Qatar-based Katara Hospitality has unveiled plans to construct a hotel with ‘crossed sword’ shape of the towers, which gracefully intertwine, replicates the Qatar seal and, integrated with landscaped gardens, rises from a podium giving the impression that the entire architectural complex is floating on the sea.

The firm says its new project – the Lusail Marina Iconic Development – will become an iconic hospitality symbol of the 21st century, and will be ready to welcome guests for the FIFA World Cup.

Announcing their plans for the Qatar-based property at this year’s Arabian Travel Market (ATM), Hamad Abdulla Al Mulla, CEO, Katara Hospitality said: “This stunning structure matches our aspiration for Katara Hospitality to become one of the world’s most recognised hospitality brand identities.”
