Qatar’s hospitality sector is set to get a further boost with the new Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas. 

In July 2020, Katara Hospitality announced the Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas will be opening its doors soon. The resort will open partially with limited available inventory. They will be allocating only one villa per family until all premises are operational. The Amir, HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani made an inspection visit in July.

With sweeping views of the Arabian Gulf, the Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas is set to become the Middle East’s premier beach resort destination, located over 3 mn sq m on the prime coastline of southwest Qatar, less than 100 km from Doha.

Sprawling across 3.5 km of picturesque private beaches, the Hilton Salwa Beach Resort & Villas is a luxurious escape with bright white and blue exteriors blended with traditional Arabian style, surrounded by lush green gardens. Stay in a private beachfront villa and enjoy the marina and yacht club, luxury spa, swimming pools, over 20 on-site dining venues, and access to the resort’s theme park, Desert Falls Water and Adventure Park.
