The company has partnered with Al Sraiya Hotels & Hospitality Group for Hotel Indigo Doha Lusail
InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG®) signed a Management Agreement with Qatari holding company Al Sraiya Hotels & Hospitality Group under Al Sraiya Holding Group, for the opening of its global upscale boutique brand, Hotel Indigo, in Qatar. The property, Hotel Indigo Doha Lusail, is due to open in 2023 and will have 200 rooms.
Established in 2004, Hotel Indigo now has a presence in over 15 countries with over 100 hotels, and nearly another 100 hotels in the pipeline. Just as no two neighbourhoods are alike, no two Hotel Indigo properties are the same, taking inspiration from the area around each hotel to touch all aspects of the guest experience, from the boutique design to locally-inspired restaurants and cafes.
Hotel Indigo Doha Lusail will be strategically located in Lusail Marina, Qatar’s newest urban centre just 30-km from the airport featuring marinas, residential areas, commercial districts, luxury shopping and leisure facilities, as well as an entertainment district. Connected to the spirit of the local neighbourhood, Hotel Indigo Doha Lusail will offer guests a unique boutique hotel experience that will combine authentic local flavours and colours, modern design and intimate service.
Upon opening in 2023, the hotel will feature an array of leisure facilities including a spa, gymnasium and swimming pool. It will have a three-meal restaurant, a neighbourhood café, a lobby lounge and an executive lounge. The hotel will also offer a variety of dining options and exclusive F&B concepts in addition to meeting and banqueting facilities.
According to Pascal Gauvin, IHG Managing Director for India, Middle East & Africa, after the success of the recently opened Staybridge Suites Hotel in Lusail, they are delighted to once again partner with Al Sraiya Hotels & Hospitality Group to open another hotel in Qatar, in a visionary development property like Lusail Marina. He said that as the country’s visitor profile diversifies, the hospitality sector in Qatar continues to evolve.
The introduction of Hotel Indigo brand in Lusail will respond to the growing demand for upscale lifestyle hotels in the market. We look forward to offering a unique, locally inspired boutique hotel experience to our guests with the reassurance of a global brand, when we open our doors in 2023.’
Rashid Al Kaabi, Vice Chairman of Al Sraiya Holding Group added that they too, are pleased to partner with IHG for the second time.
We are confident that this design-led hotel inspired by the neighbourhood story, that differentiates itself from the traditional offerings will be a popular choice amongst travellers visiting the city.’
IHG currently operates 92 hotels across seven brands in the Middle East with a further 38 in the pipeline and due to open within the next three to five years. IHG now operates seven hotels across four brands as of 31 March 2019: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Staybridge Suites.
