Accor strikes management deal to open first Rixos Resort in Qatar

The group is partnering with Qetaifan Projects Company, a 100% owned subsidiary of Katara Hospitality to manage the new Rixos Doha Qetaifan on the Qetaifan Island North project, and island located off Lusail City, offering a luxury resort environment shaped by the historical, natural, and cultural influences of Qatar.
Since joining forces in 2017, it has been a priority for Accor and Rixos to work together to take on new opportunities to strengthen the brand's footprint across Middle East and wider region.Located in the North Island of Lusail City, the hotel will be approximately 27km from Doha International airport (DOH) and can be easily reached by car. Guests will be able to access Lusail mainland through the two iconic hanging bridges.
Among other exciting attractions, guests will experience an adrenaline rush in The Icon Tower, the world's highest tower of its kind with a height of 82 meter.
Rixos will open right before the world cup and will be a very important platform to showcase Qatar as a tourist destination due to its proximity to the stadiums and thanks to its unique leisure offering.
Accor currently operates six properties (1,378 keys) in Qatar across five brands including Movenpick, Mondrian and MGallery, with nine additional hotels (2,920 keys) in the pipeline. Rixos Doha Qetaifan will grow the Rixos portfolio to seventeen Rixos properties in the Middle East and Africa.
