With only two years to go until Qatar hosts the world’s most popular football tournament, the country is unveiling some outstanding plans and projects to add to the excitement of football enthusiasts around the world.

In a spectacular new reveal, Qetaifan Island North is set to house 16 floating hotels to provide accommodation to tourists and fans coming to Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Qetaifan Projects, a company owned by Katara Hospitality, and ADMARES, a world leader in alternative real estate have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) affirming the construction of the floating hotels.

 

The artistic impression of the upcoming hotels showcases a stunning design of the hotels that will each comprise 101 rooms and a restaurant.

Together the four-storey hotels will contain as many as 1,616 floating hotel rooms, bringing a fascinating tourist attraction for those coming to Qatar for the most-anticipated tournament.

The unique accommodation will be closest to Lusail Stadium, set to host the opening and final games of the 2022 FIFA World Cup and will offer lodgers a chance to indulge in a host of activities.

Sheikh Nasser bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, managing director of Qetaifan Projects and vice-chairman of Katara Hospitality; Hesham Sharaf, chief operating officer, and Sheikh Nasser bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, head of business development, at Qetaifan Projects, in addition to Mikael Hedberg, CEO of ADMARES and Samer Malaeb, regional director of the company witnessed the signing of the MoU for the project.

According to a statement by the company, the project aims to “deliver sustainable solutions with minimum ecological impact.”

The hotels will utilize solar energy and will incorporate the “strictest energy standards.”

“After the World Cup, the hotels can be placed at any coastal location where the water is at least 4m deep,” the ADMARES CEO said.

Qetaifan Projects' first and main development is Qetaifan Island North, which is a distinct island featuring a state-of-the-art water park, luxurious hotels, unrivaled accommodation, and world-class facilities inspired by the region's rich culture and nature.

The Island's location and its distinctive waterfront represent a new and exciting way of life.

Located off Lusail city, the island features seven beaches; which makes it the city’s distinct waterfront destination.

The island spans approximately 1.3 million square meters with 830,000 square meters of attractions.
