Time Hotel Management has confirmed it is opening its first hotel in Qatar, Time Rako which is a four-star, 102 key property located in the Al Wakra district of Doha.
Due to open its doors in Q2 2017, Time Rako features over 102 rooms and suites.
Mohamed Awadalla, CEO, Time Hotels, said: “With TIME Rako Hotel we have created a hospitality experience that will rival Qatar’s flagship properties, but with a fresh, friendly and contemporary approach to hospitality.
“The hotel is fully equipped with everything the modern traveller requires and whether guests are staying with us for business or leisure – our value-based market proposition will be highly attractive.”
The opening is part of an expansion programme, with the company set to extend its footprint to Ajman and Fujairah in the UAE, followed by Saudi Arabia, before the end of Q4 2018.
“Qatar is a thriving country with a fast-paced hospitality industry, which presents new opportunities for Time Hotels to grow its presence,” said Awadalla.
“Expansion is the main driver of our business development plan for 2017 and there will be new openings taking place throughout the year in Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Fujairah and Ajman.”
The name of the hotel, Rako, comes from the Japanese word for relaxation and enjoyment.
