Thailand’s Minor Hotel Group, best known for its luxury hotel brand Anantara, has said it will be venturing into Qatar and launch its first property, the Anantara Doha Island Resort and Spa, in 2014.

It said the 141 room luxury resort will be set on a 13 hectare island and accessible by speedboat from Doha. Rooms will include a range of over water pool villas, and there will be four swimming pools, including a surf pool with wave machine, an Anantara Spa, a 24 hour fitness center, a tennis court, a kids’ club, a golf putting course, a bowling alley and a cinema.

The island will also be home to a marina accommodating up to 50 boats, while an offshore reef is also being developed allowing guests to scuba dive.

Minor Hotel Group is partnering with Qatar-based company Al Rayyan Hospitality for its first property in the country.

‘The Middle East is a key strategic area of development for Minor Hotel Group and we are actively looking at opportunities to grow not only Anantara but also our Avani and Oaks brands in the region,’ said Dillip Rajakarier, chief executive officer of Minor Hotel Group.

Qatar will be the second country of operation for Minor Hotel Group in the Middle East after the UAE, where the group runs three hotel resorts in Abu Dhabi, the Anantara Desert Islands Resort & Spa, the Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort & Spa and the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa. Two more projects are slated to open in Abu Dhabi later in 2013, the Anantara Al Yamm Villas and the Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Sahel Villas.

In Dubai, the Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa would also open in 2013, while the Anantara Towers, a residential and commercial three-tower complex in Dubai’s Jumeirah Lake Towers district, have been on hold since 2008.
