New Chedi resort to open in Qatar


The Chedi Katara Hotel & Resort is due to open next summer.


A brand new Chedi resort is set to open in Qatar in the Middle East, it has been announced.


Doha is the location of the family-friendly property, which is expected to launch ahead of the FIFA World Cup next summer.


The Chedi Katara Hotel & Resort sits on the beachfront and within the 100-hectare Katara Cultural District.


The village offers theatres, concert halls, galleries, mosques, restaurants, shops, a park and an open-air amphitheatre, all of which will be accessible from the resort either by foot or buggy.


The 91-key resort will include 32 one- to five-bedroom villas spread amongst the landscaped gardens, all with private gardens and pools.


The heritage design of the resort takes its cue from Indian Mughal architecture with a “touch of Ottoman influence”. The main hotel building will house a lobby lounge, a spa and fitness centre and rooms and suites with terrace views over the Arabian Gulf and Doha skyline.


A swimming pool will line the beachfront, with a second infinity pool at the stand-alone Beach Club.


Further Chedi properties around the world include The Chedi Al Bait in Sharjah, The Chedi Muscat in Oman, The Chedi Andermatt Switzerland and The Chedi Hotel & Residences Lustica Bay in Montenegro.
