Melia Hotels International has signed an agreement with Tanmiyat Real Estate Investment Company to open its first hotel in Qatar.

Located in Doha, the 280-room five-star hotel is set to open in January in West Bay and will be the operator’s third in the GCC. It will be housed in the 41-floor Bin Samikh Tower.

Among the rooms at Melia Doha will be 37 suites, ranging from executive to the Royal Suite, while the property will also feature international and specialist restaurants, separate spas for both men and women, pools, and a gym.

The agreement for the property was signed this week in Doha by Tamniyat Qatar Real Estate Investment chairman and CEO His Excellency Dr. Braik Bin Saeed Al Marri, and Meliá Hotels International vice president and CEO Gabriel Escarrer.

Other Melia representatives, as well as the Spanish ambassador in Qatar, Carmen de la Pena Corquera, were also present at the event.

Melia already has one operational hotel in Dubai while a second, designed by Zaha Hadid, is set to open in 2016.
