Qatar‘s hotel scene keeps growing, and growing more international: Hilton Worldwide recently announced plans with local investors Al-Rayyan Hospitality to develop a new Hilton Hotels & Resorts property at Salwa Beach. No word yet on how many stars the hotel is aiming to have (or when it will open), but from what we’ve heard, it will have plenty of upscale elements to recommend it.
The Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas, Qatar is expected to be the largest of its kind in the Middle East and a first for Qatar. It will cover a full 257 acres of land and coastline in the southwest corner of the country, and will have a waterpark, a luxury marina and yacht club, a dive centre, cinemas, premier retail shopping and numerous restaurants. (Good to know: The resort will be about 60 miles from the capital city of Doha.)
