Rosewood expands in the Middle East

Qatar: Rosewood Hotels & Resorts is set to open a hotel and residences in the US$45 billion mega-project called Lusail City in 2022.

The project is spread across two towers. The taller 40-storey building will house 300 residences for purchase, whilst the other 37-storey building will comprise a 185-room hotel and 173 serviced apartments for long-term stays.

Rosewood has partnered with Qatar-based developer Arkaz Investment on the project.

The hotel will feature a collection of eight outlets, including a bistro, lobby lounge, coffee shop, three restaurants, cigar lounge, an entertainment lounge, a Rosewood Spa and a gym.

Multiple private event venues will be available for hire, including a 1,500 square-metre ballroom, and Rosewood’s Manor Club executive lounge will offer Club Room and Suite guests curated services. 

Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer at Rosewood Hotel Group, said: “Rosewood Doha and Rosewood Residences Doha will create a new and differentiated benchmark for ultra-luxury hospitality in the region. We are honoured to be a part of Qatar’s ambitious vision and will be thrilled to see it realised in the coming years. This project represents our third outpost for the Rosewood brand in the Middle East; building on our unwavering dedication to innovation and service excellence, it exemplifies our strategy of thoughtful growth in the region.”

Aman G. Shahani, CEO at Arkaz Investments, added: “We are delighted to join hands with Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, renowned for its one-of-a-kind collection underpinned by its iconic A Sense of Place philosophy. We are proud to showcase the rich culture of Qatar as well as our visionary and innovative ambition for the future through Rosewood’s uniquely sophisticated lens and become the new lifestyle destination for Lusail City and Qatar.”

Lusail City is an area that extends across 38 square kilometres and comprises four exclusive islands with 19 multi-purpose, residential, mixed-used, entertainment and commercial districts.

The futuristic mega-project is said to become the home to 450,000 residents and will welcome 80,000 annual visitors.
