'Largest beach resort' in the Middle East will be run by Hilton

by Helen Andrews | 10 Jun 2014

Hilton Worldwide has teamed up with investors Al-Rayyan Hospitality to develop what they say will be the largest beach resort in the Middle East at Salwa Beach in Qatar, capturing sweeping views of the Arabian Gulf.

The 362-key Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas, Qatar, will be built on 104 hectares (257 acres) of land, including coastline, in the south west corner of Qatar.

“We sought an internationally recognised brand to match our strategy to create a resort destination with the very best facilities and service,” said Mohammed Mutlaq Al-Qahtani, group executive manager of Al Rayyan Hospitality.

Located 97km (60 miles) from Qatar’s capital city, Doha, the hotel will form the centrepiece of the resort which will feature amenities extending along both sides of the hotel and the full length of the development’s shoreline.

The resort will feature a 2,800sq m (30,139sq ft) health club and spa, plus several outdoor pools, in addition to 3,500sq m (37,674sq ft) of meeting and event space.

The main Hilton hotel building, which will reflect authentic Arabian architectural features, will include two 1,000sq m (10,764sq ft) presidential suites. Two small villages of family villas – one with 84 villas and the other comprises 32 – will flank the main building.

Other facilities to be incorporated will include a waterpark, a luxury marina and yacht club, a dive centre, cinemas and a wealth of retail outlets and a choice of 13 restaurants, bars and lounges.
