With the one-year countdown underway for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, Qatar Tourism reveals 10 spectacular new hotels and attractions set to open before the tournament kicks off.
Qatar Tourism previously revealed there are over 100 hotels and hotel apartments in the country’s construction pipeline. More than 40 are scheduled to be opened over the next 12 months, as Qatar gears up to welcome more than one million fans across the duration of the tournament.
To meet the demand, Qatar is looking to utilise every available accommodation option. Innovative choices for fans in 2022 will include camping in the desert and staying on board a temporarily moored cruise liner with stunning views of Doha’s cityscape skyline. Qatar will have up to 130,000 available rooms for the one million-plus fans expected over the course of the 28-day tournament.
The new properties add to a large list of major developments and openings launched in the past two years. This month saw the opening of the hotly anticipated Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som and another exciting recent opening has been the Banyan Tree Doha, a five-star luxury property elegantly designed by renowned interior designer, Jacques Garcia.
New theme parks have also recently opened, including the Desert Falls Water & Adventure Park at Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas, the country’s largest waterpark with 28 exhilarating rides and slides.
Every new hotel and attraction contributes a unique amenity or experience to Qatar’s existing 180+ property portfolio. The country’s priority is for all fans and travelers who visit Qatar to have a safe and seamless end-to-end experience.
