Dusit International Continues Middle East Expansion with First Hotel in Qatar

Thailand-based global hospitality company Dusit International has signed a management agreement with the Al Majed Group to operate Dusit Doha Hotel. Set to open in late 2018, this will be the group's first Dusit-branded property in Qatar.

Situated in Doha's West Bay area, the five-star property is within walking distance of the City Centre, Gate Mall and the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre. Only a 25-minute drive from Hamad International Airport, the hotel is also located near such popular tourist spots as the
Souq Waqif, Katara Cultural Village and the Pearl.

Ideal for both extended and short stays, the 357-key hotel has 261 guest rooms and suites, as well as 96 apartments. Guest rooms have a minimum area of 41 square meters, the largest rooms of their kind in the area.

There are four types of accommodation to choose from, all with modern amenities and comfortable furnishings. For long-term guests, the hotel apartments, available with one, two or three bedrooms, complemented by the hotel facilities and services, offer outstanding options.

The property's location affords amazing views of the bay and the gulf beyond.

As Qatar is scheduled to host two of the world's largest sporting events, the 2019 World Athletic Championship and the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Ahmed Mahdi Al Majed of the Al Majed Group sees the present as the "right time for us to open Dusit Doha Hotel to welcome the organisers,
sponsors, and consultants who will be making Doha their home for the next few years."

"It's an exciting time for Qatar and we're delighted to announce the opening of Dusit Doha Hotel, our second property with the Al Majed Group," said Group CEO Suphajee Suthumpun of Dusit International.

With 27 properties currently in operation including four brands in eight countries, Dusit International is in a significant growth phase which will see the number of Dusit properties nearly double within the next few years across key markets worldwide.
