Hotel shortage in Qatar a hot topic

When over 200 key decision-makers recently attended webinars about accommodation solutions in Qatar, the question on everyone’s mind wasn’t whether France will be able to defend the title. The burning question was whether there will be enough affordable rooms available in the tiny Gulf country. Predictions suggest that 1 million people will visit Qatar during the event, while only 35,000 hotel rooms will be operational. The majority of these rooms will be needed for the 32 participating teams, FIFA, and other stakeholders.

Khaya, one of the leading accommodation agencies at major events, is offering another solution.

“We will turn residential apartments into serviced apart-hotels,” explained Khaya’s CEO Volkhard Bauer during a series of webinars attended by travel agencies, sponsors, media and other stakeholders.

Khaya’s team has over 10 years’ experience in this field and is able to offer a wide range of properties in Qatar.

“We have 5-star penthouses with a private beach in our portfolio as well as affordable apartments for fans and workers,” said Bauer.

As travelling to Qatar is still highly restricted, Khaya presented its options through Virtual Reality (VR) Tours to give everyone a better appreciation of the look and feel of the places on offer.

As one of the wealthiest countries in the world, Qatar is home to a booming real estate sector, which has seen an increase in new residential developments.

It is expected that hotel-style apartments will alleviate the shortage of hotel rooms at the event, together with other innovative solutions such as tented camps and cruise ships.
