OUR FUTURE

We are extending our reach and influence

 

Katara Hospitality currently has 40 properties in operation or under development within its portfolio.

And as we continue our journey of expansion in Qatar and abroad. With outstanding properties and a solid reputation, we aim to maintain our premier position as the leading hospitality organization in the world.

Our domestic portfolio is strong and we are inspired to take on business challenges and invest in iconic hospitality heritage properties around the world, each of which represents both a legacy and a future. We take immense pride and pleasure in bringing them back to their former glory and establishing a strong partnership for a bright future together.

 

 

Our vision is as much about our nation’s dreams as it is about our own. As consistent marketers of Qatar as both a business and leisure destination, our country needs desirable, peerless hotel rooms and it needs a high profile abroad. Our twin track strategy delivers this and goes beyond.

As Katara Hospitality evolves, it will continue to identify new opportunities to create lasting value. As a company focused on thinking ahead, we aspire to a future filled with success and commitment to the highest standards of business and service delivery.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Katara Hospitality has put in place a comprehensive, integrated approach to Corporate Social Responsibility, building on our established infrastructure for addressing crucial issues related to the environment, community, workplaces and product development. We support the sourcing of local produce, services and building local supplier capacity, to bring sustainable economic worth and empowerment to the communities where we are active, whether in Qatar or abroad.

Corporate Social Responsibility is also an important element in shaping how we better manage our costs and revenue. Being responsible reduces our expenditure, especially on energy.

Travel and tourism is one of the worlds largest economic and employment sectors and consequently has a huge global influence on the environment. Our current priority is to focus on the impact of our hotels and resorts, where we can have the greatest control in creating positive outcomes. We have undertaken a major initiative with the Ministry of Environment for the protection of the sea and reefs at Sealine Beach Resort in Qatar and are undertaking a similar programme at the Renaissance Sharm El Sheikh Golden View Beach Resort in Egypt.

We have increased our focus on understanding the environmental impact of our activities and aim to reduce our electricity and water consumption at all our properties. We continually seek to reduce negative environmental impacts resulting from our activities by adopting environmentally preferable business practices and innovative technologies.

 

QATARISATION

Katara Hospitality is committed to investing in our indigenous population and supporting the aims of the ‘Qatarisation’ initiative that creates unique employment and career opportunities for Qatari nationals.

We have implemented training programmes for promising Qatari high school graduates as well as setting up a sponsorship initiative at Stenden University and Qatar University to encourage young Qataris to enter the hospitality industry. And within our own organisation we encourage multi-discipline training, creating highly motivated and deeply skilled individuals who are given a platform to develop their talents both locally and internationally.

Katara Hospitality supports future leaders by launching Katara Hospitality University, an internal employee’s training program to support continuous development and growth.

Through these initiatives, we believe that we can contribute positively to the socio-economic welfare of Qatar.
