Katara wins two World Travel Awards

DOHA, May 7, 2015

Katara Hospitality, a hotel developer, owner and operator based in Qatar, clinched two accolades at the 2015 World Travel Awards.

Katara was named the “Middle East’s Leading Hospitality Development Company” for the second year running and the “Middle East's Leading Tourism Development Project” for the iconic Katara Towers development in the Marina District of Doha’s Lusail City.

The awards were presented to Hamad Abdulla Al-Mulla, CEO and Board member of Katara Hospitality, at a ceremony held at the Four Seasons Resort Dubai, Jumeirah Beach and attended by key travel, tourism and hospitality executives.

Commenting on the prestigious recognition, Sheikh Nawaf Bin Jassim Bin Jabor Al-Thani, chairman of Katara Hospitality, said: “This continued recognition as a leading hospitality company reflects Katara Hospitality’s milestone achievements in contributing to the hospitality industry through investment and development of the world’s most spectacular properties.  We are proud to have been awarded these prestigious awards and to be recognised not only for our company achievements but for development projects such as Katara Towers, Lusail Marina District. We will continue to strive for hospitality excellence as we progress with our regional and global expansion.”

The Katara Towers, expected to open in early 2018, reflect an architectural translation of Qatar’s national seal, representing the traditional scimitar swords.

Raising gracefully from the podium level, the arched towers will host a luxurious five-star hotel to cater to discerning business travellers, a lavish five-star deluxe hotel and residences to meet the needs of those seeking sophisticated luxury accommodation and branded apartments to become home to permanent residents. The property will make available a total of 604 rooms.

State-of-the-art entertainment and recreational facilities, including specialist boutiques, VIP movie theatres, signature restaurants and a private Cigar Lounge are to be complemented by exquisite banqueting and conference spaces, as well as office dedicated areas.

The Katara Towers project was recently enhanced with the commissioning of a man-made satellite beach-front island.
The project will be home to a range of leisure and water sports facilities, food and beverage outlets as well as world-class water parks within a stunning garden environment.

 “Our aim was to create the hospitality icon of the 21st Century that is within one of the world’s most exciting urban developments. Our vision is to set new standards that go beyond the borders of the hospitality industry and provide a landmark location that is instantly recognised internationally,” said Al-Mulla. - TradeArabia News Service
