Shaza to open 180-room hotel in Doha
Doha, May 6, 2013
Regional hospitality brand Shaza Hotels has signed an agreement to open a new 180-room property in Doha by the spring of 2016, said a senior official on the sidelines of Arabian Travel Market, which opened today in Duabi.
Announcing this on Monday, president and CEO Simon Coombs said, "Shaza aims to increases its portfolio across the region with projects in Amman, Dubai, Istanbul, Jeddah, Muscat and Riyadh, among others."
“Our vision is to create a unique brand for the region that celebrates its diverse cultures, while still delivering international standards of luxury,” he stated.
The 180-room Shaza Doha will be located in the cultural district close to the Souq Wafiq and Musuem of Islamic Art, and will feature the country’s first hotel art gallery integrated in to the lobby – it will also include a membership-only business club with restaurant, private meeting rooms, exclusive suites, cigar lounge and library plus three other restaurants, two ballrooms, media centre and signature Shalimar lounge.
In addition, there will be a deluxe Shaza Hammam & Spa plus a Kids’ Club that is expected to be the first of its kind in the region, based on the philosophy of the three “Es” -Entertainment, Exploration and Education for younger guests.
The new hotel will complement Shaza’s existing portfolio of nine hotel projects in operation or under development that includes the Shaza Al Madina, Shaza Cairo Nile, Shaza Doha, Shaza Fez, Shaza Al Rawdatain Karbala Residences, Shaza Marrakech, Shaza Salalah and Shaza Sarajevo.-TradeArabia News Service
