island’s development plans and will ensure the company’s sustainable growth and the creation of new opportunities and revenue sources over the long term.”
Simon Naudi, chief executive of Corinthia Hotels, added: “We are delighted to have signed an agreement with UDC to manage a luxury hotel in Gewan Island which promises to be a magnificent location. The energy, vision and quality of resources assembled by UDC for this project will ensure that Corinthia Doha will be another landmark property that will enrich our portfolio and will equally add value to Doha’s hospitality offerings.”
