Thailand-based Onyx Hospitality Group is set to open its first Amari hotel in the Middle East in September 2012 in Doha.
The hotel operator has been appointed by Gulf Trading and Contracting Company (GTC) to operate a 120-room hotel in the Qatari capital, located 15 minutes from Doha International Airport.
Onyx president and chief executive officer, Peter Henley, who will be announcing the contract at Arabian Travel Market, said: “This project will be the first Amari property in the Middle East. It is a significant milestone for us and we plan to bring the personalised guest services and experiences that are a key attribute of the Amari brand to the region. Amari Doha will provide genuine Asian hospitality with a modern twist.
"Business travellers will enjoy premium quality, convenience and thoughtful consideration through our creative corporate packages and thoughtfully designed meeting spaces. Leisure travellers too will experience Amari Doha's unique style, exceptional service and leisure facilities whilst also being encouraged to enjoy the local places of interest.”
The 13 storey property features 120 contemporary rooms, including 78 superior rooms, 36 deluxe rooms, and six suites.
In-room amenities will include LCD flat screen television, a comfortable lounge area, Wi-Fi internet access along with a work desk fitted with an iPod docking station.
The hotel will offer a selection of dining options and the Amari brand’s Breeze Spa concept which will also feature a Jacuzzi and a Vichy shower room.
Onyx Hospitality Group operates four hotel brands, Saffron, Amari, Shama and OZO. The Thailand-based hotel management company also manages a portfolio of independently owned or franchised properties throughout Thailand.
