CHEDI RESORT FOR QATAR
A brand new Chedi resort is set to open in Qatar in the Middle East.
Doha is the location of the family-friendly property, which is expected to launch ahead of the FIFA World Cup next summer.
The Chedi Katara Hotel & Resort sits on the beachfront and within the 100-hectare Katara Cultural District. The village offers theatres, concert halls, galleries, mosques, restaurants, shops, a park and an open-air amphitheatre, all of which will be accessible from the resort either by foot or buggy.
The 91-key resort will include 32 one- to five-bedroom villas spread amongst the landscaped gardens, all with private gardens and pools.
The heritage design of the resort takes its cue from Indian Mughal architecture with a scattering of Ottoman influence. The main hotel building will house a lobby lounge, a spa and fitness centre, and rooms and suites with terrace views over the Arabian Gulf and Doha skyline.
A swimming pool will line the beachfront, with a second infinity pool at the stand-alone Beach Club.
