THREE IN AND ONE OUT IN LUXURY HOSPITALITY
The new luxurious Banana Island Resort Doha by Anantara, developed by Al Rayyan Hospitality (ARH), will soon open as an idyllic 32-acre holiday retreat with Maldives-style over-water villas.
Currently, ARH is planning more resorts including the region's largest beach resort, a massive new 362-room waterfront destination, the Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas, on 257 acres (or 30 million sq m) of prime coastline in southwest Qatar. In a prime location in central Doha situated within a lush green landscape of 33 acres and a 13-hectare site, ARH is also developing the Al Messila Resort & VIP Spa.
Another exclusive international beach resort chain Nikki Beach has confirmed that it is pulling out of Qatar. Doha was supposed to be the company's first venture in the Gulf, and a site on the Pearl- Qatar had long been earmarked for construction.
