Qetaifan Projects announced on Tuesday the launching of the waterside retail, café, and restaurant units along the canal of Qetaifan Island North on the sidelines of Cityscape Qatar, which concludes today (June 22) at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre (DECC).
The waterside retail and festival plazas are operated by Rixos Hotels, along with the beach club, hotel, and “Meryal” waterpark.
The retail services on the island include canal-side cafes and a range of restaurants – from quick service to exotic fine dining.
The retail and festival plaza areas include 92 units with a capacity for 6,500 people, including the Meryal waterpark area.
It is worth mentioning that the waterside retail, café, and restaurant units are in three adjacent locations around the world-class waterpark Meryal, 5-star luxury hotel run by Rixos Hotels, and at the entertainment and Souq areas, with a total area of 12,300sq m on the banks of the canal, in addition to 1,400sq m of parking spaces.
The retail and festival plaza units are important to all regions because it works as an attraction spot, and the attraction increases depending on the region and the facilities surrounding it,” Qetaifan Projects managing director Sheikh Nasser bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said. “The retail plaza and festival plaza units are located at the heart of the island and are among other assets; they are considered as the main engine of the surrounding facilities, perhaps the most prominent of which are the Meryal waterpark, beach club, and hotel, in addition to the facilities that the retail and festival plaza units are providing on the canal-side and the various entertainment events that will contribute effectively to the revitalisation of tourism.”
“The retail units are part of Qetaifan Island North real estate development plan, which in turn will also enrich the business assets at Lusail City,” said Qetaifan Projects chief operating officer Hesham Sharaf.
“We are very proud to announce the release of the restaurant, café, and retail units, which lie at the heart of Qetaifan Island North,” said Rixos retail director Adrian Camps. “This will support the incredible iconic water park and Rixos 5-star hotel, and will provide the most amazing canal-side retail and dining experience in the Middle East.”
