Thailand-based ONYX Hospitality Group has been appointed by Gulf Trading and Contracting Company (GTC) to operate a 120-room hotel in the Qatari capital, Doha. This is ONYX’s first step for expansion in the Middle East for the Amari brand. The property is scheduled to open in September 2012.
Ideally located just 15 minutes from Doha International Airport, the property also boasts a prime position for exploring Doha’s historic and cultural sites, including the Islamic Art Centre and Souk Waqif, ranked # 1 of things to do in Doha by Lonely Planet readers.
“This project will be the first Amari property in the Middle East. It is a significant milestone for us and we plan to bring the personalised guest services and experiences that are a key attribute of the Amari brand to the region,” said ONYX President and Chief Executive Officer, Peter Henley.
The 13 storey property features 120 contemporary fully appointed rooms, including 78 superior rooms, 36 deluxe rooms, and six suites. Each room is stylishly decorated whilst also offering guests the ultimate comfort and luxury. In-room amenities will include LCD flat screen television, a comfortable lounge area, Wi-Fi internet access along with a work desk fitted with an iPod docking station.
