Grand Heritage has signed an agreement with Tanmiyat Real Estate and Investment, a venture of Bin Samikh Holding Group, to open a third property in Doha, which is expected to be ready within a year.
John Cullen, president, Grand Heritage International, said yesterday that the decision to run the third property was taken following the remarkable success of their two hotels opened two years ago in Qatar.
Cullen said Grand Heritage Doha Hotel and Spa in the Aspire Zone, has carved a niche for itself as one of the best hotels in Qatar. "The five-star hotel should be one of the best five in its segment without doubt," he said.
Similarly, Governor West Bay Suites has earned a name in the industry in just one year of operation, pointed out Cullen. Both the hotels together have more than 450 top quality rooms and enjoyed enormous patronage in the local market, he added.
The new hotel to be located in West Bay, in the vicinity of the Governor West Bay Suites, is named Grand Heritage West Bay. It would have 319 luxury suites.
"Although the properties under the Grand Heritage umbrella very much belong to one family of hotels, each yet retains a distinct identity of its own. We encourage this individuality because each city or country has its own culture," said Cullen.
