Sharq Village and Spa will be increasing their brand awareness and highlighting The Royal Villa at this year’s ILTM.
General manger, Hossein Vetry and director of sales and marketing Sherif Sabry will be attending.
The Royal Villa is proving to be the venue of choice for many royal and diplomatic delegations to stay at when they are in Doha, especially with groups from the Gulf states according to the public relations department at Sharq Village and Spa.
The Royal Villa at Sharq Village and Spa was recently named among the best suites in the world by US publication Elite Traveler in their ‘Top 101 Hotel Suites in the World’.
Said Vetry, “The Royal Villa at Sharq Village and Spa is truly exceptional and we are privileged to be able to offer our esteemed guests such a unique and authentic Arabian experience.”
He said that it was given the Arabic name Beit Al Shyoukh which translates to “House of Royalty”, and that the Royal Villa is the preferred accommodation for visiting heads of states, corporate titans and celebrities to Doha. Since its launch in June, more than eight presidents and ministerial or royal delegations have stayed here.
Operated by The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, Sharq Village and Spa is a luxury beachfront property situated on the Persian Gulf, 15 minutes from the city centre. Modelled on a traditional Qatari village, the 174 room resort blends authentic Arabian architecture with the very latest in modern comforts and amenities.
Services and facilities include restaurants and lounges serving Middle Eastern and Western cuisine with outdoor dining options, a cigar lounge and rooftop shisha terrace; a 6,500 sq m Six Senses Spa with 23 treatment rooms, private ladies’ areas, and two outdoor pools; and over 1,130 sq m of conference space that includes two ballrooms, a boardroom and a grand reception foyer.
The 2,099 sq m Royal Villa, ornately modelled after a sheikh’s palace, is divided into two distinct wings. Guest accommodation includes the royal suite, guest suite, a pair of two bedroom suites and a pair of king suites, along with majlis seating areas, study and dining room. The villa’s exquisite furnishings and treasures from the orient are steeped in tradition. All aspects of detailing refer back to authentic Qatari designs - handrails, stone carvings and inlaid mosaics create a sense of continuity and refinement that reinforces the rich history of the local culture.
