(ARABNEWSWIRE.COM, May 23, 2015 ) Doha, Qatar – Mr. Moataz Al Khayyat's leading contracting firm, KCT Qatar, celebrates the completion of the highly anticipated 24,000 square metre luxury 5-star Hilton Double Tree Hotel. The 186 key new build stretches 75m up into the Gulf State's skyline & boasts a Sky Bar closely accompanied by a pool deck and Shisha Lounge amongst a plethora of world-class amenities.
It was the highest priority for Moataz Al Khayyat's firm to meet the latest standards stipulated by the Qatar Tourism Authority to which they stated a hotel of this calibre must have a children's play area and a mosque, located on the 11th floor and a fully equipped Spa and gym, located on the 12th and 13th floors respectively. On the 14th floor is the Presidential Suite, offering 250 square meters of sumptuous surroundings and views.
Arguably the most striking feature of the hotel is its 27-metre atrium, spanning from the third to the ninth floor, featuring both panoramic glass elevators and a 25-metre Fobius chandelier suspended at the centre.
Speaking on behalf of the company, managing director Moataz Al Khayyat commented, "The early phase of this project was particularly challenging as we had a limited footprint to work on in terms of both storage and laydown area, something that was exacerbated during the shift changes that included 1,100 people working in two shifts around the clock. This being said, the remainder of the work has gone very smoothly and we look forward to the Hilton being able to welcome their first guests in a few months from now".
