Qetaifan Island North is Qetaifan Projects’ first project; a distinct island featuring a state-of-the-art water park, luxurious hotels, unrivaled accommodation and world class facilities that make it a modern, globally competitive master planned integrated community with a unique design that is inspired by the rich culture and nature of the region. The Island’s location and its distinctive waterfront represent a new and exciting way of life that symbolizes vision and future ambition, offering its residents an integrated living experience. It is worth mentioning that Qetaifan Island North, located off Lusail city, features seven beaches; which makes it the city’s distinct waterfront destination. The island spans approximately 1.3 million square meters with 830,000 square meters of attractions.
H.E Sheikh Nasser Bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, Managing Director of Qetaifan Projects and Vice Chairman of Katara Hospitality, expressed his delight at launching sales on Qetaifan Island North, saying: “We are fortunate to be working on one of the most honorable national projects which in turn aims to serve various sectors of the country such as tourism and real estate development, which will contribute effectively to Qatar National Vision 2030, especially as the country is witnessing a remarkable development in all sectors in the light of the 2022 World Cup preparations. He added “there is no doubt that the freehold law allowing ownership for non-Qataris on Qetaifan Island North will contribute to increasing opportunities for foreign investment in the real estate sector”.
He elaborated “as we believe in the need for concerted efforts between the state’s institutions, Qetaifan Projects has signed a number of agreements, including 17 memorandums of agreement with international tour operators aimed to activating tourism in the State of Qatar, in collaboration with Katara Hospitality, Qatar National Tourism Council, and Qatar Airways.” H.E concluded his speech by saying “we believe in the future of Qetaifan Island North, and we are working hard and sincerely to make the island a competitive touristic attraction with a new concept of living, where all the required amenities are at your fingertips, including a school and a medical center. As well as The waterpark, considered as one of the most appealing attractions on the island, that will be operated by Rixos Hotels for the first time in Qatar, along with the Souq, hotels, and the beach club.”

Be Part of Qetaifan Island North Fulfilled Community
Imagine living in a place where everything you might need is at your fingertips .. Now imagine if that place is also, an Island! This is what differentiates Qetaifan Island North from any other development. An island that enables you to enjoy the luxury of living with all the required services and facilities away from the crowded city. Some of the most important facilities featured at Qetaifan Island North are the school and medical center; which will add value to the island and make it an attractive location for investment that works in the benefit of all parties; from residents to the investor.
The Platinum Sponsor and the expected participation in Cityscape 2019
In a statement issued by Qetaifan Projects, “Although it is our first participation in Cityscape, we have made sure that our participation in the exhibition is commensurate with the ambition behind this project. The development of Qetaifan Island North is more than just a project. We see it differently, in addition to its being one of the national projects that aim to serve the real estate development sector, the elements and attractions that will be featured on the island will in turn aim to serve different sectors of the country, most notably the hotels and waterpark, which will meet the growing demand and revitalize the tourism sector. We have brought in international partnerships such as Rixos Hotels operating the waterpark, hotels, and beach club for the first time in Qatar. We believe that standing-out is one way of creativity, and seeing things differently is our way to success. Our differentiator starts from within, our work environment, led by H.E Sheikh Nasser Bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani, with whom we work hand in hand believing in the project and its objectives. We believe that all involved parties must succeed, starting from the employees to the investor. Hence, our distinction to make Qetaifan Island North an island like no other.”
On this occasion, Mr. Chris Speller, CEO of Cityscape Group welcomed the participation of Qetaifan Projects as the Platinum Sponsor of Cityscape 2019 and considered it the beginning of a fruitful partnership. He said, “We are pleased to have Qetaifan Projects on board as a Platinum Exhibition Sponsor for Cityscape Qatar. Qetaifan Island North, which is shaping up to be the country’s premier luxury entertainment destination, aligns with the National Vision 2030 of modernization, economic growth, social development and environmental management; and echoes our efforts to highlight the country’s real estate opportunities.”
