May 8, 2013

Minor Hotel Group continues its Middle Eastern expansion with its first hotel in Qatar.  Opening early in 2014, Anantara Doha Island Resort & Spa will mark the second country of operation for Minor Hotel Group in the Middle East.

Located on a 32-acre island, the resort will be accessible by speedboat from Doha’s downtown area. Anantara Doha Island Resort & Spa will offer 141 roomsincluding 96 guestrooms, 34 pool villas, and 11 two- and three-bedroom overwater pool villas. A large lagoon pool, a surf pool with a wave machine, and hydro exercise pools will be available. The island will also hold a marina accommodating up to 50 boats.

A dedicated family beach, a nine-hole golf putting course, a bowling alley, and a cinema will be available, along with a reef conservation center are currently under development.  

For business guests, the resort will feature a ballroom, two meeting rooms, and an outdoor event space accommodating up to 100 people. There will be four restaurants and bars⎯⎯including a contemporary Japanese restaurant and an Arabic beach club.

Minor Hotel Group is partnering with the Qatari-owned company Al Rayyan Hospitality for its first property in the country. The group currently has five properties currently in operation in the UAE⎯⎯three Anantara properties in Abu Dhabi and two Oaks serviced suites, one in Dubai and one recently added in Abu Dhabi, with three further Anantara properties under development to open in the UAE this year.

Says Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor Hotel Group, “The Middle East is a key strategic area of development for Minor Hotel Group and we are actively looking at opportunities to grow not only Anantara but also our AVANI and Oaks brands in the region as well.”
