GHM has announced plans to open a new luxury resort, composed of 59 rooms and suites as well as 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, Doha, Qatar shall occupy a beachfront setting within the landmark 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 a magnet for well-heeled 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° 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.

The 32 villas dotting the extensive landscaped gardens in the Katara Hills range from one to five bedrooms, all with private gardens and swimming pools, offering privacy, luxury and tranquillity in the heart of the city.

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 and the exquisite Lobby Lounge, which is designed to heighten the welcome experience. An exclusive cigar lounge anchors the ground floor at one end of the palace and neighbours the resort’s Chedi Lounge.

On the beachfront promenade, a long swimming pool accents the principal resort building while a second infinity pool offers a relaxing environment for families to enjoy a wide variety of snacks and fresh juices at the stand-alone Beach Club.

The property’s architect, WATG, is a 75-year-old U.S.-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 gems in the region such as the Royal Opera House in Muscat. Its subsidiary, Wimberly Interiors, will handle the new resort’s interior designs, creating an environment of elegance and calm.

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.
