Rotana to open two more hotels in Qatar ahead of FIFA World Cup

The brand will add 688 keys to its Qatar portfolio ahead of the tournament

Rotana will open two Qatar-based properties in Q4 2022. Bin Al Sheikh Residences by Rotana will open in October 2022. Riviera Rayhaan by Rotana will welcome guests in November 2022. 

As the group further cements its footprint in the region, Qatar remains a key market as the country gets ready to welcome millions of visitors for the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Rotana president & CEO Guy Hutchinson said: “The region is buoyant as countries gear up to host one of the world’s largest events. The FIFA World Cup 2022 will bring an incredible influx of travellers to Qatar and a knock-on effect will also be felt in neighbouring countries like the UAE.”

Located in Doha’s city centre, Bin Al Sheikh Residences by Rotana features spacious apartments with views of the city. Offering fully-furnished residences, Bin Al Sheikh Residences by Rotana holds 158 studios, 278 one-bedroom and 62 two-bedroom apartments, and five three-bedroom penthouses.

All apartments feature a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, and a dishwasher with onsite amenities comprising an outdoor swimming pool, sports and wellness facilities and a kids’ play area.


Rayhaan by Rotana is located on Salwa Road in Doha. The four-star property features 185 rooms and suites, including 129 standard rooms and 56 suites.

The hotel’s wellness facilities include a spa, a pool and a fully equipped gym. The property also features three meeting rooms. By launch, there'll be an all-day dining outlet, a cigar lounge, a lobby café and a specialty restaurant.

Hutchinson added: “The two newest additions of our growing portfolio in Qatar cater to diverse customer needs, from long-term guests looking for a home away from home, to short stayers looking for a comfortable and memorable stay. This diversification within our portfolio allows us to tap into a wider demand as we continue our steady growth across the region.”
