Hyatt’s luxury Andaz brand to debut in Qatar

The opening will mark the fourth Hyatt property in Qatar

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with Al Mirqab Tourist Company LLC to open the first Andaz-branded hotel in Qatar. 

Comprising 318 rooms, Andaz Doha is expected to open in the autumn of next year, just in time to welcome the expected influx of visiting spectators for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

Andaz, Hyatt’s brand of luxury lifestyle hotels, aims to offer guests local experiences. The brand takes its name from the Hindi word for “personal style”, and every Andaz property aims to reflect the culture that surrounds it through its food and design.

Offering sea views and four dining concepts, Andaz Doha will be located in the West Bay area of Doha, among government institutions and within close proximity to a mix of restaurants, residences and retail outlets. 

Hyatt regional vice president of development, Middle East and Africa Ludwig Bouldoukian said: “We are honoured to announce plans for the Andaz brand in Qatar in our second collaboration with Al Mirqab Group as part of our ever-expanding brand presence in the country.

“Doha is a thriving hub for our lifestyle offerings and Andaz Doha is poised to become one of the city’s most innovative destinations. Looking forward, Qatar will continue to remain a key focus for Hyatt as we build our strong pipeline across the Middle East in destinations that truly matter to our guests. With its burgeoning luxury and lifestyle sector, Qatar will continue to represent an important market for Hyatt.”


Al Mirqab Tourist Company chairman Jabor Bin Hamad JJ Al Thani said: “Sharing a vision with Hyatt to create experiences that showcase Qatar’s authentic character for locals, as well as guests from all over the world, is what will set us apart.”

The hotel will add to Hyatt’s existing portfolio of properties in Qatar; joining Hyatt Regency Oryx Doha, Park Hyatt Doha and Grand Hyatt Doha Hotels and Villas, reinforcing Hyatt’s commitment to growth.
