Al Gassar Resort, the new waterfront destination in Doha, Qatar, is expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2011 after three years of development.

Alongside the St Regis Doha hotel, the resort will feature residential areas consisting of three grand towers.

The St Regis Doha hotel will be the centrepiece of the development and is currently being exhibited until 5 May 2011 at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai.

The resort will feature accommodation ranging from business-bachelor quarters to family suites with up to five bedrooms, as well as a restaurant, a large swimming pool and sunbathing area, tennis courts, landscaped gardens, a children’s area and a gym.
